The electric car industry is growing, and the need for electrical energy support is getting higher, including the battery charging network. To accommodate the growing demand, the Hyundai Group has joined forces with Ionity, a provider of electric car battery charging networks.
Joining Ionity, which was founded by major manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Porsche, Volkswagen and Audi, Hyundai can expand its battery charging network for its customers, along the highways in Europe.
The IONITY charging network itself uses the European CCS (Combined Charging System) charging standard, where the network uses 100% renewable energy. That way, every vehicle that is charged will be emission free and CO2 neutral.
“Today, we are part of one of the most comprehensive charging infrastructure networks in Europe. And investing in Ionity will bring real convenience and benefits, especially for consumers,” said Thomas Schemera, Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of the Product Division at the Hyundai Motor Group. .
IONITY builds and operates a high charging network (HPC) along European highways, using state-of-the-art technology with a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. On average, each IONITY charging station consists of four charging points.
