Volkswagen's first 300 kW High Power Charging stations will debut in 2021 as part of an expansionVolkswagen is significantly expanding the charging infrastructure at its German sites. Some 750 new charging points are planned for next year, including the first High Power Charging stations with up to 300 kW power. Some 2,000 charging points in total are expected to be in operation by the end of 2021 - over 50% more than at present. Currently, there are already more than 1,200 charging points at Volkswagen's ten sites in Germany. A large share are publicly accessible and can also be used by EV drivers who do not work for Volkswagen. The biggest charging park with some 500 charging points is located in Wolfsburg. Further parks have been installed in Hanover, Brunswick, Salzgitter, Kassel, Emden, Osnabrück, Zwickau, Chemnitz and Dresden. In the past twelve months alone, Volkswagen recorded over 50,000 charging operations at its sites. The power comes exclusively from renewable energy sources. Some 4,000 charging points are to be installed at the brand's sites by 2025. In addition, the Group engages worldwide in setting up fast-charging networks - via IONITY in Europe, Electrify America in the USA and CAMS in China.
