Volkswagen: wants to strengthen its network of charging stations


The Volkswagen Group announces that it has completed an interim evaluation of its global network of fast charging stations around the world.

Therefore, by the end of 2022, more than a third of the 45,000 high-power charging stations (HPCs) that VW planned to install were connected to the network – around 15,000 fast chargers with a charging capacity of up to 350 kW.

The group announces that it intends to become the first global car manufacturer to create a global HPC network that all electric vehicles can use within the framework of the alliance with its various partners.

Under this plan, approximately 10,000 HPC points will be operational in Europe and up to 25,000 worldwide by the end of 2023.

“Volkswagen started building this global fast charging network years ago. Now we are among the pioneers of electric mobility, and we have 15,000 fast charging stations in North America, China and Europe to prove it,” commented Thomas Schmall, member of the board of directors of the group Volkswagen for Technology and the CEO of Volkswagen Group Components.
