„Anyone who sees only the German market as the measure of their success in the electric transport market is selling themselves short. Those who fail to act will be punished by the market.“
Norbert Reithofer, CEO BMW
One million electric cars on Germany’s roads by 2020? It can be achieved. Because the products on offer are becoming more differentiated, the infrastructure is growing and usability is increasing. In short, electric transport is becoming increasingly attractive and has now reached the consumer. But it is not just electric cars that are enjoying constantly rising demand; electric bikes and trikes are experiencing an unprecedented boom.
