A petrol car is not able to return fuel to the petrol station, compensating its owner. But an Electric Vehicle is.
You may already know that we are travelling in northern Europe, driving a KIA e-Niro and studying the future of car electrification. In each country we chose a theme related with its own market and we chat with experts and other interesting people.
Today we traveled from Hamburg to Copenhagen in a very busy Autobahn (A1). Besides, two traffic accidents produced big traffic jams.
Speed, convenience, ease of use and reliability. These are the major challenges, nowadays, in highway charging. This morning, in Amsterdam, we talked to the CEO of a charging company and a Customer that drives more than 60.000 km per year in an EV.
After hearing a Car Manufacturer perspective yesterday in Germany, we drove today our KIA e-Niro to the Netherlands. Surprising range and good charging infrastructures in the A3 Autobahn... But we will talk about this in another day!
This Research RoadTrip is a very challenging experience due to the need of combining interviews, with car videos, photos, text analysis, publishing, long distance travel in an Electric Vehicle and the unavoidable time limitations. So, the KIA e-Niro will be our home!
On our way to Frankfurt, yesterday we stopped at the FACONAUTO Congress, where we talked about the WS Electric Mission with Chimo Ortega from Capital Radio. An opportunity to explain what we will try to do in the next two weeks...
Our focus will not be on the technical side of car electrification, but to understand how society is prepared for this unavoidable trend and how quickly it will advance. We will talk with the main stakeholders, with the people on the streets, we will go after every new relevant clue to build the big picture! Twelve days traveling in five nordic countries, driving a KIA e-Niro and sharing the experience in Linkedin, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and in World Shopper Trends! Follow us in this incredible Research RoadTrip!
