Think to Use Level III Fast Charging

Another partnership in the electric vehicle field is taking shape, this time involving Norwegian electric car manufacturer Think and American infrastructure and charging solutions provider AeroVironment (AV).

The two will work together to showcase how the Think City Car and AV's Level III charging solution get along. According to the initial findings, the Think City can be recharged to 80 percent of capacity in only 15 minutes.

"THINK and AeroVironment are setting a new standard for quick re-charging - zero to 80 percent in just 15 minutes," Think CEO Richard Canny said in a statement. "This is a major leap forward for electric vehicles. The development and deployment of very-fast-charge stations will speed the electrification of automobiles worldwide."

"A safe, reliable and accessible charging infrastructure is necessary for broad adoption of electric vehicles such as the THINK City," Michael Bissonette, AV senior vice president and general manager of Efficient Energy Systems business segment added. "Our portfolio of true fast-charge systems and commercial and home charge stations will help drivers integrate electric vehicles into their lives."

Taking advantage of the new partnership, the Norwegians also released some of the details of the vehicle which will arrive in the US later this year.

The local Think will have a top speed of 70 mph and a range of 100 miles on a full charge. It can be recharged from any 220-volt or 110-volt plugs. The fast charge system will come as an addition to the existing charging means.
