Volkswagen is expanding its activities in the field of charging infrastructure and is to cooperate closely with has·to·be. Volkswagen Group company Elli is to acquire a minority stake in the company. Together, has·to·be and Volkswagen will forge ahead with the expansion of the pan-European charging network and participate in the rapidly growing market for charging solutions. Some of the Group’s own charging stations are already operating using has·to·be software and are therefore part of a holistic, integrated charging ecosystem.

Volkswagen intends to bring e-mobility forward and by 2028, the Group will be launching almost 70 new full-electric models on the market. In the next five years alone, Volkswagen will be investing more than €30 billion in these efforts. In addition to attractive models, the electric offensive also includes smart charging solutions, energy offerings and digital mobility services.
