Speed matters - the ABB Terra 360 is the fastest high power charger in the world.

Compact and powerful - the high-power charging station Terra 360 brings more charging power to the world. 

The new ABB Terra 360 is the fastest all-in-one charger on the market. Designed by VETICA around the needs of today’s EV drivers. The ABB Terra 360 is more powerful, more flexible, more user-friendly and designed for better accessibility.

Available for every EV

The ABB Terra 360 is a charger for everyone. It can charge up to 4 vehicles at the same time and supports the major charging standards and adding 100 km in less than 3 minutes. 

The engineering teams from ABB developed the new design together with the Vetica Design team in close co-creation process. With its eye-catching design and intuitive user interface, the ABB Terra 360 provides the end user an exceptional charging experience.

Shaping the future with VETICA - with bidirectional technology

Vehicle-to-Grid 

ABB's bidirectional V2G technology allows electric vehicles to be used as part of a larger system. During periods when electricity demand increases, fully charged vehicles can feed their stored energy back into the network. ABB's bidirectional technology (V2G) opens up new opportunities for energy trading and smart energy management to achieve this. V2G technology enables energy stored in electric vehicle batteries to be released, allowing households and fleets to support the grid during peak demand. V2G gives utilities access to renewable energy stored in vehicles so they can better balance loads and alleviate grid congestion.

ABB’s Vehicle-to-Grid technology

With the number of electric vehicles on the world's roads expected to reach 559 million by 2040, our energy ecosystems must evolve. 
We at VETICA believe that energy needs to become smarter and more connected. 

For VETICA, sustainability means to always go that extra mile

ABB's V2G technology is a key component in the strategy to combat climate change. VETICA is helping ABB make this new technology easier and more efficient with world-class product design and intuitive interaction solutions. The opportunities for change in these challenging times and our roles as designers have never been more exciting.

User-Centered Design

In order to successfully bring a new technology such as the V2G solution to the market, firstly it is necessary to understand the needs of the future users. The user-friendliness, the general usability, as well as a flawless interaction with the new technology must allow safe and easy access. Therefore, hardware and software must be equally tuned to each other. In a close co-creation process with ABB, VETICA was able to realize its second fascinating charging station project.

Get fit for the future with Vetica

In collaboration with Vetica, ABB is creating the conditions for the future of emission-free mobility. The first step in this is ABB’s new Terra HP electrical charging staging, which can reload the batteries of electric vehicles in just 15 minutes. 

The market for electric cars will continue increasing in the coming years. The models of tomorrow will have significantly more powerful batteries and thus a greater range. The maths is clear: more electric cars = more charging stations. Vetica developed the product design for ABB’s new Terra HP charging station on the basis of the prevailing standards in the automotive industry. Throughout the entire design process, safety and user-friendliness were of the utmost importance.

Better, faster, further: the ABB Terra HP charges the batteries of electrical vehicles in just 15 minutes

The new Terra HP charging station is designed for public use and has a shatter-proof casing that protects the sensitive components inside. The “window” at the top of the charging station gives surveillance cameras maximum visibility and serves as a kind of traffic light, enabling drivers to see from afar whether the station is occupied or available for use, depending on the colour indicated. ABB has already installed more than 2,000 of these Terra HP charging stations in the United States and Australia. We are therefore looking forward to the next steps on the road to emission-free mobility.
