An agreement that means that fast charging for long journeys will be cheaper. Through the collaboration with Plugsurfing, those who drive an XC40 Or Poelstar 2 will this summer be able to halve their costs at an Ionity station.
For those who drive an electric car on long journeys, it is important to be aware. The huge price differences that prevail on fast charging can be really annoying and Ionity stands for a clear example. The charging chain has a price of SEK 8.70 / kWh, but the conglomerate of brands that own the company has separate agreements, which cuts the cost significantly.
Now Volvo and Polestar can also join the discount gang. This is because through the charging platform Plugsurfing they have negotiated a good deal. From 1 July, those who drive an XC40 (in the future also C40) and Polestar 2 will instead of 8.70 only pay SEK 3.53 / kWh for the Ionity chargers. And this price applies to all of the charging chain’s 340 stations around Europe.
– This collaboration is a first step in our global ambition to help our customers of Recharge cars to travel quickly at a much lower charging cost, no matter where they are, says Oliver Loedel, responsible for the ecosystems around electrification at Volvo Cars, in a statement.
A news that comes a little later this year is that Volvo also updates its mobile app, which then goes from being a car app to what is described as a “consolidated digital charging platform.” Then it must have integrated functions such as navigation to charging stations, remote control of charging, charging notices and payments.Things that will make it easier and more convenient to be an electric car owner.
