This marks the product's official launch onto the North American market. The Supernova 180 is Wallbox’s third-generation DC fast EV charger designed exclusively for North America, following the successful rollout of The Supernova 60 and Supernova 150 in Europe.

Launched in Europe in 2022, Wallbox has sold over 2,000 Supernovas globally, contributing to over 150,000 charging sessions, with industry leading reliability and uptime.

The Supernova 180 can deliver up to 180 kW of charging power, meaning it can add 100 miles of range in under 10 minutes. Production of Wallbox’s latest fast charger is expected to begin this month.

Supernova’s innovative six module design allows for versatile deployment across various locations, making it an ideal choice for public charging infrastructure. This design concept enables easy, safe, and cheaper installation, which can be safely managed with either a forklift or crane. In addition, the Supernova 180 offers unparalleled service access, with entry points on all four vertical sides of the charger.

The Supernova 180 design, which incorporates six 30kW power modules, solves one of the biggest pain points of the EV market - uptime. In the unlikely event that one of the six modules fails, the charger will continue to charge an EV using the remaining five modules, only slightly reducing the power output.

Wallbox uses a flexible module system for its DC fast chargers to ensure they can be upgraded easily as the EV market matures, and driver needs change. While most EVs on the market today have limited charging capacity, next generation EVs will increasingly have the capacity to charge at up to 180kW. The Supernova 180 ensures that EV charging sites can be seamlessly upgraded from 60 kW to 120 kW or 180 kW, to meet market and site demands. Allowing for future power upgrades ensures EV sites are future-proofed, while reducing upfront investment during their initial rollout.

Each Supernova 180 unit can charge two EVs simultaneously, commonly referred to as split charging. Its intelligent power redistribution ensures the most efficient use of the available energy, maximising the charger's utility and ROI while enhancing the overall charging experience.

Supernova features several physical features for improved customer experience including effortless cable handling through its cable management system; numerous payment options, including credit card and RFID; an interactive light system; and a robust 10'' sunlight-readable colour screen, with an IK10 rating to ensure users can interact with a reliable and easy to read screen. The charger also boasts an intuitive user interface, ensuring the charging experience is user centric and intuitive for an enhanced overall experience.

The Supernova 180 has broad EV compatibility and will be available with both CCS1 and NACS connectors over the course of 2024.
