Tritium signs deal with Ionity

Tritium has signed with European electric car company Ionity, to supply its flagship Veefil-PK high power electric vehicle chargers.

EV company, Tritium says this is the largest deal for its flagship charger which will see an average of four to six chargers installed per site across more than 23 countries in Europe.

“Ionity has a vision for electric vehicle charging which mirrors ours. It’s not only just about the speed of the charge but the experience of customers,” said David Finn, chief executive officer and co-founder of Tritium.

“These chargers will soon be ubiquitous along the highways of Europe and ensure that the increasing number of EV owners across the continent will be able to drive whenever and wherever they want.”

Finn said the deal, which will included 24/7 remote and on-site support, will make Tritium one of the largest suppliers to the Ionity network, with the company set to supply its Veefil-PKs for more than 220 sites of the planned 400 sites across Europe.

“We were looking for an excellent strategic partner able to run with us from the start and scale up our operations in Europe,” said Michael Hajesch, CEO of Ionity.

According to Ionity, the rollout of the next wave of chargers is expected to be completed by 2020.
