Despite steady growth in the e-mobility market share, large parts of the population still have major reservations. Reservations such as range anxiety, batteries catching fire and the carbon footprint, i.e. the time it takes to offset the environmental cost of producing the battery compared to a combustion engine, still persist despite scientific information being widely available. Others are waiting for the hydrogen vehicle to appear. So, is there any substance to the criticisms? What are the differences between the individual manufacturers? The number of new registrations of e-vehicles is increasing rapidly, as is the variety of products. Experts anticipate a share of 40 to 50 percent by 2030, but just how eco-friendly are battery-powered e-vehicles? Will we be paying for the mobility revolution with massive job losses or is there rather a shortage of skilled labor? Will we soon see long queues at the few charging stations, or even a blackout? Our experts help you see more clearly.
