Energica joins CharIN e.v., a registered association founded by mayor manufacturers and suppliers for the electric automotive industry. Energica is the only manufacturer of electric motorcycles to join the Association.
The primary aims of CharIN e.v. are:
- To develop and establish the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the standard for charging battery-powered electric vehicles of all kinds
- To draw up requirements for the evolution of charging-related standards and develop a certification system for use by manufacturers implementing the CCS in their products
- To promote the CCS standard worldwide
Right from the start Energica believed and invested on the Combined Charging System (CCS) as standard: today Energica is the only electric motorcycle manufacturer to include in its products the DC Fast Charging technology based on CCS Combo.
“In the last years, the auto industry unveiled several new electric models, therefore it is necessary to affirm the CCS system as standard and to implement the infrastructure’s network in all countries” says Giampiero Testoni, CTO Energica Motor Company S.p.A.
“We are very pleased to be the first electric motorcycle manufacturer to join CharIN e.v.: with the authoritative members of the Association we are confident of being able to achieve CharIN e.v.’s goals” Testoni continues, “It’s important to generate an influential critical mass to standardize the CCS system and affirm it worldwide”.
