E-mobility index for Q3 2013
OEMs have been successful in developing technology for e-mobility worldwide, with vehicles now ready for series production. The price of an electric car is thus falling sharply, as the e-mobility index for Q3 2013 from Roland Berger Strategy Consultants and Forschungsgesellschaft Kraftfahrwesen mbH Aachen (fka) shows.
The index compares the competitive positions of the seven leading automotive nations (Germany, France, Italy, the US, Japan, China and South Korea) in the field of e-mobility. The indicators technology, industry and market were analyzed.
"The rising level of technological maturity means that there are fewer public subsidies for research into e-mobility," explains Wolfgang Bernhart, Partner at Roland Berger Strategy Consultants. "Instead, individual countries are trying to boost EV sales with targeted subsidy programs and expand the recharging infrastructure."
