Eni and IONITY have signed a framework agreement to install high power-chargers for electric cars at Eni service stations.

IONITY, a joint venture between Daimler, Ford, BMW and the Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche, is currently on target to install 400 stations across Europe by 2020, with up to 2,400 chargers.

IONITY has chosen Eni in Italy as its strategic partner to install 180 state-of-the-art chargers across 30 sites.

Each station will feature six 350 kW chargers (more than 100 times the power of standard household utilities), able to top-up current, as well as the next generation of electric vehicles in under 20 minutes.

This initiative is part of Eni’s plan to develop sustainable mobility: out of an overall network of 4,400 service stations, 3,500 supply Eni Diesel +, the premium diesel with 15% renewable content produced in the Venice bio-refinery, while about 1,000 also supply LPG and methane.
