Merrick Manor Embraces Movement Toward Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles continue to gain momentum in the auto world, a trend that forward-thinking The Astor Companies had in mind when conceiving Coral Gables luxury residential project Merrick Manor.

While Tesla gets the lion’s share of media attention, traditional automakers are also getting in the electric vehicle game. Ford recently announced plans to invest $11 billion into electric vehicle production by 2022 and will have 40 hybrid and electric vehicles in its collection. Other auto giants are expected to follow suit in the coming years.

Knowing this, the 10-story, 227-residence Merrick Manor will be equipped with rapid charging stations for all kinds of electric vehicles. The present standard for how long it takes to rapid charge an electric vehicle to 80 percent capacity is 30 minutes, but new technologies are being introduced to bring the charge time down to 10 minutes – in line with how long it takes to fill a tank at a gas station. More information about the types of charging stations can be found here.

Located at 301 Altara Avenue, Merrick Manor is the premier new development in Coral Gables. The project is located just steps away from the luxurious Shops at Merrick Park.
