Electric mobility in Leipzig
German model city for electric mobility
With BMW and Porsche in town, Leipzig has long been an industrial location for electric mobility.
But that's not enough for us Leipzig locals. We want to be Germany's pioneering city for all things related to e-mobility. Today, numerous initiatives and projects already ensure that Leipzig remains a veritable paradise for electric cars and e-bikes.
Besides a comprehensive network of charging stations, you can also charge your electricity in a very innovative way in Leipzig using an LED lantern. Moreover, bicycle fast lanes are planned for the area surrounding Leipzig, and, going forwards, parking in the city is set to be free for electric cars.
So: come to Leipzig!
Here, electric cars always have right of way - not literally, but in terms of charging convenience.
On the go with an electric car
In Leipzig, there are currently 67 public charging stations, with160 charging spots, where you can recharge your electric car for free! This is how Leipzig's municipal utilities promote electric mobility in the city.
Almost all charging stations are at your disposal 24/7, 365 days a year. Refuelling in Leipzig is not only free, but "green" too, as the electricity from the charging pole was generated from 100 % renewable energy.
