Two new fast-charging points for electric vehicles are now in operation as part of the EU-funded Corri-Door project, which aims to enable an interoperable fast charging network in France and Europe.

The new charging points were installed at two motorway rest stops, Bosgouet Nord and Tardenois Nord in the regions of Normandy and Picardy respectively.

Users can now fully charge their electric vehicles in less than 30 minutes.

They are the first of a pilot deployment of 200 charging stations on major French motorways, which will be completed in December 2015.
