Your company is taking part at the micromobility expo as an exhibitor and forum speaker. What will you be focusing on? What are you hoping to gain from participating at the event?

"We will be focusing on the role that Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles needs to play in shaping change in urban logistics and what that means for our products. We are looking forward to stimulating and valuable discussions on these matters both at our showcase and in the various forums."

How will/can lightweight electric vehicles change transport as we know it?

"Lightweight electric vehicles are an opportunity to provide alternative, emission-free solutions for our inner cities, particularly last-mile solutions. Lightweight electric logistics solutions and products will be a key part of this."

What are the current challenges facing the transport sector and micromobility?

"Our core business at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is and always will be lightweight commercial vehicles. However, we must – and will – face up to the current challenges in urban goods delivery and continue to give our customers the products and solutions they need, such as the urban logistics and cargo bike solutions. In the future, sustainable, eco-friendly processes and products will shape the look and feel of our inner cities. At Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, we want to ensure that we play a part in this."
