EnBW advertises its HyperNetz with

Drive fully electric from Niebull near Sylt to Oberstdorf on the Austrian border – and charge ultra-fast on the way, without any app or charge card: This is the advertising of the energy supplier EnBW, which claims to have introduced the “AutoCharge” function. Unlike the classic charging process, there is no need to start via app or charging card. The vehicle is simply connected to the charging station and charging starts automatically – with the selected EnBW charging tariff and without additional costs. According to a company announcement, this option has been available at more than 1,400 EnBW quick charging points in the EnBW HyperNetz nationwide since November 2021.

EnBW thus offers drivers the largest AutoCharge-capable charging network in Germany. To use AutoCharge, customers only have to activate the function once in the EnBW mobility+ app. AutoCharge is available for all e-cars with the exception of vehicles from the Volkswagen, Skoda and Seat brands, for which the function is currently not activated by the manufacturer.

“The question of whether refueling or charging is easier is now off the table at the latest,” says Timo Sillober, who is responsible for e-mobility at EnBW: “Charging is now easier than ever: I go shopping and turn on my car a charging point. All I have to do then is connect the charging cable. Ready.“ Charge the car while shopping. Even with such offers, EnBW was able to win the “connect” test as the best electromobility provider in Germany for its EnBW mobility+ offer for the third time in a row. With functions such as AutoCharge, the company is constantly improving charging in the EnBW HyperNetz.

According to the company, the EnBW mobility+ app shows directly when searching for a location whether a charging point is compatible with AutoCharge. There is also a filter in the app for an overview of which locations offer the function. As before, AutoCharge charging processes would also be terminated via the app, at the charging station or in the vehicle. As usual, the charging processes are displayed live in the EnBW mobility+ app. Customers will also receive their billing via their app as usual.

  1. Works only with certain car brands (VW Z.B. not) and only to EnBW columns and also there only with DC plugs and not on the columns of the roaming partners. So just learned at Carmaniac. If it stays like it, the thing is just disappointing. Too bad, that’s not a meaningful progress.
