A lot of countries especially  in europe are planning to stop production of gasoline cars soon,but some things have to be in place first.

One of them is charging stations ,that’s why some automakers including BMW, Daimler, and the Volkswagen Group, have announced IONITY, a joint partnership to develop and construct such a network in Europe.

IONITY is definitely going to be in a tough competition with Tesla ,which already has super charging stations in Europe.

The group plans to build a High-Power Charging (HPC) network of charging stations along major routes in Germany, Norway, and Austria. Each station will have 350 kW charging points, and the goal is to open 20 stations before the end of 2017, then increase the total number to more than 100 in 2018. By 2020, they hope to have 400 HPC stations in operation.

Wether these charging stations are owned by IONITY or Tesla ,there is no doubt that more charging stations would really do a lot of good.

Here is what the CEO of IONITY ,Michael Hajesch said 

“The first pan-European HPC network plays an essential role in establishing a market for electric vehicles,”

“IONITY will deliver our common goal of providing customers with fast charging and digital payment capability, to facilitate long-distance travel.”

What are your thoughts folks ?,let’s hear from you.
