The smarter E Podcast Episode 138 | June 22, 2023 | Language: German

The fact that the electrification of vehicle fleets is currently experiencing rapid growth is inevitable: in view of climate change, the search for possible solutions is becoming increasingly urgent. In addition to private households, many companies are therefore also working to minimize their ecological footprint. One way to do this is to switch to a green fleet. But how is the electrification of vehicle fleets going in Germany? What are the biggest hurdles? And what legal and political regulations need to be considered?
