Volkswagen Sachsen is massively expanding the charging infrastructure-massively

Volkswagen is aiming for a rapid breakthrough in e-mobility and is also stepping up its efforts in charging infrastructure. The group will build a total of 36 across Europe by 2025.000 charging points, 11 of them.000 by the Volkswagen brand. The charging stations will be installed at VW locations and at around 3.000 Volkswagen dealerships in all major cities. In Wolfsburg, the charging infrastructure for electric cars has been supplemented by 40 pillars, now Saxony will follow with more than 400 charging points by the end of 2020.

Volkswagen Sachsen is massively expanding its charging infrastructure for electric vehicles at the three locations in Zwickau, Dresden and Chemnitz. In Zwickau it is now the 200. Charging point of all three Saxon plants has been put into operation. By the end of 2020, the number is expected to double to more than 400 charging points. A good third of this is at the Zwickau/Mosel location, with 70 more in Dresden and 30 in Chemnitz. For the most part, VW has designed the charging stations for 11 kW, which are primarily to be used by Volkswagen employees, guests and customers. Some will also be created in public parking areas around the locations.

“With the ID.3, Volkswagen is starting the era of electromobility. This also includes an adequate charging infrastructure. We don’t just talk about it, we become more active ourselves. We assume that around 30 percent of all charging processes take place at the workplace. This is why corporate engagement is so important.”- Reinhard de Vries, Managing Director and Logistics of Volkswagen Saxony

However, VW also makes it clear that the 400 planned charging points are only an intermediate goal. Important: All charging stations are fed with electricity that comes 100 percent from renewable sources. De Vries also indicates that the expansion of the infrastructure supports the sustainable mobility of its own employees. “Because charging at work is key to the breakthrough of electromobility,” continues de Vries.

In addition to permanently installed charging stations, VW gave a glimpse into the future on Boxing Day, when the search for charging stations for electric cars will come to an end. Because if the Wolfsburg-based company has its way, the mobile charging robot from Volkswagen Group Components should take over the charging of e-cars. Completely autonomous, no matter where it is parked.

  1. That all sounds great, but as long as I have no chance as a tenant, I have to install a wallbox in the community garage at your own expense, the whole of the whole is only patchwork.
    My next two charging points are 1.5 and 2 kilometers away.

  2. I hope that with the “shop at work” will also spread to other companies. This could help many lantern parkers and they could then also enjoy the potential of the e-car in everyday life, never having to charge extra.

  3. Somehow they have to get the “booth” to you.
    For me, they’re just disposable cars.
    My boss has 5 electric cars in the yard, 2 of which are demonstration cars, mostly used for company trips. And the other 3 are economically dead after 4 years where the manufacturer argues who pays the 6000 € for the battery .
    So there is €50,000 hazardous waste lying around, which costs money every month.
    I love my 20 year old car.

  4. Most of the time, company cars, especially Tesla’s, are extremely stressed. The users do not care carefully with the vehicles. Only those who are personally liable for all damage pay attention to the vehicle.
    I’ve heard some talk disparagingly about Tesla who were allowed to use it sporadically from the vehicle pool. But if the vehicle was personal, everyone was very satisfied.
    As for the charging infrastructure….Yes, it would be best if every employer had to provide every employee with a charging station, at least half a day. But that is probably utopia. The state is asked to make electric mobility possible for Lantern Parker as well.
