We enable long-distance
trips by electric-powered
vehicles in Europe!

Another important milestone is set for e-mobility and for an ecological future of transportation: the ultra-E project, co-financed by the “Connecting Europe Facility” of the European Union. This project will deploy, for the first time in Europe, a contiguous network of 25 ultra-fast charging sites with a charging power of up to 350 kW per connector on TEN-T core network corridors.

This network will connect the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Austria. By mid of 2018, the ultra-E network will be completed and will facilitate long distance and cross border driving on corridors from Amsterdam and Brussels via Munich to Vienna and Graz with a total length of the corridors of more than 1000 km.
