How do I get from point A to point B in the countryside? What are the advantages of an electric car in the subscription model? And what will our mobility look like in 20 years? "2 Strangers for Mobility" approaches topics such as mobility and digitization differently and brings together people who don't know who they are talking to. One of the experts is always from Daimler Mobility AG, and the other comes from research, journalism, or the start-up scene, depending on the topic of the podcast. Together, our guests look beyond their own horizons, provide deep insights into their subject area, and surprise each other with thought-provoking impulses.
