Situated at the Mercedes-Benz USA headquarters in Sandy Springs, Georgia, this hub is the initial milestone in a broader plan to establish over 400 charging stations across North America by the end of the decade, representing an investment of more than $1 billion USD.
The Hub is said to be designed to provide a “fast, reliable and premium charging experience” for drivers of all EV brands. Key features include high-speed charging, thanks to the 400kW chargers provided by ChargePoint — some of the fastest in the industry at the time of writing.
Additional benefits of the new Hub include premium amenities, available to all EV drivers, including a luxurious charging lounge, complete with comfortable seating, refreshments, vending machines and restrooms. Beyond this, the Hub also represents sustainable design, with its canopy being made up of solar panels, aimed at generating clean energy and contributing to its carbon-neutral status.
Also integrated is a range of different charging spots, including one for handicap-accessible vehicles and another for larger EVs. Additional stations are planned for strategic locations, including one of America’s favorite emerging gas station chains, Buc-ee’s.
