To discover how much it will cost to charge an EV from an IONITY charge point, head to Zapmap’s Public Charging Calculator. This allows you to select any new or used plug-in vehicle, and tailor elements – such as electricity cost and charge required – for personalised results.


How to use IONITY charge points

Access to the IONITY network is via RFID card, smartphone app, or QR code. In the future, access to IONITY points will be able to be carried out simply by plugging the EV in, with communication between car and charger activating the session and billing the user.


Where are IONITY charge points located?

All IONITY points can be found on Zapmap by using the network filter. This can be used on the desktop and mobile apps, and displays only those points operated by IONITY.

Charging types and speeds can be filtered too, showing only those points that are compatible with users’ cars.

Select 'Filters' -> 'Networks' -> 'IONITY' to view only IONITY charge points.

How does IONITY compare to other networks in terms of pricing?

Zapmap monitors the prices of charging on the public network and reports on the prices charged by the top 10* rapid charging networks. The prices are updated on a monthly basis here: Rapid Charging: Top 10 Network Pricing

The price to charge an electric vehicle (EV) on the public charging network can vary substantively, and prices are increasing due to current issues in the energy market.
Updated on a monthly basis, the Zapmap Price Index shows the difference in prices paid depending on the type of charger and will also track how this is changing over time.
