At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) tomorrow in Las Vegas, Blink plans to announce seven new charging products, including chargers for fleet, public and home use. Meanwhile, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the EQXX, a new electric concept car that the automaker says will be able to travel 620 miles on a single charge, based on computer modeling.
One of the many barriers to widespread EV adoption in the U.S. is a lack of charging infrastructure. Blink is among several upstart firms looking to make charging more accessible.Blink’s planned new public charging solutions include a compact DC Wall 50 kW fast charger that can be installed on a wall or as a pedestal, Electrek reports. It can charge two EVs at once. To use, drivers will need a Blink member card, credit card or mobile app.
