Mercedes-Benz inaugurates first German charging hub in Mannheim
Mercedes-Benz's global charging network is rapidly expanding, with Mannheim being the fourth station in operation worldwide.
Mercedes-Benz officially opened its first proprietary German charging hub in Mannheim on Monday, November 27. The company aims to establish over 2,000 of its charging stations globally, equipped with more than 10,000 fast-charging points by the end of the decade.
At the Mannheim hub, six charging points, each boasting an output of 300 kW, are now operational, allowing electric vehicle owners to charge their cars and vans rapidly.
