MSP, CPO – What does it mean?

The electric vehicle market is made up by different parties. There is the Mobility Service Provider (MSP) and the Charge Point Operator (CPO).

IONITY is a CPO and operates the charging network, provides the delivery, the installation and maintenance of the charging points. IONITY does not provide RFID chips or charging cards. These are available from various MSPs. The MSP sells mobility products and services, such as a charging subscription, the corresponding charging card or RFID chip and / or an app. In this case, the payment for your charging session will take place via the MSP.
