Gravity Releases Universal EV Charging ‘Trees’

The ‘trees’ require no utility upgrades and are capable of providing 200 miles of range in either 13 minutes (200kW) or 5 minutes (500kW).

Gravity has released a new universal on-street mounting and cable system, dubbed “DEAP Trees,” for its 200kW and 500kW Distributed Energy Access Points (DEAPs). Gravity said it is striving to develop a network of on-street DEAP charging more expansive than Tesla’s current Supercharger network.

Gravity’s engineers, in collaboration with design firm Rangr Studio, took on the challenge of solving frictions in curbside charging today. Each Gravity universal DEAP Tree has a hinged swing arm holding a cable that pivots down when charging begins, allowing it to reach the port of every make and model. When charging is completed, the arm raises automatically and the EV connector latches back onto the pole and out of sight.
