From E-Mobility to Car Design: Exclusive Automobiles Design Special
Mobility is changing – right now! It is not just because the Frankfurt Auto Show IAA just started that we, as people, talk about the way we want to create mobility and use new technology in the future. The truth is: The conscience for rather sustainable solutions is growing immensely, new thinkings and ways of mobility - be that new energies, fewer cars in cities or completely new ways of transportation - are in the heads of customers as well as manufacturers.
