Being on the road in an electric car is to become much easier and more natural in Jena in the coming years.

However, many companies, the Stadtwerke Jena Group, the city itself and also some private individuals have already gained experience in recent years. As operators of electrically powered vehicle fleets, as partners in the "Smart City Logistics" project or simply as users of electric vehicles.

Some important projects such as "Immergrün" (jenawohnen GmbH, Stadtwerke Jena Group) have been launched.

Since August 2016, two purely electrically powered company vehicles have been available to the employees of the city of Jena at the location Am Anger 26. Many journeys in the city area are now carried out free of exhaust fumes.

With a stated range of 240 km, business trips to Erfurt or neighbouring municipalities are also possible without stress. The vehicles are charged at a charging station with 22 kW power per charging point. This means that it only takes 1.5 hours until the full capacity is available again.

The inauguration of the e-car sharing location in Jena (Am Anger 26) took place on 11.01.2019 by Thuringia's Environment Minister Anja Siegesmund.

The ministry provided funding, and the Jena public utility company and the carsharing company teilAuto also invested. The city of Jena provided the land. A public charging station with 2 charging points was also built.

Electricity can currently be recharged at 15 public charging stations (35 charging points) in Jena [as of January 2019].

The charging stations of the Stadtwerke Jena Group belong to the ladenetz.de network. There you can also find information about the locations. The charging stations in Jena have one special feature: Here, they exclusively refuel with green electricity. Currently, the green electricity used to charge the electric vehicles is charged at a flat rate per charging process.

Another service offered by Stadtwerke Energie Jena-Pößneck GmbH is the installation of a charging station for lease or purchase for home use. The services are described in the flyer "Energy & Mobility The charging station for home".

Seit 2020 gibt es in Jena die elektrisch betriebenen evita-Roller des Jenaer Nahverkehrs, die sich jeder per App zu günstigen Minutentarifen ausleihen kann. Da das flexible Mobilitätsangebot hervorragend in die Mobilitätsstrategie der Stadt Jena passt, hat die Stadtverwaltung ihren Fuhrpark um zwei evita-Dienstroller ergänzt.
