With Elli Volkswagen become a power supplier
Volkswagen Group is establishing Elli, a new company for energy offerings and charging solutions underlining its strategic goal of becoming a leading provider of sustainable mobility. Elli Group with headquarters in Berlin is to develop products and services connected with energy and charging for the brands of the Group.
As one of the world’s largest automakers, Volkswagen is going to force the pace of the urgently needed transport and energy transition to emission neutral e-mobility. The new company will play its part with energy offerings from renewable sources and smart charging solutions.
Thorsten Nicklaß, designated CEO of Elli, announced that the new Volkswagen Group company would also offer to customers outside the Group green power from renewable sources that was 100 percent CO2 neutral.
Elli will gradually be building up a portfolio of intelligent power tariffs, Wallboxes and charging stations as well as an IT-based energy management system.
Up to the market launch of the Volkswagen ID., the first model based on the modular electric toolkit MEB in 2020, the company will successively roll out a large number of solutions that private and commercial e-mobility customers need now and in the future – ranging from hardware to charging, additional digital services and complete advice packages.
