Fairy Tales of E-Mobility

E-Myths explained by The Mobility House

Once upon a time, when electric mobility was still in its infancy. When electric cars were a rarity and electric charging was a mystery. During that time the fairy tales of e-mobility were told. For example, about the long charging processes, the short ranges, the few charging options or the expensive costs of purchasing an electric car. In the meantime, however, a lot has happened.

As an experienced expert in the field of intelligent charging and energy solutions, The Mobility House has set itself the goal of taking a closer look at these fairy tales and questioning them. Welcome to our "Fairy Tale Hour of E-Mobility".
