Volvo has just signed a partnership with NW. This French unicorn specializing in electric charging will equip all of the brand’s dealerships with high-power terminals.
Charging stations in all Volvo dealerships
Volvo has big ambitions on the French market. The Scandinavian manufacturer has set itself the objective of selling only electric vehicles by 2026 in France. With the help of NWa company that has been developing solutions linked to the energy transition since 2007, Volvo plans to install fast charging stations in all its French dealerships.
What is the impact on electric power for Volvo in 2023?
The two companies say they have the same ambition. Namely: accelerate the energy transition and make sustainable development a central element of their strategy. By electrifying all of its dealerships, Volvo is also seeking to develop a charging offer throughout the country and particularly in rural or peri-urban areas, which have long been neglected.
Fast charging for 0.30 euros/kWh
IECharge fast charging terminals will therefore be installed throughout France, at each of Volvo’s 126 distribution points in France. Subject to possible connection to the electricity network and if local planning rules allow it. These new stations promise particularly low prices. Perhaps even the lowest on the market: 0.30 euros/kWh.
IECharge stations are systematically connected to a JBox storage unit, “ which makes it possible to guarantee a certain charging power while preserving the electricity network, even in the event of simultaneous charging of several vehicles », specifies NW. Yves Pasquier-Desvignes, President of Volvo in France, sees this partnership as a great opportunity to differentiate itself.
Test – Volvo EX30: because the Volvo is good!
Selo him, « The agreement signed between Volvo and NW aims to contribute to the national implementation of ultra-fast charging stations for customers, by offering dealers exclusive partnerships to benefit from high-power implementation “. As specified, the terminals installed in the concessions will therefore be reserved only for customers.
