Vienna Autoshow 2020 – go-e products attract visitors

Messestand von go-e mit go-eCharger auf Vienna Autoshow

In 2020, e-mobility is really taking off – and the smart go-e products are part of it. The Vienna Autoshow 2020 (16 to 19 January), where a 3,500 m² e-mobility area was dedicated to the mobility topic of the future, laid the groundwork for this. Countless of the approx. 160,000 visitors (including the preview day) took the opportunity to take advantage of the wide range of information on electric driving. This was also the case at the largest stand for charging technology within the e-Mobility Area. There the go-e trade fair team held almost non-stop consulting sessions. In addition to general information on emobility, the guests were interested in detailed questions about the go-e charging stations for electric cars, the go-eController for smart energy management and the ONwheel retrofit bicycle motor.

Presentation programme of the e-Mobility Area illuminates the path to widespread electric mobility

At the Vienna Autoshow electromobility was supported by Leonore Gewessler. Austria’s recently sworn in Federal Minister for Transport, Innovation and Technology officially opened the e-Mobility Area in the presence of invited guests on the eve before the first day of the trade fair. The special area about electric mobility attracted visitors with electric cars of various brands, matching charging technology, a two-wheeler area and a wide-ranging information and stage programme. This also included an attempt to dispel the myths and fables surrounding electric cars. A specialist lecture by go-e provided answers to the question: “Do electric cars endanger the power supply?” The clear result: 100% electric cars on German and Austrian roads are possible in the medium term. However, a precondition for this is the use of intelligent charging technology with integrated load balancing and the possibility of photovoltaic surplus charging. For this reason, these and other functions are always integrated in charging stations for electric cars from go-e at no additional cost.

Visitor question: which advantages does the go-e Charger HOME+ have compared to another charging station or wallbox?

The previous knowledge of the visitors at the go-e booth in Vienna was very different. Some visitors apologised formally for their supposed “beginner’s questions”. However, the go-e trade fair team paid as much attention to these as they did to more detailed questions about individual functions of the go-e products or inquiries from electricians and solar technicians regarding technical details. A recurring question asked by visitors: “What distinguishes a go-eCharger from other charging solutions?” Answer: With the go-eCharger HOME+, go-e offers a charging station for electric cars at a smart price that includes all the functions of a fully-equipped wallbox. For example, WLAN or the possibility of connecting to a electricity price exchange is always included. In addition, the Charger in the version with a CEE red 32A plug is also a mobile charging station and thus a good companion when travelling. In the fixed installation version, however, the charging box from go-e can be used as a pure wallbox.

Convinced users reported at the booth about the advantages of the go-eCharger HOME+ 

While the trade fair team gave a lot of basic knowledge about the go-e Charger, the ONwheel, as always, fascinated whole groups of visitors. Sometimes, visitors who already use the go-eCharger HOME+ came to the booth. They also confirmed its advantages to other guests with whom they willingly shared their good experiences in charging electric cars. Thank you very much for this positive encouragement and the opportunity to talk in detail about the use of our charging boxes. We also want to thank all dealers of go-e products who visited our booth.

By the way, visitors of the e-Mobility Area were able to win the go-eCharger HOME+ in addition to other prizes. go-e wishes the lucky winner much joy. The winner will be notified directly by INSTADRIVE, the coordinator of the e-Mobility Area.

eMove360°: Great interest in go-e chargers

Messestand der go-e GmbH mit Ladegeräten für Elektroautos auf der Fachmesse emove360 in München.

Chargers for electric cars were a central theme of the international trade fair eMove360°. From 15 to 17 October 2019, more than 290 exhibitors from 25 countries presented in Munich their ideas and products for mobility 4.0. Many of the approximately 10,000 visitors (mainly from the commercial sector) took the opportunity to inform themselves at the go-e booth about the inexpensive high-end charger go-eCharger HOME+ and the professional charging station go-eCharger PRO, which is nearly ready for the market.

In numerous dialogues visitors spoke about several core topics around the connection and use of commercial charging stations. With the solution for public and semi-public charging for electrically powered cars, go-e will soon offer the apt answers to many of the questions posed during the fair. For this reason, many visitors rated our products, which can charge any electric car registered in Europe, very positively.

Our trade fair team was particularly pleased about the visit of specialist dealers who already have go-e chargers in their product range and sell them locally or on the Internet. It was a special pleasure for us to intensify our contacts in a personal conversation and to exchange ideas about further cooperation.

In addition to the chargers, go-e also exhibited the ONwheel. The retrofit set offers tail wind for the bicycle at the push of a button. The friction roller drive once again proved to be a crowd-puller. Therefore the specialized journalist Peter Pernsteiner visited our exhibition booth, took up an interview about our ONwheel solution, which encounters on YouTube on high interest.

go-e team and specialist dealers show go-eCharger

This year, the charging technology specialist go-e has already presented the go-eCharger HOME+ at numerous trade fairs. The next opportunity to experience the go-e team and the company’s own high-end charging technology for cars up close will be at eMOVE360° (Messe München) from 15 to 17 October 2019.

Some of the numerous go-e specialist dealers also present the go-eCharger at trade fairs and events. The team of Bremer Store + Charge GmbH recently had its own stand at the 2nd E-Day Blumenthal (21 September 2019 in Bremen). More than 4,000 visitors used the event to obtain comprehensive information about e-mobility. The conclusion drawn by the go-e specialist dealer from the north of Germany: “The stand was extremely well attended and the go-eCharger has once again confirmed itself as the “favourite”.

go-e on a trade fair tour

The world of mobility is fascinating, adventurous and exciting – especially today. The most current topics and trends around the new mobility can be experienced particularly well at trade fairs, some of which are coming up again in autumn and should not be missed. The go-e trade fair team will also be on a trade fair tour again and is already looking forward to welcoming numerous visitors.

From 10th to 15th September we will be at the IAA in Frankfurt am Main. Under the motto “Driving tomorrow”, the latest generations of vehicles, technologies and digital solutions will be on display at the 200,000 m2 exhibition. In addition to experts from the mobility industry, the IAA Conference will also feature speakers from the worlds of politics and innovation.

The next item in our trade fair calendar are the E-Mobility Play Days at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, which will take place from 28th to 29th September. At the third edition of the versatile Austrian industry meeting, innovations from the world of e-mobility can be discovered. An exciting event, where for many people test driving with electric cars is certainly the order of the day, which of course we won’t miss and where we will be present with an exhibition stand.

The e-move360° in Munich will conclude our tour. From 15th to 17th October, the latest trends in future-oriented and sustainable mobility solutions will be presented at the 4th International Trade Fair for E-Mobility: for example, material and process solutions, electronics and infotainment. The target group of this trade fair are developers, designers, IT experts, fleet managers and much more.

The go-e team will be represented at the trade fairs with our portable charging solution for at home and on the road – the go-eCharger HOME+, our retrofit bicycle drive ONwheel and a new launch: the go-eCharger PRO, the stationary charging station for the business sector. We also have our core topics for this year’s autumn trade fair tour in our luggage: load balancing and innovations in the world of charging.

go-eCharger function – electricity price exchange aWATTar

Mit dem go-eCharger Home+ lässt sich das Elektroauto auch mit günstigen Strom der aWATTar Börse laden.

We would like to use the newsletter to describe each function of our charger in more detail. This time we made the electricity price exchange connection with aWATTar. A particularly clever function, as we find.

Because with aWATTar you can save on loading. The go-eCharger decides through the connection to the electricity price exchange and the information on service life and the desired amount of charge in which hours is loaded at best. The account balance but also the environment is happy about that. You can save up to 70% on the energy price with this feature.

The price of electricity is decided by nature. 

Because it is cheaper when it is sunny or windy. The cheaper night rates, it looks a bit different: These come about by the lower demand during these hours.

With tariffs from aWATTar and a smart meter (intelligent electricity meter), the electricity price available on the electricity exchanges is available. This is significantly cheaper, for example, in the night hours than in the evening. But that’s not all: From time to time, there is so much power available in the network that you deserve when you shop. That is, aWATTar pays you to take the power off. The benefits of surplus electricity are not only economical, but also ecologically very elegant.

How does it work? 

Register online at www.awattar.at (or www.awattar.de for Germany). If not already installed: download app for the go-eCharger. And let’s get started: When connected to the Internet, the go-eCharger automatically knows when it’s green and cheap via the aWATTar data interface. And that already the day before. At 2 pm aWATTar announces the prices for the next day. These are data from the EPEX Spot® Power Exchange. The data is transmitted in a machine-readable form by means of the electricity price API. Automatically charge solar and wind energy.

The use of this feature is now also possible in Germany and in the go-eCharger App selectable. Please contact us at any time if registration is required.

Review: Vienna Autoshow 2019

Großes Interesse an den Produkten der go-e GmbH für Elektroautos und Fahrräder auf der Vienna Autoshow 2019.

From 9th to 13th January the Vienna Autoshow 2019 took place, at which we were also represented with a stand. Dealers showed great interest in e-mobility: around 40 % of dealer enquiries related to e-mobility. E-technically there was not much that was new at the Autoshow. Only a few new cars were presented in this area: At the Austrian premiere of the new electric models from Hyundai and Kia, visitor interest was very high. The Elektro-Kona and the e-Niro were presented here. It was remarkable that Tesla was also represented with its own stand and presented, among other things, the Model 3. Of course there was a special rush of visitors.

As expected, the number of visitors to the e-mobility area, which was represented for the first time at the Vienna Autoshow, was high. The well-informed audience gathered information and suggestions on all possible topics related to electric mobility. Above all, photovoltaics was an exciting subject area for which go-e offers interesting solutions.

We had discussions during all five exhibition days with customers, partners and interested parties. We were very pleased about the numerous visitors. The next fair, at which go-e will also exhibit again, will be Cyclingworld in Düsseldorf from 23rd to 24th March. There we are represented with the ONwheel and are pleased naturally again about active visitor interest.

We wish you a good e-drive,

your team from go-e
