Graz Transportation design show

A friend of mine at work teaches digital rendering at Graz University and he gave the students a KTM design project, so we went down to check that out and the rest of the show.
Gerald Kiska gives his feedback to the students.

the university is right next to a train manufacturers.

This is about all I saw of Graz but the show was really good, and we had a bbq afterwards bottom left of the photo above.
They made a movie which they were going to show to some key players in the Auto industry from Audi and BMW, and they interviewed me for it.
Question: What can the Auto industry learn from the students at Graz?
Answer: On a day when the price of a barrel of oil hit a new historic high of over $143 a barrel, why is it all of the students projects incorporate progressive electric engines into their vehicles whilst the big Car companies are still focusing on internal combustion engines? We don’t have long to transition away from Fossil fuels so if the students are aware of this, why are the big car companies who must be aware of this, not doing more?

    “These fears are not groundless. The magnitude of the problems yet to be faced could be much greater than many now perceive,” it said. “It is not impossible that the unwinding of the credit bubble could, after a temporary period of higher inflation, culminate in a deflation that might be hard to manage, all the more so given the high debt levels.”

    Na, it’s more complicated than that man, there are over 2000 specialist engineers working at Volkswagen for example who all have a serious interest in keeping the status quo going by continuing with combustion engines.
