we enable e-mobility with a plug @ each and every parking spot!
We at MAHLE are working hard on our dual strategy, meaning to further improve the combustion engine in terms of emissions and fuel consumption & to enable E-Mobility.
But we still suffer the "hen & egg" problem. E-Mobility doesn't work without proper charging infrastructure. This means DC fast charging at highways & a charging plug at each and every parking spot.
We didn't find a solution for the latter. So we will do it ourselves.
