Audi will invest around €100 million ($109 million) to electrify one in ten parking spaces at its German plants by mid-2022. The German carmaker will install 4,500 charging points in Germany, including 3,500 at its main plant in Ingolstadt and 1,000 at its plant in Neckarsulm, and almost 100 each at plants in Brussels, Belgium and Győr, Hungary. Many of these will be available to the public. Audi will also deploy charging infrastructure at its factory in San José Chiapa, Mexico.
Audi already has 600 22 kW charging points, as well as 60 DC fast charging points with an output between 50 and 350 kW, at the Ingolstadt, Neckarsulm, and Brussels sites. The company will use an intelligent load-management system to control power input, so it does not anticipate having to increase the power supply.
