£50 to charge an I Pace? No-one is going to pay that. The question is whether other providers will follow this with price increases.

There is competition! I guess there will be different packages for frequent drivers in the future. Not necessarily directly from Ionoity but maybe from other card providers with a basic monthly fee.

I assume Ionity is betting on the fact that most people charge their EVs at home 90% of the time so charging up on the road for a ludicrous price (more expensive than gas) would be worth it for the convenience of fast charging.

However, this kinda goes against the whole notion of Ionity being this subsidized project to increase EV adoption.

I very rarely charge away from home so I could live with the pricing scheme. However, I can only imagine those who rely more on roadside rapid chargers would rethink their choice to go for an EV.

Lastly, it's shocking that Ionity's price model doesnt seem to account for the price of electricity in the different markets at all. They've basically just found a price point that makes sense in the worst case scenario and applied them to all markets.

Sorry, but this was inevitable and a shame that JLR didn't sign up for it. Of course if it's financed by a group of manufacturers, why should they give it to everyone for the same price? They're going to make it more interesting to their partners and their customers. Will be interesting to see the cost to fill up an eTron by comparison.

I'm sure Tesla are having a chuckle.
I thought they received some kind of EU subsidy installing the charging network. If true, I wonder on what conditions they received the subsidy.

So long Ionity. It was nice knowing you. Your sites will be ones to avoid from now on except in a dire emergency. Even then, I'd only charge enough to get to somewhere cheaper.

They will soon see the effect of their charging decision in the steep drop in usage. At those rates, they are really taking the piss (and selling it back to you as fine wine...)

69p/kWh is over FOUR times what I pay for leccy at home. I can understand 30-40p/kWh but 69p? Makes 50p at Shell Recharge look positively cheap.

Ionity, if you read this perhaps you might like to look up what happened to the Jeweller's 'Ratners' when their boss said that he sold crap.
If you really want to price yourself out of the market then go right ahead.

I will keep using them until January 31st, as the £8 per session is excellent value. After that? Have to see what circumstances arise. If Tesla superchargers wanted to open up at a similar charging rate for non-Tesla drivers, I would see that as a welcome enhancement to availability.

In the Times newspaper all this week they have been articles on electric cars(Electric Britain) , infrastructure & so forth. BP Chargemaster CEO said that the cost of installing 150kWH charger was around £75000.

In Norway, for the Audi E-tron there will be a contract where you pay NOK189,-/month + NOK3.20/kWh.

Other providers charge approximately NOK1.25/min + NOK2.90/kWh without contract
