Audi will equip one in 10 parking spaces at its plants in Germany with electric vehicle charging facilities by the middle of 2022, and plans to make most of them accessible to the public.

With more than 4,500 charging points to be built, the project is the largest charging infrastructure works carried out by a German employer to date
The largest charging infrastructure project carried out by a German employer to date will see more than 4,500 charging points for battery-operated vehicles being constructed, contributing to the energy transition in private transport. At Audi's main plant in Ingolstadt alone, there will be 3,500 charging points available by the final stages of the project's development.

There will also be 1,000 charging points in Neckarsulm, and just under 100 in Brussels and Gyor. Likewise, charging infrastructure will be built at the factory in San Jose Chiapa. The company already offers expansive charging capacities at its training centre at Munich Airport. The entire project has a total budget of up to $149 million.

Currently, the sites in Brussels, Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm house a charging infrastructure with a total power output of 21MW. This corresponds to the power consumption of a small town with 14,000 inhabitants. The current infrastructure includes 600 charging points with an output of up to 22kW each and 60 direct current charging points with an output between 50 and 350kW.

The ambitious project will equip one in every 10 parking spaces at its German plants with charging infrastructure
By the middle of 2022, there will be 4,500 charging points each with an output of up to 22kW, and approximately 50 more with an output of up to 350kW each at the plant sites alone. An intelligent load-management system currently controls all power output across the sites, so the power supply network does not need expansion.

Audi has set itself the goal to become the leading CO2-neutral premium provider. By 2050 at the latest, the company's operations are to be entirely CO2-neutral.
