Wallbox opens its first North American manufacturing facility in Texas.

The new Wallbox manufacturing facility in Texas will also produce a hyperfast 400 kW DC charger called Hypernova.

EV charger manufacturer and provider Wallbox has opened its first North American manufacturing facility in Arlington, Texas. The State-of-the-art facility will produce over 250,000 EV chargers in 2022 and over one million in 2030.

The factory is spread across a 130,000 square foot area and will manufacture all of the company’s chargers, including residential charging, bidirectional charging, and hyperfast highway corridor charging.

Wallbox also unveiled its hyperfast 400 kW DC charger called Hypernova. The charger is ideal for highway corridors and is capable of adding up to 100 miles of range in just five minutes of charging. The production of Hypernova is expected to start in 2023.

Hypernova has a centralized power system that can feed one or multiple dispenser units. The innovative design allows for a wide variety of configurations that can be upgraded over time, including the addition of more power modules or dispenser units to the installation, thereby allowing charging services operators and fleets to match current and future demand. It offers a seamless user experience with its compact size, integrated cable management system, interactive lighting system, and sunlight-readable touchscreen.

The Arlington facility is now producing Pulsar Plus, Wallbox’s global best-selling smart home EV charger that is compatible with all EVs. This new facility complements Wallbox’s existing operations and services in North America, including its North American headquarters in Mountain View, California, and warehouses in Burlington, North Carolina, and Bloomington, California. It is also Wallbox’s fourth manufacturing facility worldwide.

Enric Asunción, CEO of Wallbox, said: Today only 3% of the chargers required globally for the next decade have been installed, showing the magnitude of the need for innovative and reliable charging solutions. Bringing Wallbox’s manufacturing capabilities to the U.S. significantly bolsters our ability to meet U.S. needs, deliver to public funding programs and drive the energy transition.
