As the bid to phase out, diesel powered cars with electric cars because of its atmospheric implications, many auto industries have been making adjustments to key into the trend.
A group of automakers in Europe had on Friday announced they will launch “Ionity,” a network of high-power fast-charging stations to build out the continent’s infrastructure for electric-car travel.
A project which they hope to conclude by 2020. The ionity will include 400 charging stations across multiple countries, supporting all electric cars that adhere to the Combined Charging Standard (CCS) protocol.
The coalition of automakers which included BMW, Mercedes-Benz’s parent company Daimler, Ford, and Volkswagen said they have commenced the project immediately and will install 20 charging stations in 2017.
