Where we came from
We are a start-up born in ZF's innovation lab.
As one of the leading automotive suppliers engineers worked already on a future that allows cars to autonoumsly drive. It was clear though that driving alone wasn't the solution. Still, a car would need to park or charge, if not refuel. This is when the idea of Car eWallet was born. We wanted to enable cars not only to drive, but also to pay for a wide range of mobility services.
Two years later Car eWallet became its own entity backed by ZF as their parent company. The way towards the spin-off was a very interesting one. Here is our story with some of the most important milestones.
2016As an outcome of ZF's newly founded IoT-Lab Car eWallet raised a lot of attention when first introduced as a concept in 2016 at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
2017With the International Automobilausstellung (IAA) of the following year the public was introduced to the first working prototype showcasing the use cases parking, charging and toll.
2018In 2018 Car eWallet concentrated on further developing the prototype into a MVP. With the spin-off in September, the company signed up first partners to roll-out with initial field tests starting 2019.
