a mission to drive environmental & social change

About

What happens when three mobility-mad grownups like us meet and start thinking about the future of mobility and transportation? Well, you are looking at the result: MOTION Magazine, the first international platform on smart mobility that captures the lifestyle, emotional and environmental side of the industry's electrification. After witnessing the phase of avant-gardists testing the waters of electric and smart mobility solutions around the world, we are now in the process of taking the next steps toward global mass adoption. However, we noticed that much of the content surrounding the electric vehicle and smart mobility topics mostly focused on the technical, business and product side of the things. We wanted to change that.

Our Aim

MOTION's aim is to accompany you through your journey toward electrification from a lifestyle and cultural approach. We will be presenting you with the realities of owning an electric vehicle through real-life stories of people, organizations and cities that have decided to make a bold switch. Don't worry though, we will still be telling you which of the latest Tesla killer to consider buying next, how far a single battery charge goes or which manufacturer is about to take off next… just with a different twist. We hope to be a factor in your decision-making process on your way to driving an environmentally friendly car. From starting your research on electric cars, to your first test drive, to the selection of your own personal charging solution and all the way to finally making your first all-electric vehicle purchase, we will be introducing you to topics that promote the best impact on a sustainable future. 

So who are we?

With the rise of the ‘E’ - the electric way of transportation - we have fallen in love with sustainable and exciting new vehicles. Whether in an electric car, on E-Bikes, E-Mopeds or E-Scooters, our excitement about discovering and driving these vehicles kept on growing the past few years.  In the past years, we have been inundating our friends and families with this certain bright smile on our face, when we spoke about experiencing an electric vehicle. Let us take you along on our journey as we experience the acceleration of mobility innovation and the beauty of its social, economic and environmental impact.
