“Yes, electrification offers an all-new way of looking at cars, but we don’t want to lose customers – we have to balance these factors while pushing to show what we can do.”
Franck Welsch, Volkswagen’s head of technology, calls for balancing consumer demands like “design, interior space, comfort”, with driving fun. Sounds like electric is just the way to go, does it not?!
“It’s not easy but we will do 500km range and a 15-minute charge. We have the technical ability to do it, the hard part is doing it on a whole vehicle.”
Porsche CEO Oliver Blume stresses that the Mission E will resemble the concept, but that the EV still needs to have “all the driving emotion of a Porsche.” Again, that sounds like an ideal case for electrification.
