Urban mobility is one of the main problems faced by large cities. The high levels of pollution that we can move and at the same time with the excessive traffic that some capitals have, has made one of the most important sustainable travel routes is the electric one. This is characterized by reducing the carbon footprint in the environment, although it usually has major problems. Under this premise, firms with Audi have been working to develop sophisticated charging systems or centers for large cities, where users will be able to recharge their cars without any problem.
Under this premise, Audi Charging Hub was born, which has concluded with great success the first phase of a surprising project that will give very good results. Located in Nuremberg, regular customers of this Charging Hub have welcomed the sophisticated idea. The Audi charging hub is intended for drivers who use their electric cars mainly in the city, and they can’t recharge at home. From the second half of the year, a second Audi charging hub will be opened in the pilot phase in the centre of Zurich, followed by others in Salzburg and Berlin.
With a total of 3100 charging sessions in four months, the Nuremberg plant has six high-power charging points, which means an average of 24 loads of about 800 kWh per day. The room of almost 200 square meters, with a terrace of 40 square meters installed on the modules that form the Audi charging hub, received an average of 35 clients each day; a figure that is increasing. This type of installation are flexible containers can be assembled and disassembled in a short time. The energy is stored in recycled lithium-ion batteries, known as second-life batteries, from test vehicles.
Run its course
Audi has not been slow to present its work plan for the next two years and is thate in 2023 and 2024 they plan to officially present and put into operationor the Audi Charging Hub in Germany. Of course, you will still have to wait to discover their locations.
