Its a $9-million facility, and according to VW, "The 50-space charging station is located at VWGoA’s global test facility in Maricopa, AZ—one of two worldwide, Group-wide hot-weather test facilities—and will allow the charging of EVs in weather conditions up to 120 degrees. "

Best of all, it offers a wide range of charging options:

The station is ready for 50 cars and currently offers 25 DC fast chargers (including the 150 kW and 350 kW ultra-fast chargers), as well as 10 AC Level 2 charging stations to simulate home/work charging. There is space for more equipment. Inductive charging pads will be installed in the future.

DC chargers are equipped with three standard connector types:

  • two versions of the CCS standard:
    CCS1 for North America and a few other countries
    CCS2 for Europe and most of the rest of the world, aside from North America, China and Japan,
  • as well as the Chinese GB/T plug. No CHAdeMO it seems.
The cool thing about the station is that 16 stalls have a remote-controlled canopy to simulate full sun and shaded conditions. There is also a small building for engineers and test drivers.

Anyone know if this huge charging station facility is open to the public? Or is it behind the gates of the VW test facility? It would be useful if they places these chargers just outside the entrance so others can use them.
