Mercedes-Benz Opens Its First Charging Station In Germany.

What's in this blog
  • Mercedes-Benz has opened its first charging station in Mannheim, Germany.
  • The Mannheim hub takes the lead as the first of 30 upcoming fast-charging parks in Europe, with plans to expand to 200+ by the end of 2024.
  • Mercedes-Benz partners with E.ON to build and operate charging stations across Europe, resulting in a new era of accessible and sustainable mobility.
Mercedes-Benz recently opened its first charging station in Mannheim, Germany, with six 300 kW charging stations for electric vehicles. Each charger has a single port to optimise energy distribution and ensure maximum efficiency. Furthermore, with intelligent charging management, select EVs can charge to 80% in less than 20 minutes.

E.ON will work with Mercedes-Benz on the development and operation of the Charging Network in Europe as part of a strategic partnership, providing assistance at various stages, from site selection to construction and ongoing services.

The charging station is accessible for vehicles of all sizes and brands, but Mercedes-Benz customers receive special benefits. This includes a welcome introductory rate as well as complimentary charging through the Mercedes Me Charge service during the first three months. Furthermore, the navigation system in Mercedes-Benz electric vehicles provides real-time charging point information, allowing for better route planning and travel timing. A reservation feature is also in the works, allowing Mercedes-Benz customers to pre-book charging stations.

Mercedes-Benz customers also enjoy attractive terms, such as a welcome tariff. During the first few months, all new Mercedes-Benz Charging Hubs will offer free charging via the Mercedes me Charge charging service. After this time, Mercedes me Charge tariffs will apply. Although third-party brands can use HPC charging parks, pricing information has not been disclosed yet.

Mannheim is the fourth Mercedes-Benz charging station in operation worldwide, with more expected to open by year's end. The other two are in the United States and China. By 2024, there will be more than 2,000 charging stations worldwide, with 200 of those in Europe. Future expansion plans call for more locations in Germany as well as new stations in Italy, Spain, and France. By the end of the decade, Mercedes-Benz wants to have more than 10,000 fast-charging stations installed across the globe.
