On 13 December 2022, in Rome, Enel X Way and the Volkswagen Group announced the official launch of Ewiva, the largest ultra-fast charging network for electric vehicles in Italy.
Ewiva’s journey has finally started and on December 13th, during the launch event in Rome, Volkswagen Group and Enel X Way, the Enel Group’s global business line dedicated to electric mobility, officially announced the Joint Venture they founded together at the end of 2021.
Ewiva has the challenging goal of building and operating a widespread, reliable and high-power (up to 350 kW) charging network powered entirely by 100% renewable energy.
The network will involve city centres, suburban areas and main roads used by commuters and tourists, ensuring a simple and accessible user experience for all electric car drivers.
The launch event
A special event took place in Rome to celebrate the company’s launch, involving Ewiva, Enel X Way and Volkswagen Group’s Top Management, together with experts of sustainability, innovation and technology. It has been a great opportunity to get to know the values, mission and objectives of the new company, which is entering the Italian electric mobility market with a leading position in the ultra-fast recharging segment, and to discuss the main challenges and opportunities of the e-mobility development in Italy and Europe.
Ewiva’s first premium site at Via Flaminia 871 was also inaugurated, the largest in Rome and among the largest in Italy, with 14 charging points of up to 300 kW power each and a lounge open to all users.

Ewiva’s charging points network
The adventure has only just begun, but Ewiva has already established the largest nationwide ultra-fast charging network. To date, some 750 charging points have already been activated, available at more than 233 sites, and the development plan is constantly accelerating, increasing charging opportunities for electric vehicles to travel comfortably throughout the country, from North to South, East to West.
The e-mobility revolution accelerates and it is finally time to say, Ewiva!
