XCharge’s Texas Expansion: Igniting EV Charging Solutions with a Cutting-Edge Factory
The future of electric vehicles (EVs) is rapidly evolving, and the charging infrastructure is a make or break part of its growth. XCharge North America is taking a significant step towards shaping this future by establishing a production facility in the USA. Located in Kyle, Texas, this factory will pave the way for advanced DC fast charger manufacturing, contributing to the growth of EV adoption in the country.
Spanning an initial area of around 325 square meters, the new facility will expand to an impressive 1,858 square meters in the years to come. Situated in an industrial park, this facility will become a hub of innovation for the EV charging industry. This strategic location between Austin and San Antonio places it in a prime spot to cater to the EV charging needs of the region.
XCharge’s offerings include the powerful C6 DC charging station with up to 150 kW of power, as well as the Net Zero series. The Net Zero series, equipped with batteries from BYD for buffer storage, provides up to 210 kW of power for simultaneous charging of two electric vehicles. Moreover, this series features a Battery2Grid function, allowing surplus energy to be sold back to the grid during peak hours.
While the specific charging ports to be offered in the Texas-made charging posts are not disclosed in the announcement, XCharge NA’s focus is clear: to provide cost-efficient innovative EV solutions tailored to alleviate grid constraints and enhance EV accessibility. This dedication to innovative solutions that suit the local grid infrastructure sets XCharge in the rapidly evolving EV landscape.
Aatish Patel, President and Co-Founder of XCharge NA, emphasized the company’s commitment to partnership with the local community, including institutions like Texas State University. This collaborative approach aligns with XCharge NA’s vision of increasing job opportunities and driving economic growth through its operations.
By establishing this production facility in Texas, XCharge North America is not only contributing to the growth of EV charging infrastructure but also demonstrating the company’s dedication to enhancing EV accessibility, viability, and sustainability as a viable alternative transportation option. As EV adoption continues to rise, XCharge NA’s innovative solutions will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of transportation and energy.
