Accelerating transition towards sustainable urban logistics. Now with a 3.25 mil euro tail wind

14. January 2016

Tesla Model S, Nissan Leaf and BMW i3 catch lots of attention and rightly so, as they were the first to prove that electric cars can be attractive and desirable. But it will be the heavy duty segments such as delivery trucks and buses that will experience the most dynamic transition to electric in the years to come. That’s because their economies are so compelling. And now we have a new, 3.25 mil reason to keep accelerating this transition. GreenWay

Let’s push VW for 1.000.000 electric vehicles

25. September 2015

Volkswagen has a problem. A big one. By way of manipulation they were able to emit 40 times more poisonous emissions than they were allowed. Volkswagen misinterpreted the health impacts of their vehicles towards millions of people in the same way as Tobacco companies have done in the past. Tobacco companies are much more honest now, but lost tens of billions dollars in ‘honesty therapy’ in the process. There is no reason not to believe that this kind of billion

Golf is the highest selling European car of all time, so it comes as no surprise that Volkswagen chose it to experiment with electric drives. Driving this car was a thrilling experience for me. From the first moment I was impressed by its stability, handling characteristics and the classic design. Compact design and energy saving tires make many electromobiles less stable in turns than we are normally used to. Luckily this is not the case with eGolf since the vehicle

How important are the charging stations to electromobility development?

20. April 2015

Electromobiles encounter many different criticisms on a daily basis. It is not just their, only seemingly, higher price which causes bad will, but also the lack of charging stations. Although these have been growing like mushrooms in continental Europe, this still cannot be compared for example to Japan with chargers available literally on every corner. Constant construction and expansion of the infrastructure is therefore important, if nothing else as an argument for those deciding whether it makes sense to switch
