Freedom for the electric driver

Fastned is building a European network of fast charging stations where all electric vehicles can charge as fast as possible. We believe this infrastructure is necessary for electric vehicle drivers to experience true freedom. 

A network of dependable & recognisable fast charging stations along highways and in our cities is necessary for the transition to sustainable electric mobility. A single fast charging station is able to charge hundreds of vehicles per day, resulting in a space-efficient and scalable model.

This is why Fastned is single-mindedly focussed on finding the right locations, building high-capacity fast charging stations and improving uptime & customer experience.

Our goals is a European network of 1000 fast charging stations on prime locations, where electric drivers can charge their vehicles with renewable energy from the sun and wind.

The internal combustion engine is a disaster for the climate and our health. Switching as quickly as possible to electric driving, in combination with renewable energy can avert climate change, and will make our cities cleaner and less noisy.
