Aldi Suisse has partnered with Gofast to install fast-charging stations for electric cars at around 150 of the 240 Aldi outlets across Switzerland, starting in the summer of 2024.

Initially, Gofast aims to add eight charging points per store, which can be expanded to 16, depending on the store’s size and demand, the company noted.

Through this initiative, Aldi Suisse seeks to become the first Swiss supermarket chain to roll out a nationwide fast-charging network for electric cars.

The new stations will feature ‘High Power Charging’ columns with a charging power of up to 300 kW per charging point. This will allow drivers to charge up to a range of 200 kilometres in just ten minutes.

On average, it only takes 25 minutes to charge a battery, the discounter noted. It will use eco-friendly Swiss electricity to charge the vehicles.

Payments will be accepted via credit cards, common e-mobility cards, or through apps, the retailer added.

This collaboration between Aldi and Gofast will make it easier and more convenient for electric car owners to charge their vehicles while shopping.

Gofast is a provider of fast-charging solutions in Switzerland, with a network of over 100 fast-charging stations across the country.
