IONITY has the largest network of high-performance charging stations in Europe, available to most electric vehicles. This joint venture is already expanding its plans for further expansion. By 2025, the number of charging stations is expected to increase from the current 400 to more than 1,000. This will result in an increase in the number of chargers by approximately 7,000 units, which is almost five times more than the current 1,500.
The IONITY network uses a European charging standard, the Combined Charging System (CCS). The technology (800 V) of these charging stations means that the network can be used to charge the Porsche Tycan up to its full potential of 270 kW. By using the Porsche Charging Service, Tycan drivers have the advantage of standardized and significantly reduced prices at IONITY fast charging stations; currently 0.33 EUR per KWh.
IONITY shareholders are, for now, the BMW Group, Mercedes-Benz AG, Ford Motor Company, Hyundai Motors and KIA, the Volkswagen Group including Audi and Porsche and soon the investment company Blackrock.
IONITY Strategy 2.0: a larger network that offers a significantly higher level of usability
In addition to European highways, IONITY charging stations will be built near the capitals and along busy highways. These future locations will be covered by 6 to 12 charging stations. In addition, the existing stations along the roads with a high need for charging will be equipped with additional chargers.
As an integral part of the leading Oasis concept, IONITY aims to significantly improve overall amenities and services. To succeed in this, the company intends to provide adequate land areas to set up filling parks with accompanying catering services and related stores.
Porsche Charging Service with almost 200,000 special chargers
Porsche Charging Service provides drivers with access to charging stations owned by various providers including IONITY. There are currently almost 200,000 connected chargers in Europe, deployed in 20 countries. Among them, approximately 6,500 chargers with a charging capacity of more than 50 kW DC have been installed. Central payment is made through Porsche. In addition to the existing IONITY network, Porsche plans to set up its own fast charging stations along the most important transport routes in Europe.
Through the Porsche Destination Charging program, customers can charge their electric or plug-in hybrid Porsche models for free at the most popular locations. The program currently provides more than 2,700 AC chargers in more than 70 countries, including select hotels, restaurants, airports, shopping malls, sports clubs and marinas. Further expansion of the network is in full swing.
