Three questions about electromobility for Helmuth Brants
01. How has your life changed since you started driving an electric car?
I am much more relaxed. Even my wife noticed. I used to come home from business trips and long drives all stressed out, because I took very few breaks. That was unreasonable of me. Now, when I drive long distances, I’m often forced to take a break, despite the good range of my Audi. And that’s very good for me.
02. Do you see yourself as an ambassador for a new era?
Absolutely. I’m almost 60 years old and, like many others, I have established routines and habits in my life. Ever since I’ve been driving an electric vehicle, I experience many new things that I can talk about. It’s a lot of fun and I feel like I am some kind of pioneer, doing a good deed.
03. What else do you find exciting about your own personal electromobility?
E-vehicles are exciting in other ways, too. You no longer have these tons of buttons in the cockpit. That beautiful screen is enough, it’s so much cleaner. Operating the vehicle is more sophisticated and somehow more intuitive, too. I was and still am pleasantly surprised at how different an e-vehicle feels.
