This was the consensus of the participants in the debate "Electromobility and a fair green transformation", which took place last week at the Hyundai car plant in Nosovice. The famous 007 film agent James Bond was also present. According to top Hyundai executives, it is almost inevitable that he will eventually switch to an electric car.
