Bosch has announced it will begin selling its Power Max residential electric vehicle charger for under $450 and is designed to work with all electric vehicles.
The Power Max is a 16-amp configuration with a 12-foot cable and will offer 240-volt charging in half the time and at half the price as a Level 2 residential station.
The system will also be available in a faster 30-amp setup with a cord length up to 25 feet. Pricing is key to the Bosch Power Max, which will retail for less than half the cost of other residential charging stations – some cost over $1,000. Bosch was able to cut costs by reducing the length of the cable used for the station.
Also included in the price are permits and inspection, but not installation. The product will come with a three-year warranty and will ship in June.
