More and more public charging stations for charging en route.

Wherever you happen to be: there are numerous public AC charging stations (alternating current) or special DC rapid charging stations (direct current) such as those from IONITY where you can charge your vehicle.

In towns and cities there are, of course, also plenty of public charging points to choose from. You'll find these in multi-storey car parks, in supermarket car parks or even at roadside parking spaces. These charging stations offer a charging capacity of up to 50 kW and therefore the chance to recharge your vehicle within a very short space of time.
On long-distance journeys you can benefit from an extensive charging network at motorway services and parking areas. With an available charging capacity of up to 350 kW, you don't even have to plan long breaks for charging .

Find the quickest route, including charging stops.

Even longer journeys in your electric vehicle are not a problem, thanks to Navigation with Electric Intelligence. The system takes into account factors such as charge level, weather and traffic situation to calculate the best route - including stops for charging, if necessary. Wherever possible, it schedules the use of rapid charging stations in order to keep the necessary charging stops as short as possible. Once you reach the charging station, you are given specific details of how long charging will take and notified via the Mercedes me App as soon as the charge level is sufficient for you to continue on your journey - thus ensuring that you reach your destination as quickly as possible.
