Long live mobility

The future of mobility is not the individual system of cars we use today. We all know it, but the joke is that even car manufactures are taking precautions.

MOIA (VW) wants to make the lives of the city dweller better, saver and cleaner. ‘The current transportation system is inefficient and it’s very expansive. When you just think about pollution, congestion and noise in cities, you really need to find answers to that.’ Intriguing words from the mouth of Ole Harms, chief of MOIA and someone from the payroll of Volkswagen.

Mercedes is also rethinking the cars future with Car2GO, BMW and Sixt are doing it with Drive Now. All brands seem to be vary anxious about missing the shift from car possession to a new form of mobility…

What they not seem not to understand is that motorized transport may be a necessity for some occasions, but is hugely inefficient for lots of occasions. It’s still an overweighted choice that cost lots of energy to get in motion, takes lots of public space and is no answer to growing health problems. Your own two legs are the real problem solvers!
