The importance of fast charging infrastructure in promoting the adoption of electric cars

One of the decisive factors in the spread of e-mobility is the widespread presence of charging stations, but they must be high-performance, thus minimizing the time it takes for travelers to recharge their electric vehicles. So let's try to shed some light on this issue by starting to learn about Free To X's own ultrafast charge columns.

What are ultrafast charging stations?

Long charging times for electric cars have long been an obstacle to the spread of e-mobility, prompting industry players to invest in finding solutions that would optimize this process.
These efforts led to the spread of fast and ultra-fast charging stations , a new and faster way to recharge electric cars, lowering the time for a full charge to 15 to 20 minutes.
The reduction in charging time combined with batteries with greater range has provided a significant new impetus for the spread of electric mobility in our country and beyond.

Now that fast charging technology is making great strides, it is equally important that the infrastructure keeps pace. For this to happen, charging stations need to be spread throughout Italy.
With as many as 100 fast charge stations, the Free To X network of charging stations is contributing to the transformation of mobility in Italy, bringing benefits to citizens and the environment.
Any numbers on our columns?

  • 100 rapid charging stations (increasing)
  • 15-20 minutes charging time
  • Up to 400kW of power
  • 100% green energy


Can fast charging infrastructure become an opportunity?

That the expansion of the electric car charging network represents a great opportunity is not in dispute, because the benefits to the environment, citizens, businesses, and government are particularly significant in several respects:

  • Growing adoption of electric vehicles: as environmental awareness and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions increase, more and more people and governments are considering the adoption of electric vehicles.
  • Convenience and rapidity: fast-charging stations offer motorists the ability to recharge their cars quickly and conveniently, greatly reducing waiting times compared to slower charging stations.
  • Increased range: increased availability of fast charge stations may also increase electric vehicle drivers’ confidence in traveling long distances, eliminating range anxiety.
  • Reducing emissions: increased use of electric vehicles, made possible by an adequate charging infrastructure even for long-distance drivers such as the one built by Free To X, contributes to the reduction of harmful emissions and local and global environmental impact.
  • Development of new technologies: rapid charging infrastructure can be a driver for technological innovation, encouraging the development of more efficient batteries, advanced energy management systems, and faster charging technologies.
