Audi is launching a free initiative for all electric and plug-in hybrid car owners at Munich Airport, under the name of ‘Charge & Fly’. Until the end of the year, drivers can recharge their cars while they are away, and park for free.
An Audi e-tron shuttle is also available to transfer passengers to their required terminal. Upon their return, customers can take up the offer of a test drive accompanied by an Audi expert.
Audi says the new campaign represents a further building block in the charging system that it operates at Munich Airport. This year, one of the world’s largest charging parks with 70 AC charging points (22 kW) and six DC charging points (150 kW), was put into operation.
The facade of the new Audi Brand Experience Centre at the airport incorporates a photovoltaic system that generates power. Two second-life batteries store surplus power from the photovoltaic facade making them suitable for charging the batteries of electric vehicles.
