Elli introduces Elli Charger 2; partnership with Otovo

The Volkswagen Group brand Elli has presented the new Elli Charger 2, equipped with a wide range of services. Volkswagen customers can now purchase their electric vehicle, charger, and electricity tariff in an easy and integrated manner from a single source. In the future, they will also be able to purchase a solar panel system via selected Volkswagen sales channels.

As part of the product launch of the new charger, Elli today announced a strategic partnership with the European solar panel provider Otovo to offer e-mobility customers holistic and innovative energy solutions for their home.

The new Elli Charger 2 can incorporate a home’s solar energy production (solar surplus charging), as well as use the new Volkswagen Naturstrom Flex (market price-optimized charging) to charge with lower electricity prices when demand is low or renewable energies are highly available.


To achieve this, Elli already acquired the license to trade on the European Power Exchange in July 2023. By optimizing charging profiles based on electricity prices and charging from a home’s solar energy, charging costs can be reduced by up to 40%.

Elli designed and engineered the new charger with a clear focus on customer needs from across its 28 European markets. In addition to reducing charging costs, charging speed is a crucial purchasing factor. The new product has been equipped with a wide range of services to accommodate regional differences in home energy setups.

The new Elli Charger 2 will be available in four versions and can charge any EV with a Type-2 charging port. With the new metering functions, the associated cost transparency and dynamic load management, the new Elli Charger 2 can not only be used in private households, but also within commercial settings.
