Paris/Lyon, October 6, 2023 – During the inauguration of TotalEnergies’ fifth 100% electric service station in France (Relais Garibaldi in Lyon), Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Pouyanné announced that the Company has now installed and operates more than 1,000 high-power chargers (HPC) for electrical vehicles nationwide. This significant milestone in electric mobility makes TotalEnergies the No.1 player in ultra-fast charging on France’s motorways and expressways.
As part of its strategy to support the development of electric mobility, TotalEnergies has already installed HPC points at more than 180 service stations in France. Its target for 2026 is to reach 500 stations:
- 200 stations on main roads and corridors (motorways and bypasses)
- 300 stations in cities, peri-urban and transit areas (airports, train stations, tourist zones, etc.), one third of which will be 100% electric, like the station inaugurated today in Lyon and those in Paris-La Défense, Metz, Courbevoie and Rouen.
High-power charging (HPC) is a technology that enables compatible electric vehicles to recharge at a power of over 50 kW and up to 300 kW. Depending on the type of vehicle, this power enable to restore a range of 100 kilometers in 6 minutes, and recharge around 80% of the battery in around 20 minutes.
Committed to offering electric vehicle drivers a seamless customer experience, TotalEnergies ensures that its high-power charging stations include comfortable waiting areas equipped with sanitary and catering facilities, WiFi and access to all major payment options. Staff will also be present at all stations to greet customers and provide information.
“By installing 1,000 HPC chargers, TotalEnergies has demonstrated its commitment to help French households transition to electric mobility,” said Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies. “With close to 250 stations equipped by end-2023, TotalEnergies will offer customers ultra-fasting charging every 100 kilometers in cities and on motorways, consolidating its position as a leader in this segment in France.”
Beyond its service stations, TotalEnergies operates around 18,000 charge points in France, spread across local municipalities, corporate fleets, peri-urban locations, parking lots and private residences.
