Electric cars are increasing on the roads all over the world. In turn, this increase in EV requires an increase in public shippers. However, the growth speed of one vector is considerably higher than the other, which brings a serious deficit in the supply of electrical charging. A Russian startup has come up with an appeal solution. The L-Charge is a gas or hydrogen powered truck that can charge 48 electric cars a day.
This fast charging vehicle for electric cars promises to recharge 100 km of autonomy in five minutes.
Electric cars fueled anywhere in the city
The idea is interesting and in some cities where the amount of trams is much higher than the availability of chargers, it could be successful. This truck was designed by a russian startup, dubbed the L-Charge, is capable of charging more than 40 electric cars a day.
The company thought about the project, developed an entire infrastructure to provide the service and plans to arrive in London this year to provide services to users who need it.
Electric energy generated from the use of gas or hydrogen
As you can read on the company’s website, to provide enough energy to charge the ambitious 48 electric cars a day, the L-Charge has natural gas or hydrogen tanks to supply that electricity. Fuel can be stored and transported in the form of a gas or liquid to be converted into clean, or low-carbon energy, viable almost anywhere in the world.
It should be noted that liquefied natural gas chargers emit three times less CO₂ per 100 kilometers than diesel cars, but also emit more polluting gases than the electricity grid.
One of the assets of this ambitious business is being able to charge quickly. Thus, the estimated charging time to charge the battery of an average electric car to 80% of its capacity is between 5 and 7 minutes, according to data provided by the company itself.
In addition, the equipment can charge the car battery up to 100% in 20 minutes.
Prices that must make a profit for the company
Despite being a product that has to captivate the market, this does not mean that it is cheap. The price per service is significantly higher than what some fixed recharge lines establish per kWh consumed.
The Russian company stipulates a cost per kilowatt-hour consumed of 80 cents, which is practically double that of other operators (in the local market). Despite this, your demand increases monthly.
The company in its publications made known that it has already visited several cities all over the world. Despite this, the service is only working in Moscow, and they report having an average of 6 requests per day to supply electricity to electric cars in the Russian capital.
This is yet another example of how a new automotive segment opens up a range of new service delivery opportunities.
