Mercedes is definitely one of the most common car brands we see on the road daily, from the S class to the G-class SUV. It is safe to say Mercedes has done quite well since the German brand was founded in 1883 by car engineer Karl Benz and is now creating charging networks.
Mercedes has announced today (7 January 2023) that the car manufacturer will be installing charging points all across the globe for their plug-in hybrid vehicles. The news comes after Mercedes announced the new company research vehicle which has already broken records and has been named as the Vision EQXX.
In 2 tweets posted by the official Mercedes Twitter page, they wrote;
"”Mercedes Benz is announcing the roll out of a global high-power charging network across North America, Europe, China and other key markets”"
"”This will accelerate our journey towards an all-electric future and create global charging infrastructure”"
The high powered charging network by Mercedes is set to be rolled out by the end of 2023 with 10,000 charge station units set to be distributed across the named countries. Once the stations have been built by the global car brand, Mercedes drivers will be able to pre-book a charging station spot from their mobile device or car.
However, the company also announced that these charging stations will not only be for those that drive electric Mercedes vehicles but be open for all car brands to use including Tesla, BMW and Toyota to encourage the world to purchase electric vehicles to help build a sustainable future.
