Hi, I’m Alex Bangula!
E-cars and the topic of electromobility simply electrify me. For five years now, I’ve been reporting on everything to do with electromobility on my “Electrified” YouTube channel. I’m inspired by the whole turnaround in mobility – moving away from fossil fuels to driving with renewable energy and ever-improving driver assistance systems. There are few areas that have developed so quickly and so positively.
90,000 subscribers follow my current “Electrified” YouTube channel. My videos are sometimes even watched by hundreds of thousands of people. They show me testing new electric models, driving long distances across Europe and reporting on the everyday challenges of e-cars. Perhaps the most spectacular journey so far was the one in an electric car from Munich to the Arctic Circle. Or the trip to Mallorca – not on a budget airplane, but in an electric car. I’m all about honest, up-close videos that break down prejudices and at the same time don’t sugarcoat anything. I want to make the topic of electromobility accessible to anyone interested.
The charging infrastructure has been very well developed in recent years and is at a solid level. Thanks to charging apps, even long trips are easy to plan. However, I still often find that the stations are not adequately maintained. From time to time, charging stations charge slower than specified or don’t work at all. In addition, the chargers are sometimes blocked by internal-combustion vehicles. Municipalities should pay more attention to this and consistently issue parking tickets or tow the cars away.
In addition to affordable electric cars, the most important thing for electrification is that we have a functioning, comprehensive charging network throughout Europe. Many people still decide against an electric car because charging options are sometimes limited, especially in eastern and southern Europe, and many would like to go on vacation by car. In addition to affordable electric cars with good range, the most important thing for electrification is that we have a functioning, comprehensive charging network throughout Europe. I’m happy to say that I’ve been driving purely electric for over five years now. It feels good to know that you’re doing something for the environment and can make a difference with your own actions.
