Kiel, 2015-07-01: Wattläufer: Small seabird that prefers to be in coastal areas, particularly the mud flats of Schleswig-Holstein. And/or: Wattläufer: The new BMW i 3 electric car from DESIGNA, CO2-free and chargeable in 6-8 hours.
DESIGNA employees and customers are delighted about the addition to the DESIGNA fleet. The new BMW i 3 with the silver "Wattläufer" logo has been on the road in the Kiel region emission-free and silently since the 29th of May.
DESIGNA is endeavouring to act in an ecologically sustainable way, reduce CO2 emissions and also position itself on the market as an innovative company by using an electric company vehicle. "As a technological leader in the industry, DESIGNA is always open to innovative ideas and new projects", emphasised Thomas Waibel, CEO DESIGNA when taking delivery of the BMW i3. "We are looking forward to gathering experience in a new area, and have found an environmentally friendly and sustainable solution with our "Wattläufer".
With a range of up to 230 km (Range Extender) at a speed of 100 km/h (top speed of 150 km/h) and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds, the "Wattläufer" is fast and therefore ideal for short trips to customer sites. And with its own "filling station" (in the form of a Wattläufer charging column) round the corner, charging is also as good as automatic.
Incidentally, according to a current study carried out by the Institute for Traffic Research at the German Aerospace Centre (DLR - Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt) in Cologne (May 2015), 84 % of all private owners would recommend purchasing an electric vehicle. We are waiting eagerly.
