Stromer target of the project is,. Finally, he adds the niche market small, efficiency-optimised vehicles with electric drive to occupy to well over 60% and may be increasing”.

In a study conducted for the Federal Ministry of transport, 1991 by H. Hautzinger, a theoretical market potential is calculated by about 5 million vehicles in Germany.
An investigation of the VDA 1994 predicted a stock of 474.000 electric vehicles for the year 2000. “Actually but the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt for the year 2000 not even reports 2,500 approved vehicles with electric drive”, reveals Klaus Meiler, responsible for business development at HS Genion, a number that has hardly changed to this day. “There are obvious reasons for this huge gap between the potential of the market and its actual development: the electric vehicles developed mostly on private initiative have almost entirely conceptual weaknesses, lacks a professional marketing and the available battery power is not sufficient to achieve the range and performance that customers expect.” In the new city car are therefore the most recently available Li-ion and Li-polymer batteries used, thanks to which the mentioned performance problems can be overcome. A mature vehicle concept, a marketing oriented to the right target groups and a simple, but effective service system should make this recent under the electric vehicles market success. The goal? “The Stromer is the first electric vehicle that really works”, finally adds to the pile.
