Endolla Barcelona plans to have 1,000 charging points operational by the end of 2023. 283 new points will be incorporated all around the city over the year, joining the 717 now in service. 

The new charging points will be located in B:BSM car parks, where 7 out of every 10 existing points are already concentrated.
