project kicks off with A1 e-tron in Munich

20 Audi A1 models now on Munich streets

CO2-free mobility with power

As of today, 20 units of the A1 e-tron are on the roads of the Munich region. Some trial even got the keys to their cars weeks ago. E.ON, the public utility München and Technische Universität (TUM) are project partners in fleet trial.

E.ON and SWM are in of expanding and maintaining the charging in the Munich metropolitan area.

As a gesture, Audi handed the A1 e-tron fleet vehicles to its project partners and trial E.ON and SWM have installed a charging infrastructure; SWM within the capital’s city limits and primarily in outlying areas. All fueling stations offer generated via renewable energies. fleet trial is part of the Elektromobilität München (Electric in Munich as a Pilot Region) sponsored by Germany’s Federal of Transport, Building and Urban The Ministry is providing the region some ten million euros for mobility.

This project will a number of issues, ranging the power grid itself to transfer between drivers, and electric fueling stations. For the use of a smartphone as a driver’s main will be examined.

Audi relentlessly on comprehensive approaches maximize benefits to customers. In era of electric mobility, we will our customers a wide range of which go beyond driving For example, the networking of vehicles their surroundings and with as well as new concepts of mobility be important, emphasizes Franciscus van Head of Electric Mobility at AUDI AG. He adds: We want to use fleet trial to learn about our customers’ usage of cars, and their expectations in regard.

We are planning additional fleet in strategically important markets.

The A1 e-tron is an electric car with a extender. Its output of 75 kW (102 hp) the A1 e-tron to reach a top speed of 130 (80.78 mph). If the battery out of energy, then a compact engine the range extender the battery as needed to boost the operating range to as much as 250 km miles). This compact car is a zero-emissions vehicle for the first 50 (31 miles) of a trip in city for instance. The battery comprises a of lithium-ion modules mounted in the assembly in front of the rear

In short, the four-seat A1 e-tron was for daily driving in metropolitan It consumes a mere 1.9 l/100 km US mpg), for a CO2 equivalent of just 45 (72.42 g/mile)*.

As Ruth Head of Electric Mobility at AG, emphasizes: The fleet trial started today will add to the expertise we have been during more than ten projects for electric mobility in six countries. We have blazed new in the charging infrastructure. We have set up not public charging points large cities but also charging points at multi-level lots in city centers.

Drivers simply insert parking-lot tickets to use the charging and then pay for their electricity with the parking fee.

has already developed commercially charging solutions for various For example, the company markets a to private individuals in Germany: power and a charging box for use at home. But first conducts a safety of these customers’ electrical After all, not every outlet and its wiring is designed to the heavy loads associated recharging an electric vehicle for E.ON also supplies stations open to the general primarily commercial customers.

At stations, two electric cars can their batteries at the same via different charging points. cards grant drivers Both types of electric stations are being used in the fleet trial.

In addition, E.ON is fostering the enhancement of charging technology by on direct-current (DC) fast as well as cable-free charging.

Dr. Bieberbach, Commercial Director at We have been working partners for quite some on various projects concerning electric mobility. As the operator of and subway trains, we have than 115 years of electric-mobility in public transportation. SWM is responsible for the infrastructure within Munich limits; we also offer the power which facilitates driving.

The foundation for this was by our Renewable Energies expansion We want to generate enough electricity by 2025 to supply the Munich metro area electricity. Munich is thus on to become the world’s first of a million-plus inhabitants to achieve ambitious goal.

TUM is collecting and analyzing data on mobility during the project. In situations do people drive cars and to what degree? And how this technology influence the use of means of transportation?

To answer questions, the departments of Automotive and of Ergonomics have developed a application that all fleet-trial can use on their smartphones. More these devices will document participants’ mobility from their use of bicycles electric cars and combustion-engine vehicles to buses and trains. At the time, the Department of Services is conducting a study to ascertain models for billing electric-mobility

For researchers, it is no longer a question of electric mobility will on, but rather when. Electric constitutes a paradigm shift for and society alike. This trial allows us to learn about people’s mobility under a new set of circumstances, says Markus Lienkamp at TU Munich’s of Automotive Engineering.

Insights from this can then serve as the basis for approaches to sustainable individual
