The expansion plans of this network of battery exchange stations in the Old Continent are ambitious. We know that the brand has also opened a factory in Hungary to produce its infrastructure.

Currently, there are still very few active stations in the Old Continent. The last one is been opened in these days in Sweden and in December it will arrive; the first of the Netherlands.
