Ikea to open 1000 new EV charging points

Ikea-owner Ingka Group has announced plans to expand its electric vehicle (EV) charger network.

The company is to open more than 1,000 new charging points by the end of 2024.

“We are on a journey to make it more convenient and accessible for the many people to travel with zero-emissions and we have the ambition by 2030 to reduce relative emissions from customers and co-worker travel and home deliveries by 50 per cent,” said Karol Gobczyński, climate and energy leader, Ingka Group.

Gobczyński said that the company reached its goal last year to provide access to EV charging stations in all stores where parking is provided.

The flat-pack furniture retailer will roll out 300 new EV chargers across Ikea Norway and 700 in Sweden.

The new EV chargers will be installed by operator Recharge.

Over 300 of the new charge points will house fast chargers, able to fully charge an electrical vehicle in 15-45 minutes.
