Gravity Mobility, a Google-funded startup, has installed the first electric vehicle charging stations in New York with a maximum power of 500 kW. While most current EVs are limited to 300-350 kW charging, these new devices can provide a range of over 320 km (200 miles) after just five minutes of charging.

Gravity Mobility announced that 24 of these fast chargers are already operational in New York. About the size of a suitcase, a single station can deliver a 320 km range in five minutes, and in one hour, it can provide enough charge for a 2,400 km (1,500 miles) range, significantly exceeding the battery capacity of current electric vehicles.

While designed to meet the needs of future EVs with much greater range, the company says they have the capacity to produce and implement thousands of these stations annually. Several additional locations are already under contract and in development so we expect to see those stations in Europe soon.

“We can launch at least as many stations as Tesla”

“Compared to the number of Supercharger stations Tesla launches each year, we have the capacity to install at least as many to develop our network. There are no obstacles in this regard,” said Gravity CEO Moshe Cohen to Reuters.

The rollout of Gravity Mobility’s ultra-fast charging stations marks a significant step towards a more robust and convenient charging infrastructure, ready to facilitate the widespread adoption of long-range electric vehicles.
