IONITY announced a kWh based pricing structure for its European High Power Charging network that will be effective on January 31st.
IONITY is the joint venture between the BMW Group, Mercedes-Benz AG, the Ford Motor Company, and the Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche.
Connected Mobility Service Providers (MSP) such as Audi e-tron Charging Service, Mercedes me Charge, BMW ChargeNow, Porsche Charging Service and Volkswagen WeCharge offer financially attractive and bespoke packages for motorway drivers who regularly use IONITY’s European High Power Charging network. IONITY is also open to other MSP’s wishing to offer this network to their clients.
Customers who for example do not use the motorway on a regular basis and do not have a contract with an MSP, will be able to charge their electric vehicles at all sites in IONITY’s network using a price-per-kilowatt-hour (kWh) format, at €0.79ct—per kWh (gross price in country-specific currency).
Michael Hajesch, CEO of IONITY, commented:
It has always been IONITY’s aim to build a uniform and coherent network to make seamless, high-speed, long-distance electric mobility across Europe a reality. Providing customers with unparalleled levels of service is key to our business. With regard to the rapid developments in electromobility our new pricing scheme offers a viable and transparent pricing structure in Europe. Depending on their individual needs, our customers have the freedom to choose the most appropriate scheme available.
Currently, more than 200 charging stations with more than 860 charging points are active in 20 countries. IONITY offers their customers significant advantages by supplying them with charging stations along European motorways equipped with several user units at each location, capable of delivering up to 350kW.
Once the planned network has been fully developed, IONITY’s chargers will cover 24 European countries by the end of 2020, with 100 per cent-renewable energy. The joint venture consistently follows the sustainable approach by significantly reducing the environmental impact of each journey and giving peace of mind for environmentally conscious drivers.
