  1. Overall a good development. The biggest disappointment is for me in the ID3. The annual result remains far behind the expectations. So completely does not exploit why. The rank is not fair to him. Possibly. are it the body bottlenecks.

  2. The pure E vehicles (cars) also include the FZ in which the electric motor is generated with the current of the hydrogen / fuel cell. This FZ also falls virtually under hybrid vehicles as they have also integrated a medium-sized Litiumakku. You can also drive purely battery electric.
