West Seneca, New York, Feb. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Worksport Ltd. (Nasdaq: WKSP; WKSPW) subsidiary, Terravis Energy, Inc. (the “Company” or “Terravis Energy”), is pleased to announce that installation of its proprietary electric vehicle (EV) fast charging stations–that began in January 2023 with two direct current (DC) fast chargers at Worksport’s West Seneca, NY factory–is now completed.
Each station’s initial two charge points are rated at 120 kilowatt-hours (kWh) and equipped with two CCS1 connectors (Combined Charging Standard: A standard for charging electric vehicles that uses Combo 1 or Combo 2 connectors to provide power at up to 350 kilowatts), also known as pistols. The Company is planning installations of additional DC fast chargers in the near future as well, rated at a minimum of 240 kWh.
Lorenzo Rossi, Terravis Energy’s CEO, provided the following insights: “Our EV fast charger design will compete with the best in the market because of its advanced technology and superior engineering. Our EV chargers will be equipped with a high-power charging system, capable of providing fast-charging speeds of up to 280 kWh, allowing for a quick and efficient charging process, and feature advanced energy management capabilities that optimize energy usage for cost savings. Additionally, the EV chargers are equipped with advanced safety features, such as overcurrent and overheating protection, to ensure the safety of both the vehicle and the user.”
Deployment of these production-level EV fast charging systems will showcase their modular features that are planned to provide EV drivers with real-time analytic information on a crisp seven-inch LCD and intelligent network communication capabilities, including Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, RFID/NFC, and cellular connectivity. Their user-friendly navigation within a human-machine interface, power supply safety system, and waterproof & dustproof technology, with a robust and weather-resistant enclosure, will provide welcoming customer experiences.
“Overall, we believe that our EV charging solutions are among the best in the market because of their advanced technology, superior engineering, considerate safety features, and user-friendly interfaces, as well as their capabilities to integrate with other systems and sustainable energy sources. They are intended to provide reliable, efficient, and safe fast-charging experiences for electric vehicle owners,” added Lorenzo Rossi.
