Wallbox Launches Supernova
Supernova comes with an optimized internal design to make it easy and light to install by integrating multiple, modular elements from Wallbox's award-winning bidirectional charger, Quasar.
FREMONT, CA: Wallbox, the leading energy management company that manufactures smart charging solutions for electric vehicles (EV), declared Supernova, its first fast public charger that provides 65 kW of charging power at half the cost of similar chargers. This is Wallbox's entry into the public charging segment, complementing its existing offerings for both semi-public and residential charging that are currently available in more than 40 countries globally.
Supernova introduces astounding levels of reliability and efficiency into this market segment. It comes with an optimized internal design to make it easy and light to install by integrating multiple, modular elements from Wallbox's award-winning bidirectional charger, Quasar. The product is unique with a modern, ergonomic layout synonymous with the Wallbox brand and its signature hallmarks of design and innovation.
The segment, now valued at $11.7 billion, is expected to grow exponentially in the upcoming years, driven by extensive investment globally to expand public charging networks. Europe is going to install one million public charge points by 2025, and France alone is committing to 100,000 chargers next year, while Germany is planning for one million chargers this decade. In the US, California and New York have declared plans to extend their investment in charging infrastructure, committing millions in funds. California has also declared its plan to ban the sale of gas-powered vehicles in the state beginning in 2035.
"Supernova is our answer to the growing needs of EV users and the cities they live in. We have applied the same development concepts and fundamentals that we used to make Quasar, the world's lightest, smallest and most efficient bidirectional charger. The result is a charger that is exponentially more stable and efficient, easier to install and maintain," stated Eduard Castañeda, co-founder and Chief Product Officer of Wallbox.
