Visit to the VOL­TIMER Com­pany in the HNU Mas­ter's Pro­gram Com­mu­nic­a­tion and Design for Sus­tain­ab­il­ity

25.05.2023, Study :

The Communication and Design for Sustainability (M.A.) degree program is about the transparent design of transformation and transition processes in terms of sustainability. Fittingly, Johannes Boddien, CEO and founder of the company VOLTIMER, was a guest at Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences (HNU) in a lecture on May 23, 2023. The company sustainably converts classic cars to electric drive.

The company from Blaustein has already been electrifying classics such as the VW Beetle or the VW Bulli for six years. Johannes Boddien came to the lecture by course director Prof. Dr. Markus Caspers with a converted Mercedes-Benz /8, a dainty family sedan by today's standards that can keep up in today's traffic with zero emissions after conversion to an electric vehicle: A good example of upcycling, re-use, transformation and a future-oriented business model. 

The founder discussed his business model with the HNU students, answered questions and even let the students take a test drive around campus.
