For Hannes Mechler, these weren’t the decisive factors behind his move to the new neighbourhood. The young professional appreciates the fast internet and the proximity to popular cycle paths and running tracks. “At the end of the working day, I like to sit on the balcony. That’s very different from my student accommodation,” he said.
In a trial period with the all-electric ID.3, Mechler learned about and grew to appreciate the benefits of electric mobility. “The acceleration is so much fun,” he said. For him, charging – which is a concern for many people – isn’t an issue. At home, in Steimker Gardens, he was able to charge the car in the underground car park without having to sit and wait around. During weekend trips to Baden-Württemberg, one to two stops per journey were all that were needed. “I find it easy to manage. And you even meet interesting people at the charging station.”
