Zurich, Switzerland, September 23, 2020: Global engineering company, ABB announced on Tuesday that it has offered a new range of charging solutions for Dongfeng Honda’s electric vehicle (EV) models. Dongfeng Honda, which was formed by the partnership between China’s Dongfeng Motor Group and Japan’s Honda Motor Corporation, was supplied with both AC and DC chargers to facilitate the final inspection of its best-selling models by the factory.

The factory which is based in the Wuhan Economic and Technological Development Zone of China's Hubei Province primarily manufactures the best-selling Dongfeng Honda models. It has over 980,000 square meter area to help the company satisfy the rising demand for EVs in China. As per the New Energy Vehicle Industry Development Plan (2021-2035), China is projected to have more than 64 million electric vehicles on the road by 2030.

The ABB chargers mounted in the electric vehicle assembly line in China are helping to ensure the charging efficiency of up to 120,000 EVs per year as each electric vehicle is tested before leaving the factory. Based on the previous experience with ABB’s low and medium voltage chargers, Dongfeng Honda has selected a range of ABB chargers for installation in the assembly line of electric vehicles.  Among these includes the powerful EVinn 7kW AC chargers and the regular 60kW Terra 63Z DC chargers that have been installed for the inspection of vehicle line and fault analysis area. In the narrow confines of the inspection line, a smaller 120kW 2-in-1 Terra 124Z DC charger has been used.

Located in Zurich, ABB is a global pioneer in the area of EV technology. The company entered the EV charging market in the year 2010 and since then it has installed 14,000 DC fast-charging stations in around 80 countries across the world. It has also successfully installed its fast-charging systems in over 30 cities of China, assisting the country in developing future-oriented and efficient transport infrastructure. According to the latest financial report, ABB generated consolidated revenue of USD 12,370 million during H1 2020 as compared to the previous year’s revenue of the same period which was USD 14,018 million, a slight decline by (-) 12 % Y-o-Y. The company’s operation was hit due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Earlier this month, ABB invested CHF 40 million in the construction of an R&D facility to expand its presence in Switzerland. In August, the company launched a Terra 184 electric vehicle charger that was installed all over Japan to modernize the country’s electric vehicle infrastructure. In July, ABB also launched a new analytics and artificial intelligent software to help industries optimize and streamline their business operations.
