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.
