200 more stations coming this year and then... most likely thousands from 2020-2030.

The IONITY ultra-fast charging network in Europe, recently reached an important milestone of opening its 200th location (out of 400 planned).

The online map shows currently 202 sites and 52 more under construction, which means that there should not be any trouble to reach the target by the end of 2020.

The next big question is what will be the next target for IONITY, a joint venture founded for the European market in 2017 by BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and the Volkswagen Group with Porsche AG. Earlier this year the endeavour was joined by the Hyundai Motor Group.

It's expected that IONITY will not only continue expansion but accelerate to support the massive rollout of all-electric cars in Europe.
