Project partners The New Motion, e8energy, Citroën and Total recently opened the first of three public fast charging stations in Berlin. The stations use the e8energy @fix fast charger, featuring an integral Type 2 connector (AC, up to 22 kW) and fast charging CHAdeMO (JEVS G105) socket (DC, up to 20 kW). The @fix charging station is also available with the CCS Combo 2 (IEC 62196-3) output jack.
Use requires a charge card—which can be ordered free of charge—from network operator The New Motion. This not only allows charging at all The New Motion charging stations, but also at those of its roaming partners Ladenetz.de.
Customers of Citroën Multicity Carsharing Berlin—with a total of 350 Citroën C-Zero BEVs—will find a charging card in their vehicles for use at the quick charging stations. Drivers will be able to charge the battery of the vehicle to 85% of maximum within 40 minutes.
The charging points are located at three different Total stations. The first is in Berlin-Mitte (Holzmarktstraße 36-42), the other two will be in Friedrichshain (Margarete-Sommer-Straße 2) and Prenzlauer Berg (Storkower Straße 174).
