Taking a step towards sustainable transportation, LG Electronics has officially opened its first Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations in Texas, USA. The initiative aligns with LG’s commitment to environmental responsibility and the growing demand for electric mobility solutions.
In the first half of 2024, the business plans to start generating 175kW fast chargers, and it has already started assembling 11kW home-style chargers there. According to LG, it intends to construct 350kW ultra-fast chargers this year that are intended for “commercial travel and long-distance transportation.”
The AC wallbox may be installed immediately on a wall or a column, and it comes with a Type 1 socket, as the business stated in November. “You may get the DC chargers with either a NACS or CCS1 connector.” However, it was unclear at the time where LG would produce the chargers. The only thing that was certain was that it had to be someplace in the United States; in order for government money for infrastructure projects to be available, the gadgets needed to be mostly made in the country.
The LG EV charger manufacturing plant in the US represents a pivotal step in advancing the adoption of electric vehicles across North America. The plant is equipped with the latest technology, ensuring the production of high-quality charging solutions to meet the increasing demand for sustainable transportation options.
Jang Ik-hwan, president of LG Business Solutions Company, states, “We will be able to actively respond to the rapidly growing demand for EV infrastructure in the US by establishing our EV charger production factory in Texas.” “LG is committed to providing customers with EV charging solutions that are dependable and integrate cutting-edge control systems with efficient charger units.”
LG Electronics’ commitment to sustainability extends beyond manufacturing, with a focus on creating a comprehensive EV charging infrastructure. The newly inaugurated charging stations in Texas offer cutting-edge technology, ensuring quick and reliable charging for electric vehicles, ultimately promoting widespread adoption.
As the global shift towards electric mobility continues, LG Electronics’ investment in EV charging infrastructure reinforces its position as a key player in the sustainable transportation sector. The move aligns with the growing awareness and demand for eco-friendly solutions, positioning LG as a frontrunner in the race towards a greener future.
