EIGHT aims to inspire people to go for emis-
sion-free mobility. Therefore the company de-
velops solar-powered charging stations that
incorporate all positive characteristics of electric
mobility and may help electric vehicles to be-
come part of a modern urban lifestyle. Innovative
production technologies and a digital process
chain provide the platform for the efficient reali-
sation of individually designed products.
EIGHT’s first public appearance was at the
eCarTec fair in 2011 where they presented their
Point.One solar charging station. This basic four-
car model produces clean power for 40,000
kilometres each year. The weather protection
provided by the integrated solar roof means
parked cars need to put less energy into heating
or cooling, which makes the battery last longer.
The integration of the latest technologies from
the world of information and telecommunication
helps to create positive business cases. Point.
One provides an attractive solution to the chal-
lenging interaction between people, their cars
and solar energy and therefore makes the po-
tential of emission-free mobility visible, tangible
and usable. Awards from Fraunhofer IAO and the
Federal Ministry of Transport and many other or-
ganisations confirm this. This holistic approach
combining design, technology, user-friendliness
and sustainability – which also distinguishes
EIGHT from its competitors – creates a symbol
that makes electric mobility an attractive option.
