High-power Ionity charging station in Brenner


The IONITY network will be expanding its presence in Italy with a High-Power Charging station in Brenner. This makes it Sudtirol-Altoadige’s fastest EV charging station.

Drivers can now charge their electric cars in less than 20 minutes using renewable energy from IONITY’s High-Power Chargers at Brenner Outlet.

IONITY is a joint venture between Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company, BMW Group and the Volkswagen Group with Porsche AG, that aims to increase the feasibility and adoption of EVs by establishing convenient High-Power Charging (HPC) sites across the continent. Brenner is the third of 20 stations to be launched in Italy, helping to make long-distance EV driving in Italy possible.

IONITY’s network will establish 2400 chargers across Europe by 2020. With ultra-fast charging times and the selection of convenient motorway locations, IONITY’s network will make long distance journeys far more viable than much slower 50kW alternatives. The 350kW Italian charging network is future-proofed, delivering infrastructure capable of charging times as low as 20 minutes, making e-mobility a convenient, reliable and everyday experience.

For all of its Italian stations, IONITY’s High-Power Chargers will provide every charge point with 100% renewable energy, greatly reducing the environmental impact of a journey and providing peace of mind for environmentally conscious drivers.

Dr. Marcus Groll, COO of IONITY said, “Close collaboration with site partners like l’Outlet Center Brennero has enabled IONITY to provide significant high power charging capacity on one of Europe’s most important transit routes. IONITY’s network is finally giving EVs in Italy the kind of charging speeds their owners want.”
