Video Interview: Manuel Fernandes, Tritium.
The idea for this charger from Down Under came from Better Place. And while the latter has gone bankrupt, the company Tritium and its stylish DC charging station Veefil are just getting started. Tritium’s European Representative Manuel Fernandes told electrive.com at the Hanover Trade Fair that the design is only one ace up the company’s sleeve. Others include the small size and low weight due to a “unique liquid cooling technology.” The charger has already been installed in the U.S. and company now eyes Europe and Asia as their next markets. One reason the company is focusing on abroad is that “Australia has not yet picking up on electric mobility like the other continents,” says Fernandes. At least for now, since the company hopes that if a charger from Australia can become popular, it can push EV sales there as well.
