It is predicted that by 2040, between 340 and 490 million chargers are needed globally, and that this figure will be dominated by home chargers, representing 82 percent of all EV charging installations.

The Terra Home is intended to usher in the next generation of consumer choice for residential EV charging. It’s unveiling follows a survey commissioned by ABB which found that sustainability ranks among drivers most important motivations. 90 percent of those surveyed said they felt a personal responsibility to make choices to help protect the planet for future generations.

This was reflected in the 86 percent of respondents who confirmed that they will be taking action to reduce their travel emissions for the year ahead. Making the switch to an electric car ranked as one of the top eco-friendly changes being considered, alongside reducing private vehicle usage, and opting to increase the use of public transport.

“As we mark the start of yet another pivotal year in our drive to enable a low-carbon society, the survey results demonstrate that drivers are ready and willing to make the journey alongside us” said Leon van de Pas, SVP for the Destination charging business line at ABB E-mobility. “Offering unprecedented user choice, the new Terra Home provides the flexibility for an even greater number of people to simply and stylishly embrace the transition to electric mobility.”

With the ability to automatically prioritise electricity from renewable domestic sources, such as solar, the Terra Home is intended to appeal to more than half of respondents (54 percent) who reported that they would be more likely to use an EV if they could ensure the electricity powering it had been generated renewably.

The Terra Home utilises a minimalistic design and incorporates intelligent features such as Plug N Charge, which enable instant and automatic recognition between car and charger, making charging authorisation completely seamless. In addition, interactive lighting features indicate the state of the charging session, while notifications on charging status are easily accessible on the ABB E-mobility charger app3, which can also be used to authenticate a charge, ensuring that the owner alone can connect to their Terra Home.

The cloud connection between the Terra Home and ABB E-mobility enables an experienced team to remotely service the charger quickly and efficiently, while remote firmware updates will ensure a futureproof experience, with users always benefitting from the latest charging features.
