ABB E-mobility delivers millionth EV charger



Jul 13, 2023
  • ABB E-mobility has sold more than one million EV chargers globally across its AC and DC charging portfolio
  • Continued growth facilitated by doubling of production capacity following launch of new DC fast charger facility in Valdarno, Italy
  • Milestone underscores ABB E-mobility’s commitment to enabling an electrified, emission-free mobility future

ABB E-mobility has announced the delivery of its one millionth electric vehicle charger, the latest milestone in the company’s ongoing mission to enable an emission-free future through smart and reliable EV charging solutions.

With a presence in more than 85 markets, the launch of ABB E-mobility’s new $30 million, 172,200 square foot production facility in Valdarno, Italy in 2022, completed a doubling of the company’s production capacity over the last two years. The cutting-edge manufacturing site set a new benchmark for the sector, producing one DC fast charger every 20 minutes thanks to its seven production lines and enabling the company to continue the exceptional growth it has enjoyed in recent years.

In addition to its Valdarno facility, ABB E-mobility has continued its expansion globally. Earlier this month the company announced the commencement of manufacturing at its new production facility in the United States – set to produce up to 10,000 chargers annually for public charging, school buses and fleets.

Speaking on the announcement, ABB E-mobility CEO, Frank Mühlon, said: “From the production of the EU’s first 50kW charger in 2010 to the launch of the Terra 360, which is capable of delivering 60 miles (100 km) of range in less than three minutes, ABB E-mobility has long sought to develop the innovations necessary to create an emission-free mobility future.

“While our continual investment in research and development shows our ongoing commitment to enhance the field of e-mobility, it is the global delivery of these solutions at scale which is integral to the realization of our goals. I would like to thank our customers globally for their continued collaboration in hitting this one millionth charger milestone. I look forward to the millions yet to come, and to the cleaner, greener world they will help create.”

“North America has been a big part of ABB E-mobility’s success story over the last decade, having delivered thousands of fast chargers across the United States and Canada,” added Bob Stojanovic, SVP of ABB E-mobility in North America. “We are fully prepared to satisfy the demand for this critical infrastructure by adding significant manufacturing capacity in the United States. Our investment in local and global manufacturing and R&D will ensure that ABB E-mobility will continue to be a leader in the industry.”
