Richmond, VA, August 25, 2020 – Allianz Partners announces today that it is now a core member of the CharIN Interface Initiative (CharIN e.V.), an association aiming to develop and establish the Combined Charging System (CCS) as the global standard for charging battery-powered electric vehicles (EV). The CCS standard, which is the plug and socket standard, is currently the world’s only charging system that covers all charging scenarios with a single product, and is the most common standard in the world.
The rapid development of EV requires adapted assistance services to provide and restore mobility for drivers. As a global leader in roadside assistance services, Allianz Partners has been adapting its capabilities to develop a dedicated EV assistance offer in many markets around the globe. This includes a towing and patrol network specifically trained and certified for EVs, the integration of charging stations in our systems, a dedicated EV customer helpline, also accessible from an assistance button in the vehicle. Allianz Partners is the trusted EV roadside assistance and insurance partner for many OEMs including BMW, Audi, and Hyundai, among others.
As a core member of CharIN, Allianz Partners will share its expertise and insights and engage with other key actors to help to shape the EV mobility of tomorrow.
Jerome Joubert, Chief Marketing Officer for Roadside Assistance at Allianz Partners comments: “Allianz Partners is already deeply involved in the transition to electric and sustainable mobility. Our membership in CharIN confirms our strong commitment and our efforts to accelerate the evolution of charging related standards. Together with CharIN, we are convinced that this new electric mobility ecosystem promoted by CharIN should become the future of the automotive industry.”
