    Recently we revealed a new concept design for high-powered charging of electric semi-trucks and aircraft. Watch our CEO, Pasquale Romano, unveil it at the Uber Elevate Summit.


    Note: this video is over 5 hours long, however, the link above will start directly at the segment about our reveal. :)

    Flying cars? We're charging them! Here's more on the new 2-MW charger for electric aircraft and semi-trucks that we unveiled. Since 2017, ChargePoint has been the charging partner for Uber’s Elevate initiative, as the two companies explore innovations to help support the launch of a fleet of electric VTOL aircraft within five years. Leveraging Express Plus, our ultra-fast charge platform, we're developing designs specifically for use at skyports where VTOL aircraft will park and fuel as part of their day-to-day activities.

    Just in regards to the topic of "flying cars", I have to agree with elon that it's a rather scary idea. The example he used was, "would you want your neighbor to drive a flying car?". Elon suggested going underground instead. While that goes hand in hand with his boring co., it really isn't that bad of an idea.

    The only flying car I want to participate in is the BFR, flying from continent to continent in under 30mins.
