Designed for fleets, the HyperCharger is scalable from 200kW to 1MW and allows fast charging of plug-in hybrid and electric buses and large trucks. Eaton said it hopes the product will make it easier for governments and companies to supply power for electrically-powered vehicles.

Michael Dadian, product line manager, Electrical Transportation Infrastructure, said: ‘Eaton has a long history of developing electrical and hybrid power systems for trucks and buses. Our new HyperCharger is the latest example Eaton’s leadership in building a charging infrastructure across North America and helping to set the stage for mass adoption of EVs.’
