emission-free e-moBility

EIGHT aims to inspire people to go for emission-free mobility. Therefore the company develops solar-powered charging stations that incorporate all positive characteristics of electric mobility and may help electric vehicles to become part of a modern urban lifestyle. Innovative production technologies and a digital process chain provide the platform for the efficient realisation of individually designed products. EIGHTs first public appearance was at the eCarTec fair in 2011 where they presented their Point. One solar charging station. This basic four-car model produces clean power for 40,000 kilometres each year. The weather protection provided by the integrated solar roof means parked cars need to put less energy into heating or cooling, which makes the battery last longer. The integration of the latest technologies from the world of information and telecommunication helps to create positive business cases. Point.One provides an attractive solution to the challenging interaction between people, their cars and solar energy and therefore makes the potential of emission-free mobility visible, tangible and usable. Awards from Fraunhofer IAO and the Federal Ministry of Transport and many other organisations confi rm this. This holistic approach combining design, technology, user-friendliness and sustainability - which also distinguishes EIGHT from its competitors - creates a symbol that makes electric mobility an attractive option.
