 Schunk Smart Charging Underbody Charger for electric cars

Underbody Charger

With the development of the underbody solution, Schunk Transit Systems enables charging both at a public charging station and in the garage at home. No more charging cable and plug - the car is positioned exactly above the charging station and charged autonomously. This is made possible by a charging station that can be retracted into the roadway, the interface built into the vehicle floor, and the extremely high power transmission.

Charging Time: within a few minutes
Charging Power: up to 1 MW in the public area and according to the limitation of the house connection in the private area
Set-Up Principle: charging station retractable into the road + interface built into the vehicle floor
Charging Concept: Opportunity Charging, Flash Charging and Depot Charging


With the Underbody Charger Schunk is presenting a prototype of the e-charging station of the future, which will allow the safe, efficient, comfortable and autonomous recharging of various vehicle types within a few minutes. This will be possible by a retractable recharging system located in the driveway and, the docking module built in the vehicle underbody as well as extremely high power transfer. Hence, automatic recharging can be shortened to a few minutes, even in completely depleted batteries, which allows for easy integration into the everyday use of vehicles.

You benefit from these advantages:

  • A breakthrough efficient and convenient charging experience
  • Fully automated vehicle charging within a few minutes
  • High parking tolerance
  • Vehicle positioning and recognition system
  • Suited for private and public use
