Enel X Installs 200 EV Chargers at McDonald Italia Chain
A new partnership between McDonald’s Italia and Enel X which, by the end of 2021, will see the installation of 200 charging points for electric vehicles inside the 100 McDonald’s car parks across Italy. Enel X's know how and cutting-edge technology is combined with the extensiveness of McDonald's restaurants, an exceptional alliance, which aims to facilitate the transition towards electric mobility and to underline the importance of a green footprint that both businesses have been prioritizing for several years.
Thanks to the new agreement signed by McDonald’s and Enel X, the JuicePole and JuicePump charging stations will be installed inside the car parks of McDonald's restaurants and will offer a new service to customers, allowing two vehicles to be charged simultaneously with available power of up to 22 kW in AC for the JuicePoles and of at least 50 kW in DC for the JuicePumps. With the latter, an average of about 30 minutes will be sufficient to "charge up" with electrical energy, the equivalent of the average time it takes McDonald’s customers to have a meal inside the restaurant.
The first charging stations installed at the McDonald's restaurants of Desio, Eboli, Loreto, San Benedetto del Tronto, Ancona and Osimo, of which the last three are already active and visible on the app, like for example JuicePass. The implementation plan will soon involve the new cities of Piombino, Barberino di Mugello, Alessandria, Quartu Sant’Elena and Florence.
