Tesla is reportedly interested in joining Ionity EV charging network project in Europe
In a recent report, Germany’s Süddeutsche Zeitung has disclosed that US electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla is one of the several automakers interested in joining the ongoing Ionity ‘ultra-fast’ joint electric car charging network project in Europe. The project is backed by BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, and Ford.
According to the report, Tesla is in talks to join the Ionity electric car charging network along with some other automakers. The report has specifically revealed that, besides Tesla, other automakers that have shown interest in joining the Ionity network include Fiat Chrysler, PSA / Opel, Volvo, and Jaguar Land Rover.
The Ionity ‘ultra-fast’ joint electric car charging network project in Europe evidently marks the most ambitious electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure project since the Supercharger network developed by Tesla. The project is focused on the deployment of ‘ultra-fast’ chargers, with 350 kW capacity each, at different charging stations across Europe.
Although Tesla already has its Supercharger network spread out at nearly 400 stations in Europe, those Superchargers have a 120 kW capacity, and can only be accessed by Tesla EVs.
The Ionity EV charging network uses the CCS standard, which is supported by most automakers, including Tesla which is promoting the CSS standard by becoming a core member of the CharIN organization.
