Interplay of
All Drive Types

The forecast for the number of cars that are expected to have an all-electric powertrain by 2030 now seems more unrealistic than ever, above all in Germany. Uncertainties in the energy supply and in the success of these vehicles in the market are just too great.
At the same time, it seems certain that the use of synthetic fuels will enable other drive systems to make an important contribution towards climate protection. This may well be a turning point in the climate debate.
