Ultra-Fast charging with Enel X and IONITY

A new Ultra-Fast charging station network is set to appear in Italy. This is thanks to Enel X and IONITY, a joint e-mobility venture involving car manufacturers BMW, Daimler, Ford and Volkswagen. The cooperation agreement foresees the installation of 20 recharging sites across Italy by the end of 2019. Every site will host up to six 350 kW ultrafast stations that enable the latest-generation e-cars to charge up fully in only 15 to 30 minutes. The 20 IONITY charging stations are included in the plan the joint venture has developed to install 400 sites throughout Europe by 2020.

This important agreement marks our entry into new, forward-looking stage in e-mobility, with the creation of a charging station network that will provide a rapid response to the energy demands of electric cars, generating drastic cuts in charge times. The network will enable e-cars to travel long distances, combining environmental sustainability with the pleasures of a sporty, safe drive. As an IONITY partner, Enel will select the most suitable Italian locations for hosting high-power stations to supply the high end of the e-car market. Our objective is to give a further impulse to the spread of e-mobility in Italy, integrating these high-performance structures with Enel’s national e-mobility plan

Francesco Venturini

CEO of Enel X 

IONITY and Enel X are travelling the same road. We want to make long-distance journeys possible for all e-vehicles throughout Europe. Our partnership with Enel X enables us to build a powerful charging infrastructure and combat so-called ‘range anxiety,’ which at the moment is the main cause for concern for e-vehicle drivers

Chief Operating Officer for IONITY
