the world’s first mass-produced charging robot 100% powered by green electricity
Envision Group, a world-leading green technology company, launched “Mochi”, the world’s first mass-produced, mobile smart charging robot that is a hundred percent powered by green electricity. The new charging device was unveiled at Envision’s Net Zero Day in Shanghai [April 23, 2021], and will be commercially available starting in June this year.
Mochi can be deployed in many locations and will automatically find and charge EVs, which saves time and hassle for the drivers. As more EVs hit the road, Mochi will provide a flexible solution to help meet this increasing demand for charging stations.
Mochi operates on Envision Group’s EnOSTM intelligent operating system, which connects and manages over 200GW of renewable energy assets globally. The system provides Mochi with one hundred percent access to green electricity, allowing EVs, charged by Mochi, to offer passengers a truly green ride.
Mochi is compatible with most mainstream EVs on the market. It is powered by Envision’s AESC vehicle-security-level batteries and has a capacity of 70 kWh with a 42 kW power output. Mochi can charge an EV in just 2 hours for a cruising range up to 600km.
Mochi is compact, flexible, and equipped with precise location-sensing technology, allowing it to travel with centimetre-level navigation accuracy. When encountering obstacles, Mochi can stop safely within 0.1 second from its full speed of 1m/s, which guarantees safety. The smart charging robot is designed by IDEO, a global design company, and GFG, an Italian automotive design company.
EV drivers can subscribe to the service through a Mochi App. After receiving an instruction, Mochi will set up a smart charging plan, locate the EV, and start charging independently. During charging, Envision’s EnOSTM system will conduct real-time monitoring on the EV battery, along with a comprehensive health examination to ensure its safety.
