EQC drivers are given access to the IONITY high-power charging network with its fast charging stations, which make relaxed, long-distance journeys on Europe’s most important arterial routes a genuine possibility. A smartphone app shows the precise position and current availability of charging stations, plus the price, at the vehicle’s actual location, at points along the route or at the destination. The vehicle’s navigation system is also provided with these data, enabling it to adapt its route guidance accordingly. Authentication at the charging point takes place via the media display, the smartphone app or the RFID card. Everything else is handled automatically through Mercedes me Charge. One log-in, one invoice. Covers many public and all IONITY charging stations.
