Article from Wirthschaftswoche - electric busses on their way

Considerably amount of money has to be invested in this transition and the speed at which this would realistically be possible is not fast. Projections in the surv are way more concervative than what we at 4-leaf Consulting estimates - however cities like Hamburg is really trying to speed up the transition during agressive targets for this.
