Daimler has teamed up with Hubject to develop a charging solution that integrates payment options to make life easier for those who use electrified vehicles and need to charge their vehicles while they are on the move. Generally, they need a charging card or a smatphone app to make payment. Hubject and Daimler have come up with a simpler, digital certificate-based service.
The new solution even makes it possible to make the payment automatically and promises a highly level of security with modern encryption and signature mechanisms. In short, it digitally certifies a customer and then transmits the details in encrypted form, thus facilitating the charging process. It can be used both online and offline.
Commenting on the solution, Hubject CEO Christian Hahn said that the company teamed up with Daimler to achieve its vision of simple charging and payment for electric vehicles for everybody. Everywhere. The company’s next step towards a fully automated, customer-friendly charging experience is charging with Plug&Charge via ISO 15118.
Hubject is a Berlin-based e-mobility specialist and worked with Daimler on the pilot phase of the program. Another rcompany which participated in the project was Ebee Smart Technologies which participated as the charging point operator. All the companies now agree that Plug&Charge is now ready for production and Daimler will be making the first electric vehicle which can support the pathbreaking technology.
Hubject has made it clear that all global markets in all industries will be able to join their ISO 15118 system standard. In the long run, this system is also meant to integrate electric vehicles more closely into the energy grid through smart charging.
