station chain XY, under which 20 locations will initially be equipped
with ultra-fast charging stations. What’s more, E.ON and CLEVER are also
in talks with automobile manufacturers, licensors for motorway service
stations and operators of service and filling station as well as other
potential partners in Germany.
