Green light for emission-free taxi fleets in Stuttgart
Internal combustion engines are some of the biggest causes of pollution in city centres. In particular, diesel vehicles have the reputation of being pollutant emitters. A ban on diesel vehicles in cities would have far-reaching consequences, especially for taxi companies. Stuttgart has recognised the signs of the time and is helping taxi operators to change over to electric vehicles.
"I am actively participating in the future of mobility"
As a member of the Board of Management of fischerAppelt, Matthias Wesselmann identifies trends with which he can drive the communications agency forward in the areas of public relations and content marketing. And anyone wanting to detect trends must be brave enough to try something new – for example in future mobility: He has therefore been driving a BMW i3 since 2015.
"We need a uniform standard"
With his family-run company ADS-TEC, Thomas Speidel manufactures batteries and thus supports the development of the charging infrastructure for electric cars. Since March 2017 he has been driving a Tesla – and has already racked up 30,000 kilometres. For Speidel the model S is perfect for daily use.
