Hubject GmbH, a joint venture formed by BMW Group, Bosch, Daimler, EnBW, RWE and Siemens, and eighteen other companies signed an agreement today to cooperate under the "eMobility ICT Interoperability Interest Group", thereby forming an international interest group to promote harmonised electromobility data standards.


Andreas Pfeiffer, Managing Director of Hubject GmbH, comments: "In the emerging electromobility market common standards are needed. From our point of view the formation of the eMobility ICT Interoperability Interest Group marks a milestone in the development of a functioning and complete electromobility system."


The cooperation between as many service providers as possible provides the foundation needed to ensure a standardised data exchange between all players and to reduce barriers for the users.


Electric cars will become more integrated into the intelligent traffic infrastructure and energy networks of the future than conventional combustion engines, with modern Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) forming the backbone for the integration of electric vehicles into these networks. Over the last years significant progress has been achieved in this field in a range of research projects across Europe. The diverse range of services that have emerged from these projects now need to be connected on a global level to ensure that electromobility can be established as a sustainable alternative to conventional combustion engines. The "eMobility ICT Interoperability Interest Group", a unique joint initiative by leading electromobility companies, therefore pursues a goal: to enable interoperable international services by harmonising current and future data standards. Especially end users will benefit from this, as harmonised standards and a diverse service offering in the global market will make it easy and attractive to use electromobility.


Companies involved in the "eMobility ICT Interoperability Interest Group":
Betterplace, Bayerische Motoren Werke Aktiengesellschaft, Bosch Software Innovations GmbH, Coulomb Technologies Inc., Daimler AG, e-laad, EnBW Operations GmbH, ENEL Distribuzione, ESB, EValu8 Transport Innovations Limited, Fitsa, Green eMotion Project, Hubject GmbH, IBM Deutschland GmbH, INTELI - Inteligência em Inovação (MOBI.E), Renault, SAP, Siemens - Aktiengesellschaft, smartlab Innovationsgesellschaft mbH.


About Hubject GmbH:
Hubject GmbH is a joint venture formed by the BMW Group, Bosch, Daimler, EnBW, RWE and Siemens based in Berlin. The company is developing a cross-industry data platform connecting infrastructure, service and mobility providers, thereby making a significant contribution towards a multi-provider electric vehicle infrastructure without barriers.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
