FLO’s new Ultra DC fast chargers can charge EVs to 80% in 15 minutes


The first FLO Ultra DC fast chargers are rolling off the assembly line at the company’s Auburn Hills, Michigan, factory – and they’re pretty powerful.

The 320 kW FLO Ultra DC fast chargers feature a dual-port power configuration. The EV charging company designed them to comply with the federal government’s National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program (NEVI) standards and the Buy America Act, including 98% uptime. They can charge most EVs to 80% in just 15 minutes.

The FLO Ultra DC fast chargers feature the new FLO motorized cable management system. The EZLift system is designed to keep cables off the ground and provide extended reach, allowing the cable to reach EVs no matter where the port is located. The motorized system makes the cables feel lighter and easier to maneuver.

Martine St-Onge, FLO’s chief manufacturing operations officer, said, “As we ramp up production, we look forward to making it more accessible to own and drive EVs by bringing our FLO Ultra charger to more locations across North America.”

Update: On June 11, FLO announced that it had secured $136 million in long-term capital, principally from a Series E equity financing led by Export Development Canada (EDC). It will use the money to accelerate the deployment of its EV chargers and charging network.

A new Pew Research Center analysis released today found that 64% of US adults now live within two miles of a public EV charger – and those who live close to one are more likely to consider purchasing an EV. Over 95% of Americans now live in a county with at least one public EV charging station.
