A plug-in hybrid is a car that can drive on both petrol and electricity. Unfortunately plug-in hybrid cars cannot charge at our stations since the battery does not support fast charging. The only exception is the Mitsubishi Outlander.
Fastned supports the three fast charging standards suitable for full electric vehicles. Our AC-plugs can deliver a maximum power of 43 kW, however a plug-in vehicle will not request this since the vehicle determines the charge speed. In most cases also slow charging will not work.
Fastned builds a countrywide network of fast charging stations for the electric vehicles of tomorrow. The need for fast chargers will increase strongly over the next few years as batteries of electric vehicles will become larger. Our stations are located directly along the highway and these are the places were drivers want to charge as quickly as possible. Our stations are not designed for slow charging. We will therefor not invest in facilities for slow charging and look at the future. Luckily there are plenty of other places where plug-ins can charge.
Examples of popular plug-ins that cannot charge at Fastned:
- Audi A3 e-tron
- Opel Ampera
- Volkswagen Golf GTE
- Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid
