Iberdrola and Mercedes-Benz partner to boost sustainability mobility in Spain

News

Iberdrola and Mercedes Benz are strengthening their commitment to the electrification of transport following the signing of a strategic agreement that will allow both companies to continue to drive forward the roll out of electrical mobility in Spain, break entry barriers and promote “zero emissions” transport, by facilitating the move to electric vehicles.

The alliance is based on three pillars for the next 3 years, both in the home and companies charging segment and in the roll out of the public recharging network in the country. It means that Mercedes-Benz will include Iberdrola's mobility solutions - home and public charging - in the marketing process for electric vehicles in Spain. In the home, Iberdrola will supply and install recharging points for all customers of the new Mercedes-Benz EQ range and vans in a fixed-rate package, regardless of the specification of the home.

Also, Iberdrola will facilitate access to the public recharging network provided by the company under very special conditions, those established in its Energy Package, as well as including free charging for 6 months.

“The strategic agreement reached emphasises the importance of working together with all the players involved in sustainable mobility. With Mercedes Benz we have found a perfect ally with which to move forward in the start-up of recharging solutions to meet the challenges of electric mobility, based on clean energy free of CO2 emissions,” explained Ángeles Santamaría, CEO of Iberdrola España. “Electrification of transport, added to the unstoppable growth of electricity from sustainable sources, will make a decisive contribution in the fight against climate change, and will reduce pollution and increase energy efficiency.”

Roland Schell, President of Mercedes-Benz España, said, “Daimler is reaffirming its commitment to electric mobility with the creation of the EQ brand - and with the launch of its EQC model is beginning its journey into the future. Our objective is to support the transition from the internal combustion engine to the electric vehicle by facilitating the installation of charging points during the sales process. The signing of this agreement will allow Iberdrola and Mercedes-Benz España to combine their common interests to build solid foundations for a successful and strategically strong cooperation with a view to a sustainable future.”

The collaboration agreement allows both companies to combine forces with an offer that simplifies and facilitates the customers' decision to join the electric movement, allowing them to enjoy all the benefits of an electric vehicle from the moment of purchase. Customers of Mercedes Benz's new EQ range, moreover, will also be charging the batteries of their electric cars, both at home and companies and at the network of recharging points on the public highway installed by Iberdrola, with 100% green energy from clean generation sources, with a certified guarantee of renewable origin (GO).

Also, they will be able to charge easily with their mobiles using Iberdrola's charging apps for home and public charging, through which - in the latter case - drivers of electric vehicles can geo-locate, book and pay for their charging.

This strategic agreement is part of Iberdrola's plans to promote and lead the transition to sustainable mobility and the electrification of transport as an effective way to decarbonise the economy. The company is rolling out a Sustainable Mobility Plan that envisages the deployment of 25,000 electric vehicle charging stations in Spain by 2021, aimed at homes and businesses, as well as publicly accessible urban and suburban areas. The plan includes installing fast, super-fast and ultra-fast charging stations at least every 100 km on the country's main motorways and highways during 2019, reaching all provincial capitals and making it possible to drive all the way across Spain in an electric vehicle.
