IONNA EV Charging Network Backed by Automakers Begins Operations

The network is the result of a collaboration between BMW, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz and Stellantis.

Owners of the upcoming Chevrolet Silverado EV will be able to use the new network.

IONNA, a joint venture among global automotive giants, has officially commenced its journey to create one of North America's most extensive and powerful EV charging networks. Spearheaded by industry veteran Seth Cutler as CEO, IONNA is set to deploy at least 30,000 high-powered charging stations across the continent.

With the backing of seven of the world's most influential automakers -- BMW, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz and Stellantis -- IONNA's initiative marks a pivotal moment in the push for widespread EV adoption.

"Our shared commitment to creating an extensive, high-powered charging network reflects our dedication to revolutionizing the entire EV charging experience," said Cutler.

Under Cutler's leadership, who boasts a distinguished career in electric mobility and infrastructure development, IONNA aims to elevate the customer charging experience. The network promises accessibility to all EVs equipped with NACS or CCS connectors, offering an integrated, top-tier charging service. This includes providing amenities such as restrooms, food services and retail outlets at charging locations, ensuring customer comfort and convenience.

The charging stations will not only support long-distance EV travel, but also align with the sustainability goals of the participating automakers by being powered by renewable energy sources. The placement of these stations throughout North America will start with the U.S. in 2024 and eventually expand into Canada.
