Swedish utility Vattenfall and Japanese automotive company Honda sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to form a home-based charging system for electric cars with flexible electricity contracts designed for electric vehicle owners in Europe, Vattenfall and Honda announce to the press.
The charging equipment will allow customers to put juice back into their cars when power is cheapest and when the proportion of renewable energy is the grid mix is at its highest – or in a combination of these two factors. The main selling point, Honda tells, is charging speed. The chargers will be available in a single-phase model rated at 7.4 kW and a triple-phase variant at 22 kW. According to Honda, the triple-phase power supply will be capable of recharging a Honda e 100 percent in 4.1 hours.
