Mercedes-Benz Launches EV Charging Network in Georgia


The automaker plans to establish more than 400 charging hubs with over 2,500 chargers across North America by the end of the decade.

Mercedes-Benz High Performance Computing North America (Mercedes-Benz HPC NA), in collaboration with MN8 Energy, unveiled its first Mercedes-Benz Charging Hub. Located at the Mercedes-Benz USA headquarters in Sandy Springs, GA, this launch marks the beginning of a broader initiative to expand the EV charging network across North America.

The inaugural Mercedes-Benz Charging Hub sets a new standard in the charging industry. Notable features include 400kW ChargePoint chargers, capable of delivering some of the industry's fastest charging speeds. This advancement allows EVs to charge from 10% to 80% in under 20 minutes under specific conditions.

Another aspect of the new charging hub is its accessibility and open nature. From the outset, EV drivers of any brand can use these facilities, an inclusive approach critical to promoting widespread EV adoption.

The charging hub offers an array of amenities, including a luxurious lounge with comfortable seating, refreshments and restrooms, all powered by renewable energy. Its design includes a solar canopy for weather protection and overhead LED lighting for safety, while solar panels generate clean electricity. The hub also features intelligent indicators and an accessibility-focused design, accommodating electric vans and vehicles with trailers.

"The Mercedes-Benz Charging Network expands global charging options for all EV brands, promoting clean, electric mobility," said Franz Reiner, chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Mobility AG. This initiative aligns with Mercedes-Benz's strategic focus on areas of high EV usage and future potential, enhancing the EV charging map in North America.

In addition to the Sandy Springs hub, Mercedes-Benz HPC NA plans to establish more than 400 charging hubs with over 2,500 chargers by the end of the decade. This initiative includes collaborations with retail giants like Simon and Buc-ee’s, integrating charging stations into popular shopping and travel destinations.

"Our driver-first network aims to set a new standard for quality charging experiences, accessible to all EV drivers," said Andrew Cornelia, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz HPC North America LLC.
The Mercedes-Benz Charging Network is part of a global commitment to electrified mobility, with plans to establish more than 10,000 charging points worldwide by the end of the decade. This endeavor is a critical component of Mercedes-Benz Group’s Ambition 2039, aiming for a carbon-neutral value chain.
