Hyundai Motor Group has joined the IONITY — the pan-European EV charging network that began operations in 2017. The Group’s participation in this joint venture will benefit both Hyundai and Kia brands.
The Ionity charging network uses the European CCS (Combined Charging System) charging standard, with a maximum charging capacity of up to 350 kW. One big advantage of this network is that it uses 100% renewable energies (solar and wind) that enable the EVs to offer a true emission-free travel.
The plan is to have 400 charging stations across Europe (including UK) and at the time of publishing this story, Ionity had 300 live and 52 under construction.
By investing in Ionity, we are now part of one of the most comprehensive charging infrastructure networks in Europe. We are committed to provide holistic solutions to make it easier than ever for people to make the switch to eco-mobility. – Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President and Head of Product Division at Hyundai Motor Group
