The Stop Shop retail network, operated by Immofinanz, is set to offer 116 high-performance electric charging stations at all of its 14 Hungarian locations, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
“The Stop Shop retail parks are well-accessible and provide large parking lots. It is this competitive advantage that Immofinanz has decided to further develop, as well as expand its existing services with electric charging stations. Customers will not only be able to shop easily, but they will also effectively use the time spent in the Stop Shop to charge their electric car. The cooperation between Immofinanz and the e-station, which aims to expand electromobility within regions and district towns,” says Viktor Nagy, Immofinanz country manager operations for Hungary.
All charging points have a capacity of 22 kW. The network of chargers was established thanks to a cooperation between Immofinanz and Emobility Solutions.
During the initial period, customers can use the service free of charge, and later on, payment will be made via a mobile application, among others.
"Emobility Solutions is also committed to exploiting the potential of sustainable energy management and we are working on other related developments in further cooperation. In case of interest, we will also make the Stop Shop charging network directly available to the customers of other electromobility service providers," added János Ungár, executive manager from Emobility Solutions.
"We are glad to participate in the development of the necessary infrastructure of electric vehicles in Hungary by building the e-charging station network in STOP SHOP retail parks and provided customers with more pleasant shopping by having this opportunity in the region too," added Viktor Nagy.
