Hager Group sponsors a team in the WAVE TROPHY

When the opportunity presented itself to sponsor an e-couple in the rally, for Hager Group it was hard to refuse, indeed, e-mobility is an important topic for the group now and in the future.

Witty charging stations, an e-rally charging stop in Blieskastel in 2015 for the simultaneous charging of 26 electric vehicles, and not to mention its venture with freshmile (an operator for recharging electrical vehicles) are some of examples that prove that Hager Group is a firm supporter of all initiatives promoting sustainable development. As such, the group is supporting Benoît and Marie Kayser on their electric route from Germany, through France to Switzerland - a perfect match with the Franco-German roots of the group.

The proud owners of 2 electric vehicles, Marie and Benoît will be participating with Hager Group colours in the WAVE rally with their Nissan LEAF. Sharing the ‘WAVE’ spirit, their message is clear, “the electric vehicle (E.V.) is a solution for today, and absolutely not a futuristic concept. Daily, we can all choose to reduce our environmental impact. Even if there is no miracle solution, we are confident that the E.V. is an effective solution and not exclusively for technicians, engineers or militant environmentalists. It is simply a pragmatic solution for anyone.”

One mission - zero emission from Germany to Switzerland with 80 plus e-vehicles for the Wave Trophy 2016
From 10th to 18th June the 6th WAVE TROPHY route starts at Bremerhaven on the North Sea in Germany to wind its way geographically up to Geneva. Spectacular scenery, the Alsatian wine route, castles, a UNESCO World Heritage site and picturesque old towns are all part of the 9-day e-road trip. An e-stop is planned at Albert Ehm Square in the town of Sélestat on 14th June – not too far away from the Hager Group site in Obernai. Private teams, universities, companies, e-bikes, series models, unique prototypes and even an e-truck are all part of the e-rally.
