The future belongs to electromobility. Many people associate clean mobility, a modern means of getting about and a great deal of fun with e-cars. The general consensus is that most private means of transport, especially in cities, will soon run on electricity. But here and now, e-cars are often still seen as something exotic. Potential purchasers are still pretty skeptical and ask worriedly about the vehicles’ range, for example. The horror scenario: coming to a halt on a lengthy journey with an empty battery and far away from the next charging station.
Yet those worries are unjustified nowadays and can soon be dispelled in many cases. For example, the average distance driven daily by a commuter in Germany is around 35 kilometers. That means the average commuter would need to charge a vehicle that now has a range of 200 kilometers, for example, just about once a week. It’s easy to plan when the car is to be recharged the next time – overnight from a power socket at home or during the day at work at the company’s charging station.
