Volkswagen Challenges Tesla With EV Charging, Electricity Unit

Description

Volkswagen Group is challenging Tesla’s push into energy services by setting up its own charging and electricity unit. VW hopes the new business unit, called Elli Group, will make the automaker's upcoming battery-powered cars more attractive to buyers. The Berlin-based business will supply households with renewable power and charging systems, and offer infrastructure for offices and shopping centers. Elli’s portfolio will take shape over the course of this year, with the launch timed to coincide with the rollout of VW’s I.D. electric subbrand in 2020.

Tesla was founded 13 years ago and shipped its first car in 2008 ? the Roadster.

It took four years before the first Model S reached buyers, which now starts at $70,000 (£50,000, AU$97,245) before incentives and is still not very cheap.
