Wolfsburg – The Volkswagen subsidiary Elli is offering electric vehicle customers of the Group brands more comprehensive service. The wall boxes can now be purchased from the German Audi, SEAT, Cupra, ŠKODA Auto, Volkswagen and Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge dealerships. Through the new sales channel, Elli is continuing its strategy to offer a customer-friendly ecosystem for electric mobility. The new partner for in-store sales of the wall boxes is Volkswagen Original Teile Logistik GmbH & Co. KG (OTLG).
Until now, Elli has sold the wall charging stations exclusively on the Internet. The wall boxes are also available online in Italy, Sweden and Spain. Both the Connect and Pro wall charging stations can now be ordered from the German Audi, SEAT, Cupra and ŠKODA Auto, Volkswagen and Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge dealerships or configured as part of a new car purchase. Depending on what their offer includes, the local sales partner also provides an installation service.
Simon Löffler, CCO of Elli says: “We provide electric vehicle customers in Europe with everything they need to charge their vehicles quickly, conveniently and sustainably. We are now making our offer accessible on an even more individual basis through the dealerships. At the same time, we are reinforcing our local offering. In addition to the electric vehicle, dealerships can now also provide quality charging accessories from one provider.”
The wall box models are compatible with current and future electric vehicles of the Volkswagen brands as well as all cars from other manufacturers with a Type-2 connector. Other common features include a charging capacity of up to 11 kW and an integrated 4.5 or 7.5-meter-long charging cable. Both the Connect and Pro charger models connect to the Internet via WiFi, optionally also via LTE, allowing users to also control the wall box when on the move. What’s more, these two models can also be activated via app or charging card for particular users. The starting price for the wall boxes in Germany is 769 euros including VAT – both in the Elli Internet shop and from the dealerships.
