Byton CEO’s view on the electric car industry:
Electric car makers should be all in it together, according to Byton CEO Carsten Breitfeld – who has no plans to follow Tesla’s example with a network of proprietary Supercharger points. “What Tesla did was maybe necessary for them to be first, but this will not be the approach if you want to see proliferation of the electric car,” he said. For infrastructure to grow, the industry “can’t be using proprietary charging. Every EV manufacturer should be able to use them.”
Prince William to go electric:
Could Prince William emulate brother Harry, who left his wedding reception in an electric Jaguar E-Type, and buy a new Audi e-tron? Already a well-known Audi customer, William was spotted checking out the all- new electric SUV, due to be launched this autumn, while competing at a charity event backed by the marque.
