The new cost-effective, integrated HV booster technology makes charging 800 V+ EVs compatible with any charging station

(PresseBox) (Nuertingen, Germany, )
The mature, most cost-effective 400 V DC / 800 V DC charging compatibility technology from the engineering partner hofer powertrain solves the charging network incompatibility. It makes charging in long-distance driving more accessible without limitations, brings competitive advantages in efficiency, weight and size, and reduces production costs by far.

Studies have shown a clear trend transiting towards 800 V+ powertrain platforms, with a growing number of OEMs and emerging car manufacturers introducing their new 800 V (and above) electric models. This is due to the recognized drive cycle efficiency improvements through reduced energy losses and weight reductions stemming from using fewer materials in powertrains, promoting sustainability, and boosting the driving range of EVs in the future. 

However, the expansion of an 800 V charging network is still in the early days. In many European countries, the UK, and the US, only about 15-25% of all publicly available charging stations currently offer 800 V charging, affecting the transition to more efficient powertrains.

hofer powertrain has dedicated the recent 3+ years to developing, testing, and optimizing this comparably low-cost, compact, enabling solution – the new integrated High-Voltage Booster Technology by hofer powertrain. This technology enables the charging of future-oriented electric cars today, independent of the ultrafast-charging network availability and even its roll-out in the future.

The ability to charge a car anytime and anywhere is one of the main demands of consumers today. And since driver acceptance plays a significant role in the speed at which new models come to the market, this advanced technology to overcome such barriers is key to accelerating the adaptability of efficient 800 V+ vehicles.
