New fast charging station for electric cars opens at Valley Fair

You can already buy a Tiffany bracelet, have a delicious meal at Din Tai Fung or shop for Apple’s latest at the Westfield Valley Fair. Now you can also charge your electric vehicle in record time while shopping.

Electrify America opened its 200th ultra-fast charging station in Silicon Valley Mall last week, with 14 chargers under solar panels in the northern parking lot along Forest Avenue. The Virginia-based company has been working on Westfield properties with plans to build stations at 17 of the mall giant’s locations. The “first charge” event on November 10 included the Westfield Valley Fair’s Volkswagen ID4 safety vehicle, the Swedish EV Polestar and the luxury brand Lucid, both of which have showrooms inside the Valley Fair. The new Electrify America chargers join 44 ChargePoint stations located in Valley Fair’s garages.

One benefit of using the Electrify America chargers seems to be that drivers who receive a charge can also have food delivered to their vehicle from select Valley Fair restaurants. What is it like for a futuristic setback to the old car hop drive-ins?
