Mitsubishi Unveils Solar-Powered Vehicle Charging Station

Great, fantastic news from Mitsubishi:  Driving an electric vehicle (EV) can be a source of personal pride and a strong statement of how you see yourself in the world. Unfortunately, it can also be a little stressful if you have to worry about your car’s charge running out in the middle of nowhere


.Enter Mitsubishi, who has recently announced the debut of a solar-powered charging station at their headquarters in Cypress, California. Preceding the launch of the new Mitsubishi i electric vehicle in November, the opening of this charging station is designed to show the company’s commitment to improving the national infrastructure for EV drivers.  Eventually, certified Mitsubishi dealers across the US will also be EV-ready in preparation for the launch of the i.

 Each charging station supports CHAdeMO compatible electric vehicles, with the capacity to charge up to four at a time. According to Mitsubishi, “…the station features three types of chargers with different voltages: standard level 1 voltage (110v) will deliver a 100 percent charge in 22 hours on the new Mitsubishi i; level 2 (220v) which can charge the vehicle in six hours; and level 3 CHAdeMO Quick Charger, which can charge to 80 percent battery capacity in 25 minutes.”

Looking towards the future and increased electric vehicle popularity, Mitsubishi also foresees the installation of EV charging stations in locations where people spend their time working, shopping, and studying."

Have you looked at the projected operating costs of an EV?  They are cheap, very attractive.

That is a nice looking charging station.  Let's hope we see lots more of them capturing the sun and powering our cars.

OTHER NEWS:   Please notice the changes we've made to our blog.  We made it easier to read on the side, with better color contrast in that area, and added a link to our current show.  Take a look and make sure you go back and watch our show with Al Dahlberg, Project Get Ready, as we talk about EV's (and Al Cerrone with the Volt).
According to Mitsubishi Motors North America President Yoichi Yokozawa, “We hope that our dealers, learning institutions, and municipalities will look to this technology with a keen eye towards the future, and bear in mind that the gradual acceptance of the pure-EV transportation will be aided by increasing the number of facilities like this one.”
