How Wolfsburg will become an e-mobility hotspot

How Wolfsburg will become an e-mobility hotspot

On Friday, Volkswagen congratulated its home town of Wolfsburg on its 80th birthday. The gift: Twelve mobile charging stations and further high investments. We show you how these work:

200 kWh strong, four vehicle slots and always ready for use exactly where they are needed. From spring next year, all citizens and visitors of the city of Wolfsburg will be able to recharge their e-vehicles and e-bikes at twelve mobile and further permanently installed charging stations – free of charge, uncomplicated and fast.

The electrifying birthday present was developed by Volkswagen's Components division as a high-performance battery pack that can both be connected to the local power grid and function completely autonomously as a power bank, making it flexible in terms of location. In a big football match, for example, sufficient charging points can always be available near the stadium – and elsewhere the next day.

Our explanatory film shows exactly how this works and why Wolfsburg is becoming an e-mobility hotspot:

12 quick-charging stations make e-mobility in Wolfsburg available free of charge at any time. Our video shows how it works and when it starts.
