A sign of the times? Film festival stars ride electric

This year, film festival stars arriving in Berlin will not only travel in style but also sustainably, in a fleet of 70 Audi e-tron electric vehicles powered by ABB’s Terra DC fast chargers.

Installed alongside the red carpet, opposite the event entrance, ABB’s best selling chargers will be used to charge the Audi e-trons which will transport guests to the event. Further ABB Terra chargers are located close to the festival site for any additional charging requirements.
