Future Mobility

Taking charge of e-mobility

IONITY GmbH is at CEBIT 2018 to reveal how its cutting-edge European high-power charging network is set to make long-distance travel with electric vehicles a reality.

05 Jun. 2018

IONITY is a joint venture between the BMW Group, Daimler AG, the Ford Motor Company and the Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche. Its aim is to build a network of reliable and powerful charging stations along major routes across Europe. Boasting a capacity of up to 350 kW, these user-friendly stations can charge vehicles in next to no time, making long-distance travel with electric vehicles an enjoyable experience.

Besides innovation, customer experience and safety, IONITY believes design also plays a major role in electromobility. That’s why the joint venture has developed an exclusive design concept for its European-wide high-power charging network. A seemingly floating light structure sits on the top of each vertically rising pylon, helping drivers spot charging stations from afar - even in the dark. True to the principles of e-mobility, the charging stations are designed to create an open, easy-going and friendly atmosphere. Clear structures and surfaces, smart interfaces and a combination of robust and light-weight materials are set to come together to offer a seamless charging experience. Much like the IONITY logo, the colors during the charging process, for example, symbolize the energetic pace of the charging status. As Dr. Marcus Groll, COO of IONITY GmbH, explains: "The presentation of our charging stations signals to our shareholders, partners and future customers that the charging of the future is already starting to take shape."
