Volkswagen is building more than 300 electric car charging points at its German plants-charging

The automobile manufacturer Volkswagen wants to install more than 100 new charging stations, each with two plug connections, at its home location in Wolfsburg by April of this year. This means that there are charging options for more than 200 electric cars right at the main plant. A total of more than 100 additional charging points are being set up at other locations. The first of the new charging stations were officially put into operation a few days ago.

Only Volkswagen Naturstrom is used for charging at the new charging points. This is TuV-certified, 100 percent CO2-neutral green electricity, which mainly comes from hydroelectric power plants of the Viennese energy supplier Verbund AG. The charging points are not only available to Volkswagen employees, but also to external users. The charging process is activated and billed with the Charge & Fuel Card from VW Financial Services AG or via a smartphone app.

“With the development of the charging infrastructure, the Wolfsburg location is taking another step towards becoming a mobility provider. Employees who previously had no charging facility at home can now switch to electric vehicles. We will continuously check the use of this offer in order to further expand the charging infrastructure as needed.“ – Stefan Loth, Plant Manager VW Wolfsburg

In addition to the main plant in Wolfsburg, the car manufacturer is also installing new charging stations for electric cars at other locations. At the Transparent Factory in Dresden, where the VW e-Golf rolls off the assembly line, there are now 30 new charging points in addition to the ten that already exist. At the plant Emden, the number of charging points will soon be doubled to 24, in Salzgitter 36 charging points are to be set up in Braunschweig 16 and in Kassel 40.
