Former Nissan North America Chairman Jose Valls has launched an electric vehicle charging infrastructure startup called GenZ EV Solutions to assist auto retailers with high-speed charging solutions.
The Miami-based company will serve as a distributor for ADS-TEC Energy, a company that specializes in high-speed, high-efficiency charging technology. ADS-TEC's battery-buffered ports can draw power for fast charging from multiple sections of the grid, including areas that would otherwise be deemed low energy.
"The boxes can take up to 320-kilowatt charging rate capacity that allows ultra-fast charging even from a low power rate," Valls, CEO of GenZ, said in an interview on Automotive News' "Daily Drive" podcast. He said that a built-in booster can draw from part of the grid that only dispenses between 30 and 100 kw of energy.
