Enel X and Smart get ready to change e-mobility
A drive in a Smart car from the Stazione Termini to the Enel X head office in Rome as part of the press launch of the latest new developments on the e-mobility scene, the result of a highly productive collaboration with Daimler. The new “ready to charge” app, which integrates the previous “ready to park” app, enables users to identify via their smartphone the nearest of the 96 garages that are part of the service, and where they can park and charge their Smart car. By the end of 2018 Enel X will provide each approved garage with between two and eight 22 kW charging stations.
With Enel X we are literally racing to complete an increasingly comprehensive public charging infrastructure in as short a time as possible. The agreement with Daimler has also enabled us to speed up the implementation of our National Plan in the capital
We have always supported the idea that urban mobility must move towards the use of electricity. The decision only to produce electric versions of the Smart car by 2020 is a courageous strategy, but we are sure it’s the right one and we’re proud to be the first international brand to make the move from internal combustion to electric
Our offer provides a range of e-mobility functions for garage, home or private office installations and ultra-rapid stations installed along the major connecting road arteries or large-scale retail car parks. The stations have a maximum power of 50 kW, but we’re soon going to install stations with power outputs of up to 350 kW. That means it will only take as long to charge an e-car as it does to fill up at the petrol pump
