Blink Touts New Fast Chargers; Mercedes Unveils EV Concept Car

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.
