Volkswagen shows its electric charging robots in action
One of the problems frequently encountered by owners of an electric vehicle is the lack of a dedicated charger. Unlike the gas stations that can be found almost everywhere wherever we are, electric charging stations are still very rare.

The brand recently published a video showing its charging robot in action. This robot is nothing more than a mobile electric charging station . So, rather than drivers finding a terminal to charge their car, they could park anywhere, within the range of a robot, of course, and the robot would come to their car.
