Dozens of cars, both battery-only and plug-in hybrids, are being trial charged. The charging infrastructure plan up to 2025 expects hundreds – even thousands – of vehicles to be using these charging capacities in the next few years. The test cars will be joined in particular by employees’ company cars.
Charging stations will gradually mushroom not only in the plant complex, but also in the staff car parks. “By the end of 2019, we will have 488 charging points. By 2025, the plan is to put 7,000 charging points into operation at ŠKODA’s plants in the Czech Republic and in their immediate vicinity,” says project electrification coordinator Pavel Hanák.
