Excellent! the experience, the feed back form of our customers are, very, very good, very positive, driving range all that kind of things for -- it's very good therefore it's big motivation for us to follow up that idea. Well, immobility is for us let's say the second step, first application London, second one will be in Berlin. It is in, let's say more mature, technical concept from the Smart side, from the battery side, but additionally we will have an infrastructure, energy infrastructure for that and that kind of combination, what is the behavior of customer, what is cost out of that and so on and so on, we will track that intensively in Berlin.
Well, it's just a perspective -- our time schedule for the future, what is today, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow could come up for that, and how we can combine several technologies and then application in small cars like Smart A- class, B-class or in S-class, what is the appropriate and the right technology for the right car. Well there is no doubt about, and therefore we try to take care in order to compensate that, on the other side. May be we have to think about that mobility and behavior of mobility will change in the future.
If you look at your cell phone and the battery, there is inside the normal behavior of customer is to plug that directly in the grid and therefore you are always more or less in a very, very good shape for that. And I could imagine that those kind of behavior, we would transfer to mobility and individual mobility as well. Well it's a question or cell production it is not that easy, clear. And out of the cell you have to produce a real time system and the system by itself, it's a question of cooling, it's a question of safety by itself and therefore the know-how in detail, I think it's important in order to be mature enough to go for the market.
Well, the full hybrid is just the question of short period of time. For us, it was important to be as quick and as fast as possible on the market, to reduce complexity on the one side, but on the other side, there is still or in parallel, the development of -- it's a question of -- let's say capacity of battery and of course the capability of the motor but it's very soon for that.
Well, the mother concept is for us the real tool set in order to be able to reduce on the one side complexity, to reduce cost there and having let's say the possibility to adapt that technology to small cars, mid sized cars and big cars as well.
