GE today introduced the GE WattStation, an electric vehicle (EV) charger designed to help accelerate the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles. GE says the WattStation significantly decreases time needed for vehicle charging and, using smart grid technology, allows utility companies to manage the impact of electric vehicles on the local and regional grids.
Designed by artist and industrial designer Yves Behar the WattStation is designed for ease of use and fast charging. It will be commercially available globally in 2011; GE will unveil a specialized home version of the charger later this year.
