Volkswagen do Brasil and Raízen will launch this Tuesday (12) a fast charging station at the São Bernardo do Campo/SP (Anchieta) factory.

Another charger in the joint venture is located at the Taubaté/SP plant, both of which were provided under a loan agreement with Raízen.

“Now, we can offer our guests a fast charging point in Anchieta and Taubaté. In addition, we will use them to continue with the identification tests. It is possible, for example, to travel the route with an ID.4, which has a range of about 520 kilometers, from the same factory to another – a round trip – without emitting CO2 to the environment, and supplying it with clean energy from a renewable energy source”, says Pablo Di Si, executive chairman of Volkswagen Latin America, in a press release.
