People love to challenge ideas at the start. The makers of StreetScooter approached things differently: they challenged the status quo they were presented with instead. In their view, the convenctional process of innovation and developing new, sustainable products was too much complicated and too expensive. In the automobile industry, this takes many years and costs billions.The rapid development of an unusual company emerging from the RWTH Aachen University and now part of Deutsche Post DHL demonstrates how a radically different innovative thinking leads to affordable functionality. It is an e-mobile success story about a vehicle that is customized, economic, ecological, flexible, safe and reliable.
