Does electromobility and ecological consciousness go together?
Going back a few years to the first half of the 2010-2020 decade, I was attending a lecture on renewable energy sources and their future use in the energy profile of the consumer.
The professor had just finished one of the best and most complete lectures and presentations on energy topics that I have attended (and I have attended many). It was time for everyone to leave. To my surprise I found that the professor got into one of the largest and most ferocious motor cars I have ever seen. The exhausts were quadruple and the vehicle was shouting from far "I am burning fossil fuels"!
At the same time, the essence of the wonderful lecture I had just attended had just been canceled in my subconscious.
Today, as 2021 bids us farewell, we have the appearance of many electric vehicles and electric scooters on Greek roads while at the same time there is the continuous development of a support network of charging stations. The companies are announcing successive new models of electric scooters and electric vehicles that will be put into production in the coming years while the interest of the buying public is gradually increasing.
A key question, along with others, arises in the minds of many people. Does electromobility and ecological consciousness go together?
Can a company through its corporate profile and philosophy promote an image that is inconsistent with its transportation options?
For example, what would it be like for a company that operates in the field of energy saving if it had a corporate fleet without electric scooters or electric vehicles, but with gasoline scooters and internal combustion engines of older technology?
Another typical example comes from the food field. With the rise of vegetarianism in recent years, what would it be like for a company that sells plant-organic products for vegetarians and promotes an ecological lifestyle if you had similar vehicles and scooters with internal combustion engines instead of electric scooters of zero pollution?
As you can see, on the one hand the image towards the public is contradictory, on the other hand it can have devastating consequences on the sales and acceptance of the product being marketed.
At WheelnWater Technologies, if we are proud of anything, it is when we talk about who we are and what we stand for as a company in the field of electric scooting and electric scooter marketing. Our vision is and will remain the spread of electricity throughout our country.
So, answering the original question of the title I would say that in the final analysis, the ecological consciousness marries with electromobility, however the marriage is still late.
At a later stage in the development of e-mobility, ecological awareness can be extended beyond the smart, clean and economical travel options in our daily lives, to a wider category of options.
Let us keep in mind for the time being that electrification is a seed that has begun to sprout in the minds of all of us. The fruits are a matter of time to be seen by the general public in the coming years.
