AUBURN HILLS — FLO, an electric vehicle (EV) charging company and smart charging solutions provider, has announced FLO Ultra DC fast chargers. It will come off the assembly line at FLO’s Auburn Hills, Michigan facility.

“With 42 per cent of users accessing DC fast chargers at least once a month and 60 per cent depending on them for longer, multi-city trips, it’s evident that fast charging options are vital to supporting the electric transition,” said Louis Tremblay, FLO president and CEO.

“At FLO, we’re committed to meeting this critical need by providing robust, reliable fast charging solutions like the FLO Ultra charger. Our mission is to ensure that drivers have the power they need, whenever and wherever they need it, to confidently drive an EV.”

The FLO Ultra charger can charge most EVs to 80 per cent in 15 minutes using a dual-port 320kW power configuration. Designed to comply with the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program’s (NEVI) standards and the Buy America Act, these chargers support federal initiatives to build a cohesive, nationwide network of EV charging stations.


“The FLO Ultra charger is set to redefine what drivers expect from public charging stations with powerful charging and versatile design,” added Martine St-Onge, FLO’s Chief Manufacturing Operations Officer. “As we ramp up production, we look forward to making it more accessible to own and drive EVs by bringing our FLO Ultra charger to more locations across North America.”

The FLO Ultra charger features the new FLO motorized cable management system. The EZLift system is designed to keep cables off the ground and provide extended reach allowing the cable to reach EVs regardless of vehicle port placement. Most importantly, the motorized system makes the cables feel lighter and easier to maneuver, reducing strain on users.

“Today, we celebrate not just the technological innovation that FLO Ultra chargers represent, but also the hard work and dedication of our team here in Michigan,” St-Onge added.
