SPAR joins Hungary’s e-charging station network

February 10, 2020 IN THE CATEGORY: Environment, Responsible retailing

SPAR Hungary is now integrating its charging stations for electric vehicles into the national e-charging network Mobiliti. From February onward, information and payment options for the e-charging service will be available via the Mobiliti app.

Based on the partnership between SPAR Hungary and NKM Mobilitás Kft., the 33 charging stations at 17 SPAR hypermarkets and supermarkets will be operated through the Mobiliti charging service, available at the national network’s usual fee of less than €0,25 per kilowatt hour. This means that with an average consumption of 20 kWh/100km, electric vehicles charged at SPAR e-charging stations can drive 100km for about €4,75, which is quite favourable compared to other fuelling methods.

The e-charging service can be used after registration in the Mobiliti app. Charging costs can be settled by bank card.

“In the next few years, the number of electric cars is expected to increase significantly in Hungary. Considering the changing demands in this area, SPAR – with its professional partner, NKM Mobilitás Kft. – has been continuously expanding and improving its electric charging stations”, explained Márk Maczelka, Head of Communications at SPAR Hungary.

Currently, the national charging network comprises about 130 stations. By the end of this year, Mobiliti’s latest innovative technological solutions will be available at more than 60% of all e-charging stations nationwide.

“SPAR customers will not only be able to benefit from the discounts through this partnership at SPAR stores, but throughout the entire country”, Márk Maczelka added.

About SPAR Hungary

The first SPAR Supermarket opened in Hungary in 1992, following the acquisition by ASPIAG (Austria SPAR International AG) of a majority stake in General Kereskedelmi Rt. Since its launch, 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, with new stores meeting 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.
