Stoccarda, Germania. 29 Novembre 2016. BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company e il Gruppo Volkswagen con Audi e Porsche hanno firmato un protocollo d’intesa per dar vita alla più potente rete di ricarica in Europa. L’obiettivo è la rapida costruzione di un considerevole numero di stazioni per consentire ai conducenti di vetture elettriche di affrontare tragitti a lungo raggio.

Ciò rappresenterà un passo importante nell’agevolare l’adozione di veicoli elettrici da parte dei Clienti del mercato di massa.

La rete di ricarica ultraveloce e a potenza elevata, con livelli di potenza fino a 350 kW, permetterà una ricarica più rapida rispetto al sistema più potente attualmente disponibile.

L’inizio dei lavori è previsto per il 2017, e il target iniziale comprende circa 400 siti in Europa.

Entro il 2020 i Clienti dovrebbero avere accesso a migliaia di punti di ricarica a potenza elevata.

L’obiettivo è consentire viaggi a lungo raggio attraverso una rete aperta di stazioni di ricarica lungo le autostrade e le principali arterie, cosa finora impossibile per la maggior parte dei conducenti di auto elettriche. Ci si attende che il momento della ricarica si evolverà fino a essere comparabile a una pausa per il rifornimento presso i convenzionali distributori di carburante.

La rete si baserà sulla tecnologia del Sistema di ricarica combinata (CCS). L’infrastruttura prevista amplia gli standard tecnici attuali per la ricarica AC e DC dei veicoli elettrici, portandoli a un nuovo livello di capacità per la ricarica rapida DC con potenze fino a 350 kW. Alle vetture elettriche progettate per accogliere tale potenza basterà una frazione del tempo impiegato dalle BEV attuali per ricaricarsi in modo indipendente. La rete sarà sviluppata con l’intento di servire tutti i veicoli equipaggiati con il CCS, in modo da agevolare l’adozione di vetture elettriche in Europa.

BMW Group

“This high-power charging network provides motorists with another strong argument to move towards electric mobility”, says Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. “The BMW Group has initiated numerous public charging infrastructure projects over the last years. The joint project is another major milestone clearly demonstrating that competitors are combining forces to ramp-up e-mobility.”

Daimler AG

“The breakthrough of e-mobility requires two things: convincing vehicles and a comprehensive charging infrastructure. With our new brand EQ, we are launching our electric product offensive: by 2025, our portfolio will include more than ten fully electric passenger cars. Together with our partners, we are now installing the highest-powered charging infrastructure in Europe”, says Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “The availability of high-power stations allows long-distance e-mobility for the first time and will convince more and more customers to opt for an electric vehicle.”

Ford Motor Company

“A reliable, ultra-fast charging infrastructure is important for mass consumer adoption and has the potential to transform the possibilities for electric driving”, says Mark Fields, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company. “Ford is committed to developing vehicles and technologies that make people’s lives better, and this charging network will make it easier and more practical for customers across Europe to own electrified vehicles.”

AUDI AG

“We intend to create a network that allows our customers on long-distance trips to use a coffee break for recharging”, says Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG. “Reliable fast charging services are a key factor for drivers to choose an electric vehicle. With this cooperation we want to boost a broader market adoption of e-mobility and speed up the shift towards emission-free driving.”

Porsche AG

“There are two decisive aspects for us: ultra-fast charging and placing the charging stations at the right positions”, says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. “Together, these two factors enable us to travel in an all-electrically powered car as in a conventional combustion engine vehicle. As automobile manufacturer, we actively shape our future, not only by developing all-electrically powered vehicles but by building up the necessary infrastructure as well.”

I Costruttori automobilistici intendono fare investimenti sostanziali per dare vita alla rete, sottolineando il credo di ciascuna Azienda nel futuro della mobilità elettrica. Mentre i partner fondatori – BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company e il Gruppo Volkswagen – saranno soci paritari nella Joint Venture, altri Costruttori automobilistici saranno invitati a partecipare alla rete per contribuire a creare soluzioni di ricarica convenienti per i Clienti. La Joint Venture intende inoltre collaborare con partner regionali per assicurare una rapida realizzazione della rete.

La formazione della Joint Venture è soggetta all’esecuzione degli accordi definitivi e all’approvazione dell’autorità di vigilanza sulle fusioni in varie giurisdizioni.

An important Joint Venture to the fast charge in Europe

BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and Volkswagen Group with Audi & Porsche Plan a Joint Venture for Ultra-Fast, High-Power Charging Along Major Highways in Europe

- Joint Venture to deploy a high-powered DC charging network for battery electric vehicles (BEV) covering long-distance travel routes in Europe

- Power levels up to 350 kW significantly reduce charging time compared to available systems

- Build-up of about 400 ultra-fast charging sites planned in Europe

- Network is based on the Combined Charging System (CCS) standard which uses a connector that is fully compatible with most current and next generations BEVs

- Unprecedented collaboration of the automakers would form a brand-independent network for charging infrastructure

Stuttgart, Germany. November 29, 2016. BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to create the highest-powered charging network in Europe. The goal is the quick build-up of a sizable number of stations in order to enable long-range travel for battery electric vehicle drivers. This will be an important step towards facilitating mass-market BEV adoption.

The projected ultra-fast high-powered charging network with power levels up to 350 kW will be significantly faster than the most powerful charging system deployed today. The build-up is planned to start in 2017. An initial target of about 400 sites in Europe is planned. By 2020 the customers should have access to thousands of high-powered charging points. The goal is to enable long-distance travel through open-network charging stations along highways and major thoroughfares, which has not been feasible for most BEV drivers to date. The charging experience is expected to evolve to be as convenient as refueling at conventional gas stations.

The network will be based on Combined Charging System (CCS) standard technology. The planned charging infrastructure expands the existing technical standard for AC- and DC charging of electric vehicles to the next level of capacity for DC fast charging with up to 350 kW.

BEVs that are engineered to accept this full power of the charge stations can recharge brandindependently in a fraction of the time of today’s BEVs. The network is intended to serve all CCS equipped vehicles to facilitate the BEV adoption in Europe.

The automobile manufacturers intend to make substantial investments to create the network, underscoring each company’s belief in the future of electric mobility. While the founding partners – BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and Volkswagen Group – will be equal partners in the Joint Venture, other automobile manufacturers will be encouraged to participate in the network to help establish convenient charging solutions for BEV customers. The Joint Venture is also open for cooperations with regional partners.

The Joint Venture formation is subject to execution of definitive agreements and merger control approval in various jurisdictions.
