BMW And Mercedes-Benz Join Forces To Launch A New Charging Network In China



Flagship M-badged BMW M760e xDrive And i7 M70 Electric Officially Coming In 2023 - autojosh

BMW and Mercedes-Benz have reached an agreement over a 50:50 joint venture in China that will focus on building a fast and premium charging network in the country. The first charging stations will be operational in 2024, and the entire network should be ready by 2026.

The two German automakers see about 1,000 high-power charging points, with around 7,000 charging points popping up in China, and they will be available to the broad public, not just Mercedes and BMW owners. The joint venture aims to bring reliable, fast, convenient, and tailor-made charging solutions to the Chinese market for everyone.

However, the press release says BMW and Mercedes EV owners will get exclusive features such as plug and charge service, probably through some sort of subscription that will be managed from the car itself.

The charging points will draw power from renewable energy sources where possible to bring down emissions and deliver an eco-friendly charging experience. The duo also believes it can deliver an unmatched charging experience thanks to its deep understanding of how the Chinese EV market works.
