Electric vehicle charging stations are getting faster all the time. While not yet quite as fast as pumping gas, they’re getting close.

In fact, some of the newest stations can charge enough to provide 200 miles of vehicle driving range in just 10 minutes.

A partnership between shopping, dining, entertainment company Simon and charging station provider Electrify America is bringing some of these super-fast chargers to California.

Under the deal, Simon is using its San Francisco Premium Outlets as California’s first location for electric vehicle (EV) charging systems featuring blindingly fast recharging speeds up to 350 kilowatts (kW) from Electrify America.

Super Fast Charging

As part of its ongoing sustainability strategy, Simon teamed with Electrify America to open 10 DC fast chargers at San Francisco Premium Outlets today for public use.

The charging site features eight 150 kW chargers and two 350 kW chargers.  The 350 kW chargers are capable of recharging an electric vehicle at 20 miles a minute providing 200 miles of vehicle driving range in just 10 minutes.

The 10 Electrify America chargers are co-located with 20 Tesla Superchargers making San Francisco Premium Outlets one of the nation’s largest multi-standard fast charging sites.

In addition to San Francisco Premium Outlets, Electrify America will install charging systems at Simon locations nationwide including 17 centers in California, with 95 additional chargers.
