Selected during a call for tenders, the Metropolis consortium begins to deploy its network of terminals within the Metropolis of Greater Paris. Ultimately, 5,000 locations will be installed for electric and plug-in hybrid cars.
Top start for the network of terminals of the Greater Paris Metropolis. Headed by Métropolis, this project ultimately aims to deploy 5,000 locations for electric and plug-in hybrid cars – including 250 fast ones – in 130 territories, by 2022. The capital is not concerned, since Paris does not collaborate with Métropolis for the establishment of its network, but Total.
The first municipality concerned by the Metropolis terminals is called Rueil-Malmaison: this agglomeration of the Hauts-de-Seine department will welcome the very first stations from the end of 2020, and will include some. in fine 19, reports the Committee of French Automobile Manufacturers (CCFA), which cites the Auto Journal.
Several other Parisian suburban towns will also benefit in the near future, such as Juvisy-sur-Orge (91), Issy-les-Moulineaux (92), Antony (92), Sevran (93), Aulnay-sous -Bois (93), Vincennes (94) and Santeny (94). Sixty stations for 300 charging points will be set up there.
Metropolis: charging power and tariffs
Behind Metropolis, hides a trio of companies made up of SIIT (investment company specializing in public infrastructure), e-Totem (industrial and operator of charging stations) and SPIE (infrastructure specialist). They are the ones who fully fund the project, not the partner cities. These last “collect fees for the installation and operation of the service“, Notes the Auto Journal.
Three types of terminals will make up the offer:
- Metropolis Proximity: up to 7.4 kW of power;
- Metropolis Citadine: up to 22 kW of power;
- Métropolis Express: up to 150 kW of power.
Rest assured: no subscription is necessary to take advantage of it, although a monthly flat rate of 45 euros for 100 kW will be on the menu, “which will represent around 6 euros for 100 km», Continues the Journal Auto. For the rest, the official site clearly presents the tariffs applied according to the power of the charger.
