At our new stations and some of our existing stations we will deploy a new generation of fast chargers that allow you to charge up to 3 times faster (up to 175 kW) with electric vehicles that are suited for these higher charge speeds. At the moment the Hyundai Ioniq can charge about 50% faster and the Opel Ampera-e can charge about 20% faster at these new chargers.
You can also use these new chargers with another vehicle with a CCS or CHAdeMO connector, but charging will not be faster that usual (up to 50 kW) because the vehicle determines the charge speed.
When you arrive at a station with a Hyundai Ioniq or Opel Ampera-e the best option is to use this new fast charger if available. Do you have another vehicle? Please choose the regular 50 kW chargers when possible in order to keep the new chargers available for drivers that can benefit from it.
Note: the next generation of fast chargers is no longer equipped with an AC connector. The new chargers only offer CCS and CHAdeMO connectors because they focus on charging with much higher speeds. The manufacturer no longer offers the AC connector as an option. Offering separate AC charging poles specifically for the Renault ZOE is not feasible unfortunately. Of course you can still use our existing stations with a Renault ZOE to charge your vehicle.
