IONITY to open high-power charging station in Brenner

IONITY, a joint venture between the BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company, and the Volkswagen Group with Porsche AG, announced that it will expand its Italian network with a high-power charging station in Brenner. This makes it Sudtirol-Altoadige’s fastest EV charging station.

IONITY is continuing the expansion of its Italian charge network with the launch of a new station in Brenner, Italy. Drivers can now charge their electric cars in less than 20 minutes using renewable energy from IONITY’s high-power chargers at Brenner Outlet. IONITY aims to increase the feasibility and adoption of EVs by establishing convenient high-power charging (HPC) sites across the continent. Brenner is the third of 20 stations to be launched in Italy, helping to make long-distance EV driving in Italy possible.

IONITY’s network will establish 2,400 chargers across Europe by 2020, enabling hassle-free pan-European EV travel. With ultra-fast charging times and the selection of convenient motorway locations, IONITY’s network will make long distance journeys far more viable than much slower 50kW alternatives. The 350kW Italian charging network is future-proofed, delivering infrastructure capable of charging times as low as 20 minutes, making e-mobility a convenient, reliable and everyday experience.

For all of its Italian stations, IONITY’s high-power chargers will provide every charge point with 100 per cent renewable energy, greatly reducing the environmental impact of a journey and providing peace of mind for environmentally conscious drivers.
