New industry agreement for easier electric car charging
Clearer prices and easier payment.
On 10 May, Mobility Sweden, Drivkraft Sverige and Swedenergy presented a new industry agreement that will mean clearer prices and easier payment for charging electric or hybrid cars at public locations.
The agreement establishes a common payment option between the different players in the market, making it easier for electric car owners to pay for charging. Unlike before, it will be possible to pay for charging with regular payment cards and avoid having to enter into an agreement with each charging provider. Individual electric car owners will cut down on the number of apps and memberships needed with the various providers.
