Ionity was created by BMW Group, Daimler, Ford Motor and Volkswagen Group, and later Hyundai joined the project. Today it is one of the fastest growing networks of charging stations, which has more than two hundred stations in 20 countries. By 2020, their number will reach 400 pieces.
From January 31 this year, tariffs will be calculated according to the new rules – depending on the received kilowatt hours. As a result, if earlier car owners paid the same regardless of the time spent at the station, now the cost of a full charge will increase many times over. And in some cases, replenishment of energy at Ionity stations will be less profitable than refueling an ordinary car with fuel at a gas station, which may cause dissatisfaction with the owners of environmentally friendly cars.
