ICT is enjoying ever greater significance in the vehicle and for the
connection of vehicle and energy infrastructure, for networking of
the user and for development of overlapping mobility management
systems, and it is the connecting link between the automotive sec-
tor and the energy sector.
For development of new business models for electromobile propul-
sion concepts, the priority is to compensate for specific disadvanta-
ges, such as reduced range, and to optimally exploit the advantages
of electromobility (see Fig. 26).
For example, these advantages are lower energy costs, (primarily
lower costs for fuel and maintenance) and good performance data.
Thus, with electric vehicles, high torque can be achieved at low rpm
and powerful acceleration (in the low speed range) can be achie-
ved. The environmental compatibility of the vehicles through local
emission-free driving and low noise level, additionally results in
image advantages over conventional combustion engine vehicles.
These characteristics make battery electric vehicles the ideal
city car. In the major metropolitan areas in particular, the con-
flict between the compelling necessity for mobility of people
and goods, and the negative effects of traffic (such as noise, the
pollution burden on people and the environment, as well as the re-
quirement for resources and space) is clearly evident. Given the pre-
requisite of a specific market penetration, electromobility promises
