To promote the spread of electric mobility, Enel intends to invest up to 300 million euros for the construction of 14 thousand columns throughout Italy by 2022, half of which will already be active in 2020. The objective is to create a capillary network for charging electric vehicles with 22 or 50 kW columns flanked by stations with powers up to 350 kW.

In addition to this, Enel is collaborating with Ionity for the installation and management of 20 sites with ultrafast columns in Italy, each of which will host six columns able to charge an e-tron in half an hour. The e-tron is just the first of 12 electric models that Audi will launch on the market by 2025. The SUV, proposed in Italy with prices starting from 83,930 euros, has an all-wheel drive system with 408 hp engines powered by a 95 kWh battery, enough to guarantee a range of more than 400 km in the WLTP cycle. In addition to full electric, however, the Casa dei Quattro Anelli aims to launch a new range of hybrids: in the coming years all Ingolstadt models will have at least one electrified variant. At the same time, the Volkswagen Group will gradually convert to the electric, launching a total of 80 new models by 2025, 50 of which will be pure electric, while 30 will have powertrain plug-in hybrids. Finally, by 2030, each of the 300 models of the various brands under the aegis of the German giant will have at least one electrified version.
