Ionity – the charging infrastructure joint venture between BMW, Daimler, Ford and the Volkswagen Group – has selected ABB as the main technology partner and supplier.
The Ionity network has now opened its first station in Neuenkirch, Switzerland, and the new installation features six of ABB’s Terra HP high-speed chargers.
Michael Hajesch, managing director of Ionity, said he is “glad to have a strong and international technology partner with ABB to drive e-mobility to the next level across Europe”.
“This is a truly landmark European launch and one which we are honored to have been chosen to support, particularly with the first pilot site opening in ABB’s home country of Switzerland,” added Frank Muehlon, managing director for electric vehicle charging infrastructure at ABB.
“We already have approximately 7,000 connected, DC fast charging stations installed worldwide and with this launch we are delighted to be partnering with Ionity to bring high-performance, sustainable e-mobility to the masses across Europe.”
