500 million euros

Traton, Volvo and Daimler could continue their plans for a European network of payment infrastructure. Following an investigation, competition officials in Brussels concluded that they were not violating competition rules by establishing a joint venture.

This is according to a European Commission publication.

According to truck builders, the joint venture, in which three truck manufacturers each have a third shareholder, was due to start earlier this year from the planned headquarters in Amsterdam. Together they have saved 500 million euros for the project. However, the establishment was delayed by a competition investigation.

1,700 points for payment

Developers want to place 1,700 charging stations along European highways, shipping centers and key locations in twelve countries within five years. Bus infrastructure is available for both truck and bus products.

The number of sites should grow later through the arrival of additional partners and with the help of government funding, truck builders expect.
