Charging with Audi
Whether it’s charging options at home, route and range planning, or the multitude of different providers and access to charging stations on the road, e-mobility raises questions that confront newcomers to the world of electric vehicles. As a premium supplier, Audi takes a holistic approach and has had its customers’ needs in the field of electric-powered mobility in mind since the launch of the Audi e-tron* in 2019. For example, when it comes to home charging solutions, Audi advises customers and even arranges an installation service upon request. In addition, Audi has access to more than 400,000 charging points across Europe through its forthcoming Audi charging, which will be launched in 2023, and is committed to expanding the use of green power. Furthermore, IONITY – in which Volkswagen, with its Porsche and Audi brands, has a stake – continues to expand its charging network in Europe. An overview.
New Audi charging hub opens in MunichAudi has opened a new Audi charging hub in Munich’s Obersendling district. Brand ambassador Felix Neureuther, who was present at the opening, was very happy about the charging offering. The brand with the four rings has recently begun cooperating with &Charge, a company that enables users to publicly rate charging stations and rewards them for doing so. A pilot project is being launched at the Audi charging hub in Nuremberg with the aim of adding an augmented reality experience to the digital ecosystem.
Quick charging in downtown Berlin: Latest Audi charging hub uses existing infrastructureAudi is opening its third charging hub: Following on from the Nuremberg and Zurich locations, the brand with the four rings now turns to a local partner company in Berlin, using the existing power supply there. The neighboring Frischeparadies, with its attractive shopping market and gourmet bistro, is acting as a cooperation partner and providing its power connection for use by the hub. In the future, Frischeparadies and the Audi charging hub will get their power from a shared power line, on a needs- and load-oriented basis. Equipped with second-life batteries, the charging station will only charge the buffer batteries when Frischeparadies requires little power. The smart, dynamic load control system Audi has developed in-house thus ensures efficient use of the existing power infrastructure. In selecting the location, Audi relied on an in-house data analysis to determine on-site demand in advance.
