Electric vehicles

Everyone agrees that 20 years from now, we will all be driving electric cars. It is a development that will help to reduce fine particles by 75 % compared with their current amount (MOBI article). As some of the fine particles result from brake wear, tyre wear and road abrasion, this new type of engine doesn’t solve the problem completely. However, in the next few years, we shall begin to notice the beneficial effect from the growing electric car fleet on air quality.

Uplace will provide a large number of charging points for electric cars and bicycles in its car parks. Modern communication channels will allow owners of electric vehicles to pre-book a space where they can charge their vehicleSan Francisco already has them. And in Europe, the legal framework is being prepared for the first tests: self-driving cars are on their way.

Self-driving cars

San Francisco already has them. And in Europe, the legal framework is being prepared for the first tests: self-driving cars are on their way. Cars that don’t need a driver are efficient and will revolutionise our current view of passenger transportation.Carpooling is on the rise. People are tired of paying parking fees and expensive insurance, and having to invest in a product that loses value. Combined with self-driving cars, this makes for an attractive future, in which a fleet of unmanned ‘taxis’ will fulfill a large part of the mobility demand. You get into the car, it drives you to your destination and you get out. You don’t lose time parking the car, and only pay for the journey. After dropping you off, the car drives itself to the next passenger. This development has now taken off in many parts of the world. In cities like Amsterdam, Vienna and Stuttgart the Car2GO project has already proved hugely successful.
