E-charging station in front of a Migros branch.


Charge your car while shopping

We’re improving the situation for drivers of electric cars by creating 2,000 new Migrol charging points over the next few years.

What we do

Although Switzerland has an extensive network of public charging stations, there still aren’t enough private charging facilities. “Some 57% of people in our country live in rented accommodation,” says Krispin Romang, Managing Director of the industry association Swiss eMobility. “Not all apartment building owners are prepared to install a wallbox in the underground garage.” That’s why expansion of the network of public charging stations is all the more important.

Lots of new charging stations

We are now making a major contribution to this expansion – we already provide more charging stations for electric vehicles than any other Swiss retailer. Our subsidiary Migrol operates all charging stations at Migros locations and is strongly pushing ahead with the expansion of this network. There are currently 300 M-Charge charging stations available at around 200 Migros stores throughout Switzerland plus a further 30 charging stations at Migrol filling stations. Over 2,000 charging points are now set to be added to the M-Charge network over the next few years.

Various payment methods are accepted – Migrolcard, credit cards, debit cards and Twint. All locations are equipped with high-performance DC charging stations. Modern electric cars can be charged from 20% to 80% in half an hour at these stations. Customers can use this time fill their shopping bags in the supermarket and return to find an equally full battery afterwards.
