DBT (ISIN Code: FR0013066750 – Ticker: ALDBT), the European leader in fast-charging stations for electric vehicles, has presented a new generation of terminals, making it the first manufacturer on the continent to offer a multi-standard ultra-fast charging station.
The NG150, an innovative new charger that can deliver up to three times the output of current fast-charging stations, was unveiled by the French SME at the 2016 Paris Motor Show from Thursday 29 September. Drawing on twenty-five years of experience and expertise, this latest generation of stations is ahead of its time and market.
Responding to recent announcements by car manufacturers and their promise of even greater autonomy for tomorrow's electric and hybrid vehicles, DBT has risen to the challenge and, from spring 2017, will deliver a new range of charging stations that are more powerful, faster, and more compatible with existing and future models alike.
Hervé Borgolz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DBT, said: "The project we presented during our IPO is now well underway and today we are pleased to be able to unveil the latest addition in a new range of flagship products that will ensure we retain our position as a front-runner on the electric vehicles market. The deployment of ever faster charging stations that are capable of recharging a battery in under 20 minutes is crucial for the development of electric vehicles. With this new range of products, DBT is able to anticipate the arrival of a new generation of electric vehicles with high-capacity batteries that guarantee more miles of range for less charging times. We are very excited to be able to present this extremely innovative product to our clients and partners."
