In cooperation with The New Motion, ACV is offering its members a free charge card for electric cars. The charge card allows more than 310,000 members of the ACV to access the The New Motion charge network. Since 1962, the ACV Automobil-Club offers its members the fast and reliable protection for mobile life. Today ACV is the third largest automobile club in Germany, with more than 310,000 members. "Together with The New Motion, our partner for electric mobility, we are able to offer our members access to the largest public charge network in Europe. This means improved charging infrastructure, greater range and more driving freedom", says Lars Wagener, Chairman of ACV. Members are able to charge their electric cars at over 25,000 public charge points, independently of electricity suppliers. There is also an additional service: if the battery is empty, ACV will tow its members to the closest charge point free of charge.
Overview and easy payment
The charge card provides international access to charging infrastructure, independent of the electricity provider or operator. "The huge range of payment and billing systems in Germany is very inconvenient. With this charge card, however, ACV members can maintain an easy overview amid the jungle of charging and billing systems", explains Lars Wagener. The charging session is started and finished using the charge card. Billing takes place per charge session, and the costs are deducted on a monthly basis.
Find public charge points and start charging right away with the The New Motion app
The app from The New Motion allows electric car drivers to simply and quickly find all public charge points in Europe, along with information on tariffs and availability. It is also possible to start and stop the charging session directly using the app at a growing number of charge points. In addition, the app offers a number of other features that The New Motion is developing on a continuous basis. The The New Motion app is available for free in the App Store and Play Store.
