A2 Testing at Applus+ Idiada

28th Jun 2019 1 Min Read

It’s been nearly a year since the tech team started the development of the Kønnect 2.0 platform.

And the last few months at Andersen have been crazy busy.

We’ve just completed a 2-day intensive compatibility test program with a major global car manufacturer at Applus+ IDIADA.

IDIADA is an amazingly impressive independent engineering test lab and vehicle development center just south of Barcelona, Spain. It comes complete with a 7km high-speed bowl that numerous car manufacturers use to test, improve, and push their vehicles to their limit.

I‘ve just spent 2 days in their test labs working with a major manufacturer vehicles team. It was good to watch them put the A2 under numerous compatibility, safety, and extreme reliability tests.

I’m thrilled to report that the Kønnect 2.0 controller has successfully passed all the stringent compliance tests.

As a result, it’s a really important milestone for us because it certifies that our charging products meet the international charge compatibility standards.
