In August 2020, the number of electric or hybrid vehicles in the Monegasque fleet amounted to nearly 7% of the fleet
Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Government Counselor - Minister of Equipment, Environment and Town Planning, went this morning to the Portier Parking to discover the electric service station and its new “MONACO ON". The locations dedicated to recharging electric vehicles can now be identified by their bright yellow tint.
In August 2020, the number of electric or hybrid vehicles in the Monegasque fleet amounted to nearly 7% of the fleet. Charging requirements multiply as does the required charging power. A conventional outlet with a ceiling set at 25 kWh, is equivalent to half the capacity of the last Zoe and nearly four times less than the capacities of high-end vehicles.
The Government is gradually replacing, in public car parks and on the road, self-service outlets with electric service stations grouping together several terminals. The objective: to respond to a demand for more powerful, faster recharging available to the greatest number. The Casino, Grimaldi Forum and Portier car parks are already equipped; that of the Fontvieille shopping center will soon be. A total of 91 fast charging stations are installed or being installed (71 7kva stations and 20 22 kva stations). On the road 9 sites offer: 11 fast charging stations, 7 semi-fast charging stations and 4 slow charging stations.
The plugs were already free and easy to use; the terminals will be more efficient and easily identifiable.
