Milton Keynes joins IONITY’s high power charging network


IONITY is expanding its UK network with a High Power Charging station in Milton Keynes.

Drivers will be able to charge their electric cars in less than 20 minutes using renewable energy from IONITY’s High Power Chargers at Milton Keynes Coachway.

IONITY is a joint venture between Daimler, Ford, BMW and the Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche, that aims to increase the feasibility and adoption of EVs by establishing convenient High Power Charging (HPC) sites across the continent. Milton Keynes is the second station to be launched in the UK, with a third soon to follow in Gretna Green.

Milton Keynes is the UK home of Volkswagen Group, BMW and Daimler, making the new station an important and symbolic location for the IONITY network.

IONITY’s network will establish 2,400 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 UK charging network is capable of charging times as low as 8 minutes, making e-mobility a convenient, reliable and everyday experience.

For all of its UK stations, IONITY’s High Power Chargers will provide every charge point with 100% renewable energy.
