WHAT INSPIRES YOU?  
The satisfaction of seeing a pioneering product positively impacting people's lives is what drives me to evolve in the field of product development.

Building a high calibre engineering team and working in a highly professional and motivated environment is my driving force. I love working with outstanding personalities. This fuels my passion for realising innovative ideas for series vehicles.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE XBUS?
I like the unique combination of iconic design, platform modularity. I also like the wide range of possible use cases of the XBUS, which is highly appreciated by our clients.

WHAT ENGINEERS AND WHAT CAR MODELS DO YOU ADMIRE?
Since I was a child I have been a huge fan of classic Porsche cars. At the same time I am also very fond of practical vehicles. With the Volkswagen Bulli T1 standing out as a favourite, which was created by Alfred Haesner, based on the Ben Pons concept.

Those who want to purchase a distinctive vehicle which will become a long-term family companion. The XBUS can be used for picking up the kids from school, moving to a new apartment, embarking on summer camping trips, or fulfilling daily business transportation requirements.
