Everyone who is connected to Mercedes Me Charge now has access to the Nordic region’s largest charging network – Recharge. The network, formerly called Fortum Charge & Drive, provides Mercedes Me customers access to over 2,300 charging points in Sweden, Norway and Finland. Including hundreds of fast chargers.
Mercedes Me Charge is a system that makes it possible for those who drive a rechargeable Mercedes to charge at more than 200,000 charging points in Europe – and get everything on a single invoice. In total, more than 400 different operators are connected, but the customer only needs a single subscription. In addition, the navigator in all rechargeable Mercedes takes into account where these chargers are located when planning travel routes. The charging is with 100% green electricity.
Recharge now makes over 2,300 charging points in the Nordic region available to Mercedes Me customers. Of these, up to 1,000 are fast chargers (DC) and over a hundred high power chargers of up to 350 kW. Recharge plan to expand their network ahead, with focus on high power charging.
We are very happy to include Mercedes me Charge to our growing list of service providers, and we are looking forward to welcome more Mercedes customers to our charging stations in Norway, Sweden and Finland. We are confident that we can provide Mercedes customers reliable charging at attractive locations with good service offerings, says Annika Hoffner, CEO in Recharge.
