Back in early January, Mercedes-Benz announced plans for the new network of fast charging hubs. The plans are part of a collaboration between seven global automakers to implement a universal charging network. The stations will deliver charge rates up to 400kW and offer a variety of plugs to fit any EV, dependent on the region of course.
Per an update from Mercedes, its first branded Charging Hubs will begin operations this October, starting with three locations: Atlanta, Chengdu, China, and Mannheim, Germany. By the end of next year, the German automaker intends for its global network to expand to over 2,000 points and open over 2,000 Charging Hubs by 2030.
