It’s two months since the first groundbreaking ceremony for the first Audi Charging Hub in Nuremberg. Shortly before Christmas is the official opening of the modern fast charging station with reservation of high-power-charging loading places before. The Charging Hub is to become a contact point for the E motorists who can not load at home. In addition, perspective peak requests are to be served when loading in the urban environment.

Already in advance, the car manufacturer gave to understand that one with the pilot location his new charging concept was tested for the first time in practice. Ralph Hollmig, project manager for the Audi Charging Hub, expresses itself as follows: “We want to test a flexible and premium fast load infrastructure in urban space. We go there where our customers do not necessarily wake up in the morning with a fully charged electric car, and at the same time think of the in the future increasing loading requirement.”

As the basis for the Audi Charging Hub serve so-called cubes. The flexible container cubes should meet various technical requirements and accommodate next to charging columns, including used lithium-ion batteries as power storage. Through the use of 2ND-LIFE modules that come from disassembled developing vehicles, the battery cells are not only fed to sustainable second usage – a big advantage is above all in their property as a buffer memory for DC. Furthermore, the cubes enable it to be rebuilt and reduced in a few days on existing surfaces. In detail, the cubes per unit offer two quick loading points and can be combined in different constellations.

An approximately 2.45 MWh cache is responsible for the charging points in Nuremberg only require a 200 kW green flow port. The 200 kW satisfy the memory modules continuously. Photovoltaic modules on the roof also deliver up to 30 kW green energy. At the six charging points can load electric cars with up to 320 kW power. So it should be possible that up to 80 vehicles in the day. From then on, the capacity of the power store would come together with the 200 kW connection power to its limits.

A real alternative to domestic shop is the Charging Hub of Audi, if you have signed a corresponding E-Tron Charging Service Treaty. Because then you charge regardless of the tariff for currently 31 cents per kilowatt hour. “We offer the shop for people in urban space at the price, which will also be due for the store at the local wallbox,” says Hollmig. The Audi Charging Hub in Nuremberg is an open charging location. The entrance area is accessible to drivers of other manufactories.

The focus of the testing starting in Nuremberg is the new reservation function, the expectations of the Kund_innen to a premium loading experience as well as technical aspects such as the requirements for modern battery storage. In addition, Audi wants to find out on which daytime the facility is particularly frequented. The goal is to establish the Audi Charging Hub with appropriate added value.

For this reason you can not only load your own vehicle on the first Audi Charging Hub. There is also a bargain station for e-bicycle batteries, a loan service for e-scooters, information about various Audi products and test drives with the Audi Q4 E-TRON and RS E-TRON GT, which are supervised by Audi Expert_innen. In addition, Audi offers a just-in-time delivery service for food and a high-quality machine gastronomy and mobile car care. On about 200 m² area you can relax in the lounge and switch off until your own electric car can be switched on again.

  1. For me, that’s nothing and I’m afraid that my Skoda charging card does not lead to favorable rates there.
    An attempt is worth this concept in any case and it’s nice to see that the Second-Life use of the batteries takes their way.
    It is also appealing for the customer if the manufacturers use the Group batteries for another 15 years – this brings a high residual value for used cars.

    Gloome looks again for the small manufacturers. For the small accumulating accumulations, the development of a Second-Life market is not worthwhile in this measurement. It remains only recycling in the shredder and that’s a pity.
    I also suspect that the batteries / cells of MG and Aiways are not much value on the used parts market, because the kids are experienced by flotters throughout the batteries can be degraded.

  2. From the point of view of premium manufacturers, this may be a meaningful concept and I also welcome this project. More important but will be that the wide mass of the (future) BEV driver is at a maximum of 59c. For this I like to refrain from comfort, staying 15 minutes in the car and check my mails. At home load for 30c, but for 79c, Mr. Hinz and Mr. Kunz will not participate. 16 € for 100km ride, this bill has a devastating effect.

  3. Applause Applause and a great praise for Audi that it wants to open these hubs for drivers of all brands.

    I’m really looking forward to the long faces of the Audius or Porsche premium customers when 4 of the “lush” 6 charging points of 2x e-up, 1x ID3, and an Audi plugin are occupied.

    Since not even a Tesla would have to be there – but there is also one or the other &# 128521;

    Let’s just look at it very relaxed
