Revel will open five new fast-charging ‘Superhubs’ in New York City, adding a total of 136 public charging kiosks to New York’s EV infrastructure. The five fast charging stations will be located in Maspeth, Port Morris, South Williamsburg, Lower East Side and Red Hook.
Five new fast charging ‘Superhubs’ will be unlocked around the clock and accessible to all makes of electric vehicles. To cater for all brands, the fast charger comes with CHAdeMO, CCS1, and Tesla charging plugs.
Ultra-fast charging is capable of charging electric vehicles within 10-20 minutes. Revel has prepared an interactive digital charging map of New York City on their website.
“The only way mass EV adoption will ever happen in New York City is if the charging infrastructure is there to support it,” said Revel CEO & Co-Founder Frank Reig. “We need high-volume, public sites in the neighbourhoods where people actually live and work, and that’s exactly what Revel is delivering with our growing Superhub network. This is the biggest fast charging expansion our city has ever seen, and it’s a huge step toward making our EV transition a reality.”
The charging business for Revel is new for the New York-based company. Revel first entered the world of sustainable mobility with its electric scooter sharing program in 2019.
Following the deaths of two New York motorists in 2020, the company suspended service and launched a fleet of electric taxis. Revel raised $126 million in early 2022 through a Series B round led by BlackRock.
