Audi's futuristic e-den charging station at Design Miami

Audi e-den charging station was unveiled yesterday at Design Miami together with a red e-tron Spyder. The e-den charging station is inspired by American petrol stations from the 1950s with plenty of chrome, glass and an old petrol pump encased in glass like a museum piece.

Audi’s message with the e-den is that with electric cars people will be spending more time at charging stations than filling up with petrol or diesel. The question is what drivers can do in the meantime and what amenities will charging stations of the future have to offer?

Audi thinks part of the experience could be a cozy furniture with some books and magazines.

“Our aim in creating this installation is to heighten the public’s awareness of the wide range of challenges electromobility presents. And we provide food for thought – not just about electric vehicles themselves, but also about the infrastructure that will have to be created to support electric mobility”, says Peter Schwarzenbauer, Member of the Audi Board of Management for Marketing and Sales. Design Miami, the world’s leading design show, is an excellent venue in this regard. And this is also Audi’s fifth year as a partner and exhibitor at the show.
