The diesel door scandal of Volkswagen is expected to give birth to the largest electric vehicle charging network in the United States, but this plan has at least now suffered a slight impact. According to reports, a “potential security issue” forced the Volkswagen Group's “Electrify America” to temporarily shut down most of its high-power charging services.
In a press release, the company did not specify what the actual safety issue was, but said that it affected the 150-350 kW electric vehicle charging device using Huber+Suhner liquid-cooled cable, the company Very cautious considerations have taken the action of suspending the charging service, and the company has also announced another list, including more than 80 electric vehicle charging stations that continue to open normally.
“The safety of our customers is our top priority,” the CEO of Electrification USA wrote in a statement.
Electrification USA plans to install 2,000 charging piles nationwide by June of this year. The company installed the first ultra-high-speed 350 kW charging pile in California last month.
