Hyundai/Kia Join European EV Charging Network
Hyundai Motor Co. and its Kia Motors affiliate have joined Ionity GmbH, a consortium that is building an ultra-high-speed charging network in Europe for electric vehicles.
Ionity was formed in 2017 by Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, Porsche and Volkswagen.
To date, the group has installed 140 350-kWh charging stations in 14 countries. Plans call for the network to grow to 400 sites across Europe by the end of 2020, with a goal of having a charging station about every 120 km (74 miles) along major highways.
The changing landscape requires not only new approaches to powertrains—but even new types of vehicles. Here’s how one supplier is addressing these changes.
