Increase in EV sales leads to mega turnover Fastned

Increase in EV sales leads to mega turnover FastnedFast-charging company Fastned has seen its turnover rise to enormous heights in the third quarter of this year. Turnover rose in the first nine months of this year by no less than 96 percent to €3.2 million. According to Fastned, the increase in turnover is related to the ever-increasing sales of electric cars.

In the first three quarters of last year, the turnover of Fastned, operator of fast charging stations in Europe, amounted to €1.6 million. Fastned saw its turnover increase by no less than 96 percent in the first three quarters of this year to €3.2 million. The fact that there are more and more electric cars on the road that also need to be supplied with fresh power can be identified as the main reason for the increase in turnover. Fastned also says that its growing charging network, which is of course related to this, has played a role. Attention numbers enthusiasts, Fastned offers an interesting insight into what happened behind the scenes.

Fastned has pumped a total of 5.5 GWh (gigawatt hours) into electric cars in the past three quarters, an increase of 89 percent compared to the same period last year. The number of active users of Fastned stations has increased by 88 percent in the past nine months to 88,830, all of which have accounted for 282,000 charging sessions. That was 66 percent more than in the first three quarters of 2020. It must be said that, of course, there was relatively little driving in 2020 due to the measures.
