“Shortly before Winfried Kretschmann was elected Prime Minister of Baden-Württemberg in May 2011, he said in an interview with Bild am Sonntag: “Less cars are of course better than more. In the future, we must sell mobility concepts and not just cars. This includes running, cycling, driving, railing.” Kretschmann is a green, but not a stupid man. It must be credited to him that he has never spoken out in this way again. Would also be funny for the prime minister of a country where some major car manufacturers and suppliers are based.
