Delta, a global provider of power and thermal management solutions, has announced a collaboration with the Groupe PSA to foster e-mobility across Europe and beyond. Under the collaboration, Delta was chosen as one of Groupe PSA’s technical partner for electric vehicles (EV) chargers as it offers a complete range of AC and DC charging solutions capable of meeting the wide range of requirements of various charging scenarios, as well as the evolving needs of dealers and EV drivers.

Delta’s EV charging infrastructure solutions will be made available via the Group’s specially selected EV charger installation partner list. Under the initiative, Groupe PSA-approved charging infrastructure solutions will be available as an accessory for single-family homes and multi-family complexes across all 27 EU states, and with the possibility to expand to other countries around the world.

Commenting on Groupe PSA’s decision to standardise on Delta’s range of AC and DC chargers, Vincent Lin, senior director of e-Mobility & Smart Energy Solutions business development, Delta EMEA, states, “Delta is proud to be associated with this collaboration which is set to bring simplified EV charging to many more Groupe PSA customers. As the EV revolution accelerates across Europe, the Groupe PSA is setting a trend in helping to bring the benefits of EVs to many more customers, through an extensive range of products. Its latest initiative will further boost the popularity of its EVs, by making charging easy and convenient for all of its customers.”

As a provider of smart green solutions leveraging its high-efficiency power electronics and system integration expertise, Delta has developed a comprehensive range of highly versatile AC and DC EV charging solutions with power output up to 200 kW as well as energy conversion efficiency as high as 96%. The compact size and compatibility with all charging standards for operational efficiency facilitate an optimised charging experience.

These features were decisive factors in Groupe PSA’s selection of Delta as a technical partner for e-mobility. Solid industrial excellence, the scalability of its production capacity, and Delta’s ability to adapt to its needs in terms of volumes and product specifications while meeting the high-quality standard and stable supply chain management were also strengthens Groupe PSA identified in Delta.

The collaboration with Delta underpins Groupe PSA’s strategy to increase the number of EV chargers available to their customers, while delivering a single point of contact, one-stop-shop EV solution. An online audit will be available for customers to help confirm the feasibility of the installation, before the most suitable charger from Delta is installed by qualified experts. To further optimise the customer experience, they will be supported by a dedicated call centre and after-sales services.

With different power ratings, interfaces, OCPP protocol support, and authorisation management, Delta’s EV chargers are suitable for all charging sites and applications, providing better features for the increasing number of EV drivers.
