Paccar Parts is introducing new electric vehicle charging stations to support the global launch of electric vehicles. The chargers are designed to be not only compatible with Kenworth, Peterbilt, and DAF electric trucks, but also to work for other electric commercial vehicles.

According to the company, customers can purchase the chargers from Kenworth, Peterbilt and DAF dealers and TRP store locations worldwide, choosing from multiple DC fast chargers rated up to 920V DC. These electric vehicle charging stations maximize coverage over a wide range of EVs, including trucks, vans, buses and other commercial vehicles.

“We offer a tailored approach to charging solutions that include best-fit options with charging levels from 20 kilowatts (kW) up to 350 kilowatts charging power,” said Chris Scheel, Paccar Parts senior director of marketing.

The 20 kW charger option is a UL-certified DC Wallbox and the perfect charger for commercial parking and fleet or dealership service facilities. The low power DC charger is easy to install and ideal for vehicles with extended dwell times.

The 50 kW model supports the daily operations of an individual truck for medium- and heavy-duty fleets. The charger has superior usability and reliability, Paccar said, as well as integrated connected services for remote monitoring, diagnostics, statistics and firmware updates.

Designed for convenient fast charging of all electric vehicles, the 120 and 180 kW chargers are for fleets operating multiple routes or even multiple shifts. The compact size makes it ideal for urban use, said the company, and the 180 kW unit has enough power to charge most trucks in less than four hours.

For EV fleet operators, the 350 kW charger is an ultra-fast power cabinet that can charge one vehicle at full rated power or share power between two vehicles simultaneously.

The full line of electric vehicle charging stations is backed by a two-year warranty. The chargers include an RFID reader for user authentication and a cellular connection with a two-year cellular service plan. A two-year service level agreement is included with the chargers.

Musk guaranteed a certain price to charge the Semi. Was that just for the mega chargers or for any charger? Still it could get very pricey for Tesla

Well that's nice. That's been one of the stupid things about a lot of the public stations, like Electrify America uses, is that they may have two charging cables attached to them, so they can reach cars in two parking spaces, but were still limited to only one side being capable of running at a time.
