Driving an electric car is becoming an increasingly popular choice, especially among people living in cities. However, electric vehicles require a good network of chargers for longer journeys so drivers can prepare and organize their journeys in advance. If there is a widespread charging infrastructure strategically located along highways and in cities—EV drivers will have less trouble.

In Serbia, a country that is increasingly following the development of green technology and renewable energy sources, there was a growth in tourism at the beginning of the summer. According to the latest data from the Statistical Office of the Republic of Serbia, in June, there was an increase in the number of tourists by 4.7 per cent compared to the same month of the previous year. Also, in the first five months of the current year, 1.4 million foreigners visited the country, representing an increase of 16.5 per cent compared to the same period in 2022. There is certainly a certain number of e-car drivers among the tourists, further emphasizing the need to develop good infrastructure. They need to be instilled with enough confidence that they can easily fill up their vehicles in any part of Serbia. Therefore, we see the indirect importance that a good network of chargers can have in areas that we might not initially think of, such as, in this case, tourism.


The company Charge&GO, dedicated to the vision of sustainable transport, continues to expand its network of chargers. A 240 kW electric charger is installed at the OMV—Metro filling station in Zemun. This charger, which was produced by Siemens, will be able to connect two electric vehicles that need fast charging simultaneously because it has two CCS sockets. If a certain premium model of an electric car, such as the Porsche Taycan, is connected to the charger of this power, charging at full power, within half an hour to an hour, the car will have a range of over 800 kilometers, which is an extraordinary calculation.

The infrastructure is already in place, the charger is ready to use and will be online in a few days.

Charge&GO continuously works on its mission, and among the last projects was the installation of chargers at the OMV filling station in Borska Street in Banjica. Its power is 120 kW, and it is also a Siemens model with two CCS connections. On the other hand, the company is waiting for the EPS’s approval to put the installed  ABB  charger into operation, with a power of 50 kW, within the OMV filling station on Ada Ciganlija. In this case, it will be possible to charge vehicles with European and Japanese connectors quickly. Apart from the chargers located on the territory of Belgrade, a 120 kW charger, a model produced by Siemens and which will soon be put into operation, is installed at the OMV filling station in Zaječar.

With the help of the first digital platform, finding available chargers and organizing trips certainly become simpler. Charge&GO enabled drivers to make a payment in one place, in addition to viewing the charger map. Users also have electric chargers available across the continent, given the partner network they are part of. After registration with the application, certain benefits can be obtained.

With electric cars and the infrastructure being developed by the company, drivers could reduce their expenses without sacrificing vehicle performance. Electromobility is an important topic for ecology, tourism, and traffic, as well as for individuals and countries. Expanding the network is an opportunity to participate in creating a world where roads are not only a means of connecting places but also the people, ideas and values that shape our future. Charge&GO can be proud of its contribution to this dynamic time of change and everything it does to make traveling by electric vehicles economical and tireless.
