European charging network IONITY, a joint venture of BMW, Daimler, Ford, VW, Audi and Porsche, has purchased 324 new 350 kW chargers from Swiss electronics giant ABB. Purchased as part of the second phase of IONITY’s European network expansion, the chargers are scheduled to be installed in 24 countries by the end of 2020.
IONITY bought 340 chargers from ABB in 2018. To date, the venture has opened 202 charging sites in 18 countries.
Frank Muehlon, Head of ABB’s global business for E-mobility Infrastructure Solutions, said, “We have been proud to support IONITY in the initial phase of its EV charging network roll-out and are very much looking forward to our ongoing work with them to build a comprehensive, pan-European, high-power charging network.”
