Ionity announces new pricing plans


Electric vehicle (EV) charge point provider Ionity has announced a new pricing scheme across its network.  

Ionity offers a network for high-power-charging electric vehicles to facilitate long-distance travel across all Europe

The group– a joint venture between the BMW Group, Daimler AG, the Ford Motor Company, and the Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche – has announced a kilowatt hour-based pricing structure with effect from January 31st.

Connected Mobility Service Providers (MSP) such as Audi e-tron Charging Service, Mercedes.Me.Charge, BMW ChargeNow, Porsche Charging Service and Volkswagen WeCharge offer packages for the use of Ionity's European High Power Charging network (EHPC).

Michael Hajesch, chief executive of Ionity, said: “Significant investment has helped establish and grow Ionity's network to make seamless, high-speed, long-distance electric mobility across Europe a reality.

“Providing customers with unparalleled levels of service has been key to our business from day one.

“Looking at the accelerating run-up in electromobility, our new pricing scheme offers an economically viable and transparent pricing structure across Europe.

“Depending on their individual requirements our customers can use attractive charging offers from one of our cooperating mobility service providers or choose to charge their vehicle directly with Ionity.”

Currently, more than 200 charging stations with more than 860 charging points are active in 20 countries.

The company offers its customers significant advantages by supplying them with charging stations across European motorways.

Once the planned network has been fully developed, its chargers will cover 24 European countries by the end of the year, with 100%-renewable energy.

The operation follows the sustainable approach by significantly reducing the environmental impact of every journey, aiming to promote EV driving, reducing emissions from diesel and petrol vehicles.

    £0.69 per kWh is extremely expensive, especially when most other providers are between 15p and 30p per kWh. I can understand it costing more than charging at home, but not four times more.

    Is Ionity trying to drive customers away with their pricing, so they can say "look there's no demand (this network was part of the Dieselgate settlement)? Perhaps the MSP packages are much more competitive and they are only trying to tie people in to a contract?

    Absolutely insane. Good luck in persuading me to buy any kind of car off you sorry bunch in the future. I hope Tesla rubs your noses in it.
