DC charger on a wall?

ABB presents at the 2018 eMove360° in Munich, Germany (October 17 - 18) its latest charging product, the 24 kW DC wallbox.

It's designed for single or double output (CCS Combo and CHAdeMO) and can handle up to 920 V battery packs. Despite the compact size that enables installation on the wall, the weight without cables is 70 kg.

ABB says that primary applications for such DC fast chargers are

  • Office, workplace
  • Hotel and hospitality
  • Parking structures
  • Dealerships
  • Urban fleets
  • Public or private campus
  • Sensitive grid applications

We are little skeptical about the 24 kW DC chargers, especially in Europe, where you can have 22 kW 3-phase AC station at a fraction of the cost, and there is a growing number of EVs that can handle 3-phase charging (all Teslas, Renault ZOE, smart with an option, and the new Audi e-tron, just to name a few).
