Ionity reveals new EV charging pricing structure


Ionity, the joint venture between the BMW, Daimler, Ford, Audi, and Porsche, has announced a new pricing scheme across its EV charging network.

From 31 January 2020, a price-per-kilowatt-hour (kWh) format will come into effect across its pan-European network of 200+ charging stations.

The scheme will apply to all customers who do not use the motorway on a regular basis and do not have a contract with an Ionity mobility service provider (MSP).

These customers will be able to charge their EVs at all sites in Ionity’s network at €0.79 (£0.67) per kWh.

Over 200 Ionity charging stations with more than 860 charging points are currently active in 20 European countries

Michael Hajesch, CEO of Ionity, said: “Looking at the accelerating run-up in electromobility, our new pricing scheme offers an economically viable and transparent pricing structure across Europe.

“Depending on their individual requirements our customers can use attractive charging offers from one of our cooperating MSPs or choose to charge their vehicle directly with Ionity.”

Ionity’s connected MSPs include Audi e-tron Charging Service, Mercedes.Me.Charge, BMW ChargeNow, Porsche Charging Service and Volkswagen WeCharge.

Once Ionity’s planned network has been fully developed, its 350kW chargers will cover 24 European countries by the end of 2020, with 100% renewable energy.
