With Izivia, a subsidiary of EDF, McDonald’s will install 150 kW charging stations in more than 700 car parks.
In addition to fast food, McDonald’s is getting into fast charging! The fast food brand will in fact offer the Izivia Fast network in collaboration with Izivia, a subsidiary of EDF.
Thanks to the good presence of McDonald’s in France, this network promises a good coverage of the territory. More than 700 restaurant car parks will be equipped by 2025, with a total of 2,000 charging points.
And the network is adapted to the restaurant category: in principle, a customer at McDonald’s is not there to hang out at the table. To be interesting with a shortened time frame, the recharge must be really useful. We will therefore find 150 kW terminals in car parks, some even 200 kW.
With this project, McDonald’s France and Izivia say they are making “a major contribution to the densification of the ultra-fast charging network ensuring a significant coverage of the territory”. It is true that although France now has more than 110,000 charging points in the public domain, less than 10% have a power greater than or equal to 150 kW. However, charging time on long journeys remains a question mark for many French people.
The kWh price has not been made official, but it is promised to be attractive. Access to the terminals will be simple for everyone: payment can be made with a bank card, the Izivia Pass, the badge of another operator, the IZIVIA application or a QR code.
This Tuesday, November 21, the first Izivia Fast terminal was inaugurated in Noisy-Le-Grand.
