LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CES, LVCC, North Hall - 5703 -- Wallbox, a smart charging company and leading manufacturer of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in Europe, today announced the U.S. introduction of Quasar, the world’s first bidirectional EV charger for the home. Quasar not only charges EVs but can also send electricity back to the grid or even power a home. Wallbox will also showcase its latest products ahead of its forthcoming United States launch in 2020.

“Quasar is the first charger for the home to allow bidirectional charging. This will help us to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, which is essential because our energy consumption as a society increases every day,” said Enric Asunción, Co-Founder and CEO of Wallbox. “To provide a sustainable future, we have to ensure the energy we use is clean. As bidirectional charging offers us the possibility to store energy from renewable sources for later use, it will help us to move towards this future.”

Quasar’s Key Features and Benefits

“At Wallbox, we believe cutting-edge technology should be simple, user-friendly, and intuitive. We work hard at packing in intelligent and cutting-edge features while maintaining a smart and compact look,” said Eduard Castañeda Mañe, Wallbox CTO. “Quasar is a result of breakthrough innovations in materials science in order to get a much higher power in a smaller size. We also have special advances in areas like our inverter in order to make it so efficient in such a small area.”

Wallbox’s Extensive Global Smart Charger Product Line
The company will also demonstrate its full product lineup including:
