Step by step, the IONITY network is expanding through Europe and already consists of 300, strategically located stations.
IONITY today officially announced that its 300th fast-charging station in Europe went online. It’s located in France.
Having 300 stations makes the network one of the largest one for long-distance travel through Europe, especially for non-Tesla CCS-compatible EVs that can’t use Tesla Superchargers.
The original plan was to install 400 stations by the end of 2020, which means that the goal is 75% complete. On the other hand, the number of 1,211 chargers (with output of up to 350 kW) is now at 50% of the goal of 2,400.
As we can see on the map below, most of the chargers were installed in the central and north part of the Europe, but finally the network is expanding to the south, west, and east.
We guess that once the target of 400 is reached, the owners of the network (BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and the Volkswagen Group with Porsche AG, most recently joined by Hyundai Motor Group) will announce a new expansion stage.
For comparison, Tesla has more than 560 Supercharging stations and significantly more charging stalls (several thousands), with power output of usually 150 kW (V2 versions) and up to 250 kW (V3 versions).
