“I believe in horses. The automobile is just a temporary phenomenon.” (Kaiser Wilhelm II., 1859 – 1941)
The horse appeared to be much faster and more versatile than this new contraption on four wheels (or three wheels as it was back then). And horses didn’t need refuelling either.
Nowadays, there are over one billion cars on roads around the world, including more than two million electric vehicles. The ID. family – Volkswagen’s new generation of electric vehicles – is soon set to drive into the future with a range of up to 550 km. So, “temporary” definitely looks a little different.
