E.ON to install ultra-fast charging points on Germany’s autobahn
German utility E.ON and service station operator Tank & Rast are collaborating on updating electric vehicle charging points at more than 90 locations along German motorways, E.ON has announced in a press release. E.ON will install and operate ultra-fast charging points with 150-kilowatt capacity, and a possible increase to up to 350 kilowatts. “Only if the charging of tomorrow is almost as fast as it currently is to fill up with petrol will e-mobility prevail in long distances,” E.ON chief operating officer Karsten Wildberger said.
