Three questions on electromobility for Sebastian Copeland
01. How do you assess electromobility as such?
Electromobility is the perfect tool to transition to a low-impact transportation industry. I don’t think that it will be the final say on mobility, and before transitioning, it needs to be further optimised. And there is no time to waste.
02. And how do you perceive the current development?
It is remarkable how it evolved. A few years ago, I would have had no trouble finding a parking space designated for e-vehicles in Munich. Today, however, it’s not that easy anymore. Are we doing enough to regenerate the planet? Probably not, but we should celebrate the great engineering that helps us get there.
03. So, driving a car is no contradiction?
Not driving a car is not necessarily the answer, I’d say. Too many people depend on cars. To me, it is more about behaviour than prohibitions. I ride my bike a lot. But my car sometimes offers me a time advantage. And time is a precious commodity. But when I go by car, it must have the lowest immediate impact
