The triumphant advance of the petrol stations

Automobile construction in Germany is closely related to the inventor Carl Benz, who filed a patent for the first car with a combustion engine in 1885. Three years later, on August 5, 1888, his wife Bertha Benz bought the entire supply of ligroin (benzine) from the local pharmacy in Wiesloch in order to continue her journey towards Pforzheim. Even today, a monument on site commemorates this historic moment for petrol stations.

Refuel at Aral

In Bochum, Aral put the first two ultra-fast charging stations on Castroper Hellweg into operation on March 27, 2019. According to its own information, Aral is thus starting the provision of fast charging connections on its own and starting operations autonomously, from building the charging infrastructure to billing.
