Hyundai Motor Group joins IONITY high-power charging network

Hyundai Motor Group has joined IONITY, Europe’s leading high-power charging network, as a strategic partner and shareholder. Through its participation in this joint venture, Hyundai Motor Group—including Hyundai and Kia brands—will drive the expansion of the high-power charging network along Europe’s highways, promoting the further adoption of zero-emission mobility.

The IONITY charging network uses the European CCS (Combined Charging System) charging standard. Since the network uses 100% renewable energies, drivers of electric vehicles are not only able to travel emission-free, but also CO2-neutral.

IONITY builds and operates a high-power charging (HPC) network along Europe’s highways, with a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. Every IONITY charging station consists of an average of four charging points.

IONITY was founded in 2017 and is a joint venture by BMW Group, Mercedes Benz AG, Ford Motor Company, Hyundai Motor Group and the Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche.

Such language should be prohibited by law.  An on-demand charging system uses the at-the-moment mix of whatever is supplying the grid.  So-called "renewables" put energy into the grid when they are available, not when they are needed.  They do not, because they CANNOT, supply the needs of electric vehicles.

Double speak, half truths, truthiness.,,, Keep it simple.. just call it a lie.

And while we are having fun what about

"Every IONITY charging station consists of an average of four charging points."

No. Every means each station, and each one cannot have an "average" anymore than my head can have an average of 2 eyes.

But I'll finish with I support their efforts, many other do not try at all.

Keep up the good work.
