Electromobility for all. Utopia or maybe? How the state and industry can jointly fulfill their constitutional mandate.

In times of upheaval in mobility, is one question: how this change affects the entire population. The industry's approach does not yet take into account the desire for prosperity and progress for the masses. Rather, today's approach is aimed not only at dividing the population into poor and rich, it goes even further and divides the nation into extremely poor and extremely rich. The article presented here should show alternatives.

The challenges of electromobility have so far been insufficiently solved. Infrastructure, drive concepts, energy supply, sustainability, costs and safety are just some of the aspects that represent a major challenge for industry and the state. The approaches are promising in many areas, but are being pursued insufficiently. One of these major tasks is to ensure the supply of the corresponding energy carriers / storages. The electric drive components are now ideally suited to produce large-scale, cost-effective vehicles. However, the energy storage is not yet solved satisfactorily. Given a vehicle stock of more than 54 million vehicles in Germany a task that seems to be unmanageable at first glance. But just this great task is the key to progress and more prosperity for everyone. Here, a hitherto neglected principle plays a major role. The energy through flexible and combinable exchangeable batteries. The prerequisite for a successful system is the agreement on standardization that is as global as possible. Once this step has been taken, everything else is just a small step towards implementation and thus ensuring electromobility for all. The replacement batteries can be used as a compromise, parallel to the already developed systems, in addition to ensure the operational readiness of electric vehicles. The already developed memory of the vehicle manufacturers should cover the basic supply of the vehicle, while the additional standard rechargeable batteries can increase the range of the vehicles at any time. Thus equipped can completely dispense with the traditional implementation of a hybrid or pure combustion engine and thus the CO2 emissions are reduced by the exhaust gases generated by vehicles sustainable to zero. The associated restructuring of energy supply, development tasks and many other dependent areas will, in contrast to the often feared reduction in workload, on the contrary lead to further tasks in almost all areas of industrial manufacturing and related business areas. The need for the complete renewal of the vehicle fleet will ensure the safeguarding of employment for years after the abolition of combustion vehicles. The applicability of the technology beyond its use in vehicles opens up enormous potential for further business ideas and markets. The increasing demand for employees, the cheaper prices of production through fewer components, allow again a more balanced wage level, this in turn affects the overall purchasing power of the population, the benefit and prosperity and the development of other advanced tasks can be addressed. The associated opposite development to the current split in impoverishment and decadence can thus lead to a more balanced society and reassurance. This in turn leads to more acceptance of different cultures and customs. More openness to other cultures and mutual help, in turn, to more health and a relief of these, and the downstream care areas. The holistic view raises the question of why this approach has received only insufficient attention. However, further debate on this would be unnecessary and idle given the urgency of the task. Therefore, now a way to implementation should be found and cooperation should be addressed.
