Good news for all drivers (and future drivers) of electric vehicles, since a brand new network of fast charging stations is being set up in France. Indeed, alongside the vast Ionity network and other terminals currently scattered across the country, a brand new network called e-Vadea is about to see the light of day on our highways. A project led by the Ecological Transport Modernization Fund (FMET) and SPIE CityNetworks.
A new ultra-fast charging network in France
Thus, the new e-Vadea network is a national network of ultra-fast charging stations, which will include up to 12 charging points, accessible to any type of vehicle. No worries, therefore, if you drive a Tesla, Hyundai, Kia or Porsche, you will be able to take advantage of this new network without any compatibility problems.
SPIE and FMET, managed by DEMETER, will deploy the first stations of the new e-Vadea ultra-fast charging network.

From a geographical point of view, 13 stations will be installed initially, in the eastern part of the country. Each station will have a total of a dozen terminals, which will provide charging power ranging from 150 to 300 kW. The stations will be installed on the motorways going from the North-East quarter of the territory to Bordeaux and Monaco on the APRR and VINCI Autoroutes networks.
“From the definition of site potential, to the design/installation of terminals, including operation, maintenance and customer service (provided by its in-house ORIOS solution), SPIE controls the entire service and supply chain. value” explain the creators of this e-Vadea network. Note that access to the terminals will be done directly via a badge, or a simple bank card. No need for a subscription or special card, therefore, the simplification of the customer journey having been thought of as a priority here.
At present, the opening of the e-Vadea network is scheduled for the end of 2022. The prices have not yet been communicated. So be patient.
