Gasoline and diesel vehicles can be refueled in 5 minutes, and then travel 300 miles or more. ZapGo has developed new energy storage technology capable of delivering the same driver experience in an EV, but without the need to upgrade grid infrastructure. New vehicles such as the Porsche Taycan can now charge at 350kW, 3x faster than the current Tesla superchargers. New electric trucks and buses will require 1MW chargers. The ZapGo system originally developed in Oxford, UK buffers the grid off peak and then discharges through ABB high-rate DC chargers hundreds of times faster than conventional batteries to provide this rapid rate of charge. As the system contains no lithium or cobalt, it is low cost to produce and carries no fire risk. The system has a long life, an estimated 100,000 charge discharge cycles and can be amortized over 30 years. At the end of life, the energy storage can be recycled. The new system is being developed in conjunction with University of North Carolina (UNCC Epic), Duke Energy, Parker-Hannifin and ABB.
