Padmasree-Warrior“I give Tesla and Tesla CEO Elon Musk a lot of credit for really bringing the EV back. It was literally dead before Tesla made it a serious product.”

Padmasree Warrior, CEO of NextEV’s U.S. division, would love to sit down with Elon Musk to learn more about his experiences. But as NextEV sees itself as a digital company, it does say it will push transportation in the digital age even further.

Jean-Todt“We want Formula E to be a visionary championship. We want to highlight how our racing cars will be, not in two years but in 20 years, so that it is kind of a laboratory for motor racing.”

FIA President Jean Todt says the electric racing series is like a lab for EV technology. And in season five of the Formula E, he wants to show that they were able to double autonomy since the beginning.

Michael-Steiner“A 911 hybrid? It’s possible, yes. It’s possible to have 918-derived technology in a 911. It’s possible with today’s technology in a 911. However, there is no decision to do this on short notice, but we have this constantly on our radar.”

Michael Steiner, Porsche executive board member for research and development, doesn’t lose sight of electrification. But an electrified 911 is not in the pipeline.
