Success-Story E.ON Drive E-Mobility Guarantee

Keeping e-vehicles mobile — even on an empty battery

The E.ON Drive E-Mobility Guarantee gets e-vehicles to their destination — guaranteed

Key
Facts

  • E.ON is the first E-Mobility provider to offer insurance with a guaranteed range.
  • A service developed jointly by E.ON Innovation and Zurich Insurance to offer customers more security and encourage the shift towards electromobility.
  • If you run out of battery, E.ON guarantees fast transport to the next charging station — no matter which type of e-vehicle you drive or which car insurance you have.

The Challenge

The energy transformation is a mission that can only be accomplished by rethinking the issue of mobility. This is crucial, because traffic on the roads accounts for about 22% of CO2 emissions in the EU. And that means that the energy transformation is also a transport transformation.

Today, electromobility is steadily gaining ground thanks to ever-increasing driving ranges, fast charging processes and the continual expansion of the charging infrastructure. Yet, driving ranges can still pose a challenge; for example, if an e-vehicle driver unexpectedly gets stuck in traffic while driving on a low battery, or if the nearest charging station is occupied or out of order.

In cases like these, there’s simply not enough power to continue driving, because, unlike with combustion engines, there’s no way to carry a spare fuel tank. Scenarios like these also deter many people from switching to electric vehicles.
