Short charging times make electric trucks more practical. The NEFTON consortium is therefore setting up a test bench with the help of TUM.

A science and industry consortium is working on a testing station to achieve significantly higher charging rates than have been possible in the past. This is intended to increase the electrification of heavy-load transports in the future. More robust charging points and accordingly configured vehicle components are to drastically reduce charging times for heavy-duty trucks, making electric drives more attractive to freight carriers. The project’s objective is to reduce battery charging time to only 15 minutes in the future.

Approximately 27 percent of the CO2 emissions caused by traffic in the EU in 2019 were attributable to heavy-duty trucks, according to the European Environment Agency (EEA). ...
