A new charging park for electric commercial vehicles has been opened by Daimler at the Stuttgart-Untert├╝rkheim headquarters in Germany.

Daimler Trucks and Mercedes-Benz Vans will jointly use the charging stations for its electric test vehicles. The new charging park will be a further step in the electrification strategy and connected corporate activities. The stations have a total output of 1 megawatt, distributed to two DC fast charging stations with 300 kilowatts each for trucks and three more charging stations with 150 kilowatt output each for vans. When the vehicle is connected to an appropriate station, the charging process is started via a chip by which the station recognises the respective vehicle automatically. The stations are equipped with all common plug variants for electric trucks.
