we enable e-mobility with a plug @ each and every parking spot!

What is chargeBIG?

We at MAHLE are working hard on our dual strategy, meaning to further improve the combustion engine in terms of emissions and fuel consumption & to enable E-Mobility.

 

But we still suffer the "hen & egg" problem. E-Mobility doesn't work without proper charging infrastructure. This means DC fast charging at highways & a charging plug at each and every parking spot. 

We didn't find a solution for the latter. So we will do it ourselves.

chargeBIG enables E-Mobility by providing large scale affordable charging infrastructure


chargeBIG is a MAHLE financed innovation initiative
