Spar opens 66 free charging points for shoppers in Hungary

Spar free charging Hungary EVBox

Supermarket chain Spar takes electrification in Hungary very seriously, expecting the EV market to grow fast in the central European country. As a first step, it has installed 66 charging points at 17 high traffic locations throughout Hungary.

These will initially be free of charge for Spar shoppers. Especially in a country where one third of the population lives in apartment buildings, with limited access to private charging stations, many EV drivers are dependent on (semi-) public chargers, Spar reckons.

The charging stations are provided by EVBox through its partner NKM. EVBox is operational in over 55 countries worldwide and belongs to French power company Engie.
