Volkswagen and documenta fifteen: fostering sustainability
Driving electric mobility forward and being a partner of documenta, Volkswagen enables visitors to explore the ample exhibition site in an all-electric, convenient and efficient way by using models from the ID. family. Adding the corresponding infrastructure, Volkswagen Group Components installs 30 mobile fast chargers using plug-and-play technology. Without the requirement of any underground work, every fast charger is instantly ready to be used after set-up and configuration and is able to simultaneously charge two electric cars with up to 150 kW, offering in just 15 minutes enough power for driving around 200 km.
In addition, Volkswagen and the local administration are going to build permanent charging points which will be available for people in the Kassel region also beyond the duration of the exhibition.
Further to partnership activities at previous documenta exhibitions, Volkswagen trainees from the Kassel plant will assist at selected art projects. Benita von Maltzahn, Head of Cultural Engagement at Volkswagen Group Communications, knows documenta very well after several years of partnership work: The ideas of the team of documenta fifteen are very similar to ours. We always aim to provide as many people as possible with access to cultural experiences. And we are constantly looking for the most sustainable and resource saving ways to realize them. E-mobility and charging infrastructure will contribute to bring culture and people together as we strongly believe in an actual art experience and the personal exchange of views to turn encounters in lasting and inspiring events.
