Search Driven for vehicles for sale
Mopar has announced that it's developed an at home wall charger for EVs.
It's a Level 2 (240 volt) charger which can supply 7.7kW of power and charges roughly six times faster than a Level 1 charger.
The chargers are WiFi capable, which means owners can monitor the progression and start and stop the charge from their phones. Ant they're also smart-grid optimised, meaning they can reduce energy costs by charging at low-rate times.
Mopar has ensured that the chargers are universally functional, but they can either a Jeep or Chrysler branded faceplate. While New Zealand doesn't have the Jeep Plug-in Hybrid currently, if we do eventually get it, the charger would be perfect for Jeep owners.
The charger is also available as both wired and plug-in variants, meaning you have options for different vehicles with different charging outlets.
Prices start at $599 USD ($882 NZD), and they're already for sale in the US.
