To ensure that the battery installed in the charging station always has sufficient capacity, it is permanently fed by a conventional 16 to 63A power connection.
E.ON will operate the rapid chargers exclusively with green electricity.
Updates, remote maintenance and billing of the charging points will be carried out via E.ON’s central software platform.
VW said the technology meets all requirements for financial support under both EU and the German directives and complies with calibration law requirements.
Volkswagen Group Components will start series production this year.
In the second half of the year, E.ON will test the new charging points at six motorway filling stations and then launch them on the German market under the name E.ON Drive Booster.
