Charge up while out and about at an increasing number of public charging stations.

Wherever you happen to be on the road: you can charge your vehicle at countless public AC charging stations (alternating current) or at special DC fast-charging stations (direct current) such as IONITY.

In towns and cities, you already have a wide selection of public charging points. 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 power of up to 50 kW and thus the possibility to charge your vehicle in a short time.
On long-distance journeys, you benefit from a comprehensive charging network at service stations and motorway 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 fast-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.
