Bosch Power Max EV residential charging station to cost below $450

Article by Anita Panait, on May 11, 2013

Bosch Automotive Service Solutions will start selling the Bosch Power Max electric-vehicle residential charging station for a retail price of under $450.The charging station comes with a 16-amp configuration and a 12-foot cable, offering 2,400-volt charging in half the time and at half the price as a Level 2 residential charging station, according to Tanvir Arfi, president of Bosch Automotive Service Solutions.

Bosch Automotive Service Solutions is the new name for the SPX Service Solutions that Robert Bosch GmbH acquired in 2012 for $1.15 billion. SPX has sold around 16,000 previous recharging stations and performed about 6,000 installations. The Bosch Power Max is designed to work with all electric vehicles. It is also available in a faster 30-amp configuration, with cord length of up to 25 feet.

While other residential charging stations are priced at around $1000 or more, the Bosch Power Max costs only half the price. According to Arfi, they managed to save costs by trimming the length of the cable used by the station.

He said that they realized that most of the chargers have cable lengths that are much longer than needed. While permits and inspection are included in the price, a buyer needs to pay more for the installation of the Bosch Power Max. This product has a three-year warranty. Interested buyers could now order Bosch Power Max Bosch, with shipments to commence in June.
