Ionity is a joint venture between Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company, BMW Group and the Volkswagen Group with Porsche AG, that aims to increase the feasibility and adoption of EVs by establishing convenient High-Power Charging (HPC) sites across the continent. Brenner is the third of 20 stations to be launched in Italy, helping to make long-distance EV driving in Italy possible.
Joined by Maximillian Wild, Centre Manager of l’Outlet Center Brennero, the opening ceremony marked a significant step toward the future of mobility in Italy. With the latest generation of electric vehicles providing much-improved performance, efficiency and comfort, the new network will ease range anxiety for existing and potential EV owners.
Ionity’s network will establish 2400 chargers across Europe by 2020, enabling hassle-free pan-European EV travel. With ultra-fast charging times and the selection of convenient motorway locations, the network will make long distance journeys far more viable than much slower 50kW alternatives. The 350kW Italian charging network is future-proofed, delivering infrastructure capable of charging times as low as 20 minutes, making e-mobility a convenient, reliable and everyday experience.
For all of its Italian stations, Ionity’s High-Power Chargers will provide every charge point with 100 percent renewable energy, greatly reducing the environmental impact of a journey and providing peace of mind for environmentally conscious drivers.
“Close collaboration with site partners like l’Outlet Center Brennero has enabled Ionity to provide significant high power charging capacity on one of Europe’s most important transit routes. Ionity’s network is finally giving EVs in Italy the kind of charging speeds their owners want.”
