On this site, we, two people from southern Germany, write about personal experiences with electric cars and current news. We report independently about the order transactions and test drives, about the delivery of the vehicles and about our positive and negative experiences associated with electromobility. We will acquire a Sono Sion and a Volkswagen ID. as company cars, as soon as possible. They both are expected for delivery beginning in 2020.


No responsibility is taken for the correctness of this information. The articles on this site about electromobility and different electric car models are based on personal experience and on current news. They are not sponsored or supported by the car manufacturers.
