Martin Zaimov, Deputy Chairman
Martin is an EV user and has been advocate for electric mobility since 2010. He believes that the present model of the world developement is unsustainable and potentially fatal for the people. We need radical changes in the big world industries, consumers behaviour, urban planning and the addiction to the constant growth and indebtness. Electric mobility is a rational and viable cause. Its success would demonstrate a possibility for radical change in one of the biggest industries and would contribute for cleaner air in the cities, lower levels of noise, agression and greenhouse gases.
