Zapping Auto Moto Hyundai Ioniq 5 N: contact with the 650 hp electric battery!
There is no shortage of ideas for adopting electric cars, particularly in Europe. The recent example of Olaf Scholz can attest to this. In fact, the latter intends to force service stations to equip themselves with charging stations.
He spoke on this subject at the IAA trade fair in Munich. This obligation should come soon. It would concern the majority of stations of this type and would also make it possible to offer rapid charging points. While the latter are lacking in the face of the influx of electric vehicles, which will be the only ones (at present) that can be sold in Europe, from 2035:
“Germany will be the first country in Europe to pass a law requiring operators of 80% of all gas stations to offer fast charging options of at least 150 kW for electric cars.”
Adapt the number of charging points to demand
Enough to create many more charging points. Still, the cost of this global transformation will undoubtedly be very high. It will also take many more terminals than fuel guns, since recharging on the former takes longer.
In France, Pierre Coppey (boss of Vinci Autoroutes) illustrated this very well. During the “Saving the common good” Summit organized by Challenges at the beginning of June in Toulouse, he felt that it was necessary “six times more charging stations”. “Because it takes five minutes to refuel and 30 minutes to recharge a battery.”
In France, such an obligation for service stations is clearly not on the agenda. Still, the mobility orientation law (LOM, published in the Official Journal on December 26, 2019) provides for the obligation to install charging stations in company car parks with more than 20 spaces. Stores with at least 40 spaces must have 5% of them equipped with charging stations. At least one place must always be dedicated to the latter.

To sum up
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz wants to force service stations to equip themselves with charging stations via a new law. Enough to multiply the number of charging points. Still, this will represent a heavy investment.
