ABB has been long been on a quest to design and engineer maximum energy efficiency in motors, drives, C/I controls, building and home automation devices and many other products in a portfolio that powered nearly $30 billion in 2022 global sales. But with all the possibilities that may ahead with electric vehicles, it may be the company’s line of EV charging equipment that gets one’s imagination fired up the most about potential of being part of revolutionizing an entire industry – the transportation business.
As electric vehicles become more widely adopted in the auto industry, ABB is using its sponsorship of the FIA Formula E World Championship to promote its capabilities in EV charging. This season, the company doubled down on its commitment to Formula E racing series by providing all teams on the circuit with the EV chargers they used to charge their new Gen 3 race cars.
The 2022-2023 racing circuit is hitting 11 cities around the world, and ABB invited Electrical Wholesaling and EC&M for a behind-the-scenes look at the Southwire Portland E-Prix race in Portland, OR, on June 24.
