In conjunction with Cepsa, Ionity has launched its first high-power charging station in Spain, located in Pallejá (Barcelona) and equipped with four high power charging points each with a capacity of 350 kW.

The chargers are compatible with the European standard Combined Charging System (CCS) and reduce charging times for current and future EVs significantly. The Ionity station is among the fastest in Spain and the company has prepared the facility for two additional high power chargers that can be added depending on demand. Cepsa will supply 100 percent renewable energy to the facilities.
The station in Spain is the latest development in the expansion of Inoity’s pan-European charging network. The company’s objective is to make long distance EV travel a reality. Pallejá is also one of 340 ultra-fast charging stations being deployed within the Europe-E project, covering main routes across 13 EU Member States and along all 9 TEN-T Core Network Corridors and the Core Network. The EUROP-E project is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.
Cepsa signed its collaboration agreement with Ionity for the installation of electric charging points at its service stations in Spain and Portugal in July 2018. The company currently has an extensive network of close to 1,800 service stations in the two countries.
