From Combustion Engine To E-Mobility: Transitions In The Value-Added Chain

“Electrification is the future job motor.” This was the summary of an e-mobil BW 2015 structural study. The automobile and supplier industry ascribed good opportunities to becoming leading providers of electric mobility and creating tens of thousands of new jobs until 2025. The Institute for Automobile Economics anticipates that vehicle manufacturers will expand product ranges and within ten years may record a 20 percent share of their sales with battery or fuel cell vehicles as well as with plug-in hybrid vehicles.
