“I'm surprised at how seamless the transition from the smartphone to the vehicle's Connect system is and how effortlessly it gets me to my destination.”
“When I was a kid, my dad was still using paper maps to navigate. Thankfully, those days are over. I think it's great to be able to sit on the sofa and configure a new route using my smartphone. Then all I have to do is hop in and drive away,” says the 39-year-old, as he glances at his smartphone display.
First Mile/Last Mile Navigation is an App-based service from

Sylt was the birthplace of the surfing scene in Germany almost 70 years ago. Ken learned to skateboard and surf not long after he'd mastered walking. He went on to become German surfing champion and was a member of the national team. At the age of 18 he moved to San Diego in the USA, where he studied business and marketing while working part-time in a skate shop. In 2010, he received a job offer too good to refuse and moved back to Hamburg, closer to his roots, where he now lives with his wife and daughter. He currently runs his own label, Marine Machine, and works as an agent in the fashion industry.
In addition to being a surfing and skateboarding enthusiast, he is passionate about air-cooled

The specified charging outputs and times (hour/minutes) are dependent on various factors: in general, the charging output and time can vary due to physical and chemical limits, depending on factors such as the available output of the country-specific energy infrastructure, the customer's own domestic installation, the temperature, interior pre-conditioning and charging status, as well as the age of the battery. Charging times may therefore be significantly higher than those specified. To achieve the optimum value of the specified DC charging time (DC = direct current) for a charge status increase from 5 to 80%, a CCS (combined charging system) fast-charging pedestal with > 270kW and > 850V is required, as well as a battery temperature of 30°–35°C. The charging status when commencing charging must not exceed 5%. For physical and chemical reasons, the charging speed decreases as the battery approaches its full capacity. Therefore, it usually makes sense to use fast DC charging to charge the battery up to 80% or up to the required range. The predominant use of CCS fast charging pedestals leads to a long-term increase in charging times. For regular fast DC charging, we recommend a maximum charging output of 50kW. When charging in a domestic environment, AC charging (AC = alternating current) is recommended. Using an (AC) industrial electrical outlet will result in improved efficiency and a much shorter charging time compared to using a household socket.
