Barcelona, Spain–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wallbox, a leading global provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging and power management solutions, has received the IF Design Award for its first public fast charger, Supernova. IF is one of the most prestigious design awards in the world. The jury was made up of 132 members from 20 different countries.
Supernova is the first public charger developed by the company. Following the lines of the other Wallbox products, it has a subtle and minimalist design that integrates it very discreetly into public spaces. At the operational level, the Supernova charger exhibits unprecedented levels of efficiency and operational stability in the market for electric vehicle charging solutions. This device is made up of 6 modules that work together to provide maximum power while maintaining their operating independence. In addition, this modular and lightweight assembly facilitates transport and installation and requires very little maintenance.
Supernova has a charging speed of 60 kW. In terms of performance, it can provide 100 km of range for an electric vehicle in less than 15 minutes, making it the ideal charging solution for public and semi-public places (for example, in a restaurant). It is the first public charger launched by Wallbox and completes a portfolio that already includes home and semi-public charging solutions.
“We believe that everyone should have access to good design, so design has always been a key pillar in the development of our products while facilitating the transition to zero-emission mobility,” said Eduard Castañeda, Chief Product and co-founder of Wallbox.
This is the second award received by Supernova, which has also won the Good Design Award (previously received by Quasar, the world’s first two-way charger for home use). Wallbox has already won three of the most prestigious design awards in the world. The first was the Red Dot award for the semi-public copper charger.
