Belgrade, 07.11.2022. - The companies OMV and Charge&GO continue to improve the network and availability of chargers for electric vehicles in our country. Three new electric rechargers are now available at OMV gas stations in Doljevac, Gradina and Bačka Topola 1. Previously, electric rechargers were installed at Lapovo Sever and Martinci 1 filling stations. That is a total of five chargers in cooperation with the company Charge&Go.
„We see an increased number of electric vehicles, and expanding the electric rechargers network is part of our strategy.Electric mobility is here to stay. In addition to the electric chargers at the Martinci 1 gas station, the charger at our station in Bačka Topola 1 is now one of the most powerful electric recharger in Serbia, with an output of 180 kW, which further reduces the speed of vehicle charging. The new charger at the OMV station Doljevac has a power of 150 kW, the same as the new charger at the Gradina station - said Decebal Sorin Tudor, general director of OMV Serbia”.
OMV is putting effort to reach over 2,000 recharger points at OMV filling stations throughout Europe, on highways and near major cities, from 2023 to 2030. Thanks to the cooperation between OMV Serbia and Charge&GO, the highways in Serbia are getting more and more charging points, which will make travel easier for domestic EV owners. Additionally, the drivers of electric cars in transit through Serbia will also have a place to charge their vehicle while taking a break to rest and refresh.
