The NürnbergMesse and Audi have launched a joint construction of the world’s first ‘Audi Charging Hub’. The hub, they hope, will be a modern fast charging station with a lounge area built at the exhibition grounds in Nuremberg.
The structure, which is scheduled to be completed in the northern part of the Messe by the end of November, will have six reservable high-power charging points and a directly adjacent lounge area.
State minister Albert Füracker said: “Climate protection is one of the Bavarian state government’s top priorities. This is where every part of society must pull in the same direction. For an extensive state like Bavaria, sustainable mobility is simply indispensable.”
Dr Fleck added: “We’re very pleased at our one-two play with Audi. Together we’re blazing a trail for decarbonising the mobility structure.”
