Description

This rough model answers the question how interrelated the challenge for more sustainable mobility is. Extremely interesting is the role electric vehicles can play in this transformation.

The color coding: green for measures, yellow for goals, red for problems, orange for other effects.

Implicit in this model at several connections is that according to the KNOW-WHY-Thinking* of Kai Neumann every human seeks for the feeling of integration and development. That is why we will always want individual mobility and new gadgets that not seldom define our personality. That is why regardless of rebound effects EVs are crucial for a new mobility.

Almost five years later it seems we skip the small batteries and opt for larger ones. They have side effects unless we consider their reuse and recycling.
In German here is an article on the comparison with hydrogen powered (fuel cell) cars:
