‘Streetscooter’: First Large Bankruptcy In Electric Mobility

Recommended Posts

"When the Green Economy meets Capitalism, one or the other will die; in this case, the eco-socialists in Germany bit the dust and the first large electric mobility bankruptcy should send a strong message to the rest of the world. ⁃ TN Editor

"Manufacturer “Streetscooter”, purchased by Deutsche Post (German Post) in 2014, will be scrapped. The German media of course blame it on “bad management” by the large company.

Which city dweller doesn’t know the small, yellow electric scooters of the German post office that the postmen and women deliver letters and small packages to citizens comfortably and efficiently? Not long ago I received news via Facebook on how the e-delivery-vehicles just barely made it back to the post office, especially in winter, and only when the heating is off.

Now the management of the Swiss Post is also following suit and ending the experiment with delivery street scooters."

Another example: 

The Berlin E-bus experiment: the lithium buses run from 8 to 12 a.m., then the diesel vehicles take overOur speaker Prof. Alt talks in this context about a double infrastructure, which is of course also roughly twice as expensive. Presumably Deutsche Post had to manage a similarly inefficient double fleet of about 13,000 street scooters. The scooters broke down more often and then soon had to be repaired, and replaced by diesel-powered delivery vans.

More proof that government can't dictate fiscal futures.  The economy is best left to run itself, then all the participants have a hand in determining the outcome, instead of some select few politicians who are ignorant to much of how life works and only mess things up with their lack of skill in anything.

If you can't function within a budget than you shouldn't be allowed to make fiscal policy!

As I used to tell the students in my business plan classes,  no matter how brilliant your business idea is, there is usually a reason no one is doing it in your area

What's funny is when the budding entrepreneur believes that it will work because no one has ever thought of it before.

I was asked why I worked so feverishly on my Patent Applications.  I told them that the information I came across that results in a potential Patent, is being looked at, at the same time by numerous other qualified people, since we all have access to the same information at the same time.

So the Patent is issued to the first to apply.  It's just   a race, as in all other aspects of our lives.

Green isn't a magic word.  If no one wants it, it won't go no matter how good it is.  :shooting-two-guns:
