Future of mobility, Hyundai Ioniq.
Reading tip: The consulting group KPMG asked 1,000 mangers from carmakers, suppliers and other companies related to the automotive sector about the future of mobility. 62 percent believe that electric mobility will fail, because of a lack of infrastructure, while 78 percent see fuel cell technology succeed. Only a little more than half (53%) believe, the diesel has no future.
Video tip: Tesla driver Bjørn Nyland switched wheels for a “short” test drive, taking the Hyundai Ioniq Electric for a spin around cold Norway. In his two-part video review (80 minutes in total), Nyland says the EV is almost as good as a Tesla and he was impressed with the low energy consumption – despite the freezing cold.
