SPAR Hungary expands e-charging network

January 13, 2021 IN THE CATEGORY: Environment, Responsible retailing

After the successful launch of an e-charging network in January 2020, SPAR Hungary continues to expand its nationwide network in cooperation with partner NKM Mobilitás Kft. This is another example of SPAR Hungary implementing innovative solutions that contribute to environmental sustainability and provide high-quality service to customers.

Based on this partnership, 33 charging stations at 17 SPAR Hypermarkets and Supermarkets were initially made available. The Mobiliti charging service is available at the national network’s usual fee of less than €0,25 per kilowatt hour. With an average consumption of 20 kWh/100km, electric vehicles charged at SPAR e-charging stations can drive 100km for about €4,75. This cost is quite favourable compared to other fuelling methods.

Information and payment options for the e-charging service are available via the easy to use Mobiliti app. Charging costs can be settled by bank card.

In the course of 2020, the e-charging network was extended in response to consumer needs. At 20 selected SPAR Super- and Hypermarkets, 48 charging stations with a maximum charging capacity of 2×22 kW were connected to the system.

About SPAR Hungary

The first SPAR Supermarket opened in Hungary in 1992. This followed the acquisition by ASPIAG (Austria SPAR International AG) of a majority stake in General Kereskedelmi Rt. SPAR Hungary has been actively involved in the development of the retail industry in the country.

The move to license independent retailers to operate the SPAR Brand has proven successful for Hungary. New stores ensure the company meets the needs of a larger number of shoppers. The retailers benefit from becoming part of the SPAR organisation with access to own brand products, operating systems and the brand, whilst consumers enjoy the increased number of store locations.
