It takes less than one second to connect the bus to the charging point, making it the world’s fastest flash-charging connection technology. A further 1 to 5 minutes charge at the terminus at the end of the line enables a full recharge of the batteries. ABB ’s flash-charging technology and onboard traction equipment, which make the flash-charging possible, are part of its innovat...
