ComfortDelGro will roll out a faster direct current (DC) charger service for cabbies and electric vehicle (EV) owners in Singapore from 1 July, according to a press release.

The Delta Ultra Fast Charger is said to be Singapore's fastest public commercial DC charger at 100kW power output. It has double the power output of all other commercial DC charging stations in the market, and is able to shave close to 10 minutes off the time it takes to fully charge a vehicle.

The charger comes with connectors, cables and power modules that can be upgraded on location. Its system firmware updates can also be done remotely.

The charging station located in ComfortDelGro Engineering's Loyang branch can charge up to two vehicles at any one time. If two EVs are being charged at the same time, the charging station's power output is at least 50kW, enabling each EV to be fully charged in 30 minutes.

The superfast service will be made available to all ComfortDelGro EV taxis and private EV car owners through global EV charging software and solutions provider, Greenlots.

Drivers will need to apply for a special access pass directly with ComfortDelGro Engineering to gain entry into the company's premises at Braddell and Loyang. Meanwhile, cabbies driving the fully-electric Hyundai Ioniq and Kona taxis do not require the access pass.
