The Space-time Dilemma of Urban Mobility

It’s getting crowded in our big cities. Electric mobility will not be able to solve this problem as long as vehicles are still being produced in XXL sizes. Electric powertrains offer a large degree of freedom for new designs and functions. Class L7e vehicles are just the beginning. Supermodal mobility will prevail in urban areas, where, among other things, small standardized boxes are combined with various carrier systems.
