Enormous New EV Charging Network, IONNA, Announced By 7 Automakers

IONNA is a new joint venture founded by BMW, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, and Stellantis. The seven automakers received regulator approval and announced the new IONNA charging network, last week. The network is being modeled on the successful European network named Ionity.

The plan is to have at least 30,000 new EV chargers running by 2030. The stations will use CCS or Tesla’s NACS connectors. The station’s chargers will also work with the seven automakers’ payment apps and route planning apps. The new joint venture expects to begin opening new stations this year.

The new network will be located along highways and in cities. Some sites are planning to have amenities similar to airline lounges, such as bathrooms and refreshments.
