Fastned: a growing network

Fastned wants to stand out in the charging operator market by offering the best possible charging experience. Its stations have an evolving architecture, and are recognizable from afar thanks to their yellow colored “canopy” roof:

“Design is central to designing the charging experience at Fastned. We have been constantly improving it because we believe it has a direct impact on the adoption of electric vehicles. Over the years we have developed our scalable designs to allow more and more EV drivers to enjoy our stations. The La Maxe station is an excellent example of a station designed to accommodate hundreds of vehicles per day: it allows a high flow of traffic, facilitates access to chargers and offers the best overall charging experience for the customer”says Maria Garcia, Head of Localization and Design at Fastned.

With the advent of electric cars, Fastned’s stations can accommodate hundreds of vehicles every day, and are located in strategic locations, including on or near highways. Over the years, the average number of chargers per station has increased from 4 (end of 2021) to 5.1 (end of 2022). Last year, nearly 50 stations were upgraded to meet growing demand.
