Electric Vehicle Charging To See Price Jump In Hungary
Electric vehicle charging company Ionity, which operates three ultrafast electric vehicle chargers in Hungary, will abandon its flat pricing at charging stations across Europe beginning January 31, Portfolio reported citing German media.

The joint project by BMW, Daimler, Volkswagen and Ford has until now charged motorists a flat €8 (Ft 2,680) fee, independent of the electricity consumed.

Motorists can expect to dig deeper into their pockets with the new rates, which will be €0.8 (Ft 280) per Kwh of electricity. This translates into a cost of Ft 3,900-7,000 for charging EV cars with electricity consumption of 14-25 Kwh per 100km, the standard on the market.

Ionity operates 203 ultrafast chargers in Europe with 52 under construction. In Hungary, a charger is available alongside the M1 motorway near Bábolna and two near Lake Balaton along the M7 motorway at Kajászó and Balatonkeresztúr.
