Visions

Climate change and the depletion of fossil fuel resources are changing our mobility greatly. If we do not want to leave completely the way of individual transportation by car, we have to put the car on "new wheels". The car has a future! But how could this be? How we will get around in the future? And how do we tap our energy?
The new garment of traffic will have many shades, electric drives are but including in any case. Electromobility has the opportunity to change our mobile life sustainably - towards a gentler, fairer requires locomotion. It facilitates us the transition from fossil fuels to post-fossil mobility culture that focuses on clean, safe available domestic energy sources.

The number of people on our planet will continue to rise - and thus to promote the demand, goods and people. At the same time the oil reserves are running out, who used as fuels derivatives for consumers are becoming increasingly expensive. In addition, the CO2 emissions that bring our climate system to falter. Given this scenario can electromobility make an important contribution to a fundamental energy transition in traffic. This requires, however, that the current for electric vehicles actually comes from wind, solar and other renewable energy sources. Only in this way we get to the goal of reducing emissions to zero and to replace fossil fuels, much closer.

How could look in the future against this background our mobile life?

The car, which an ordinary commuters will be in his garage, perhaps different in design and the electronic equipment of vehicles with conventional internal combustion engines, but today disadvantage of electric vehicles are no longer relevant. Neither had the commuters to spend more money in the purchase of the car, nor is his car limited by the large battery significantly heavier, yet its ride comfort through limited range. Also contribute to improved vehicle designs and the consistent use of lightweight components.

The vehicle fleets of companies and state, and the majority of vehicles for individual and goods will be electrically operated or supported. In addition to the existing light vehicles, there will be different types of vehicles that meet the diverse individual mobility needs.

The user of the future can choose the right vehicle for every application. The electric battery powered and emission-free compact car is for a normal city dwellers the rule. For shorter urban routes it uses electric scooters and bikes or the large surface electrically operated public Personennahverkehr.Und when actually longer distances have to be covered, there are numerous alternatives. In addition to plug-in hybrids with a long range questions about Car-Sharing offers people environment-friendly vehicles.

course portfolio includes also convertibles, sports cars and vans. The charging their batteries If it partly as riding practices, namely by several kilometers into the roadway built-in charging systems that operate on the basis of induction. The time-consuming search for charging stations outside the known environment belongs to the past, since the network of charging stations is expanded nationwide and the locations can be the drivers at any time by communicating navigation system.

Overall, the quality of life, particularly in urban areas, increased considerably by reducing the direct emissions: Less emissions, less dust and less noise - which is noticeable especially in megacities. The components of the electric vehicle are recycled, of course, already in the construction of the vehicles are environmentally friendly materials and processes of the Standard.

Electric vehicles make an important contribution to grid stability. For example, is the battery of the electric car our commuter as memory which registers obtained from renewable sources of energy, but also feeds back into the grid when needed. This intelligent network integration ensures that fluctuating energy sources such as clean wind and solar energy are used to excess hours efficiently. This integration of the private car in the power supply is controlled by user-friendly advanced technology, for example, by wireless charging technologies with high efficiency. Long load times, requiring a careful distance and time planning, no longer need to be factored in.

The necessary for the smooth running and uniquely innovative high technology has the German car manufacturers and suppliers secured international competitive advantage, which many people in the country owe their jobs. The approach adopted in Germany holistic, sustainable approach has proved to be a great strength.
