In times when China’s e-mobility sector takes off, German automotive know-how can be key.

China’s challenges in e-vehicle commercialization

The Chinese government actively promotes the development and market launch of the e-vehicle. It has set ambitious growth targets for the electric vehicles market, aiming to have 0.5 million vehicles on the road by 2015 and 5 million units by 2020 .

Despite China’s breakthroughs in e-mobility research and development, challenges remain in the areas of industrialization, the industrial chain and certain technologies.

Sharing e-mobility expertise with Germany

The German automobile industry has been very successful in developing a range of technical solutions for e-mobility. The focus has hereby been put on how e-mobility can reduce the environmental effects of air pollutants and noise, especially in cities.

Key technologies and products developed in order to achieve this goal include innovative lightweight materials for e-vehicles as well as further alternative power vehicles and battery systems.

Enabling mass production

By teaming up with German companies, the Chinese e-mobility sector can benefit from this expertise. As a world-famous country for its automotive industry, Germany can also help China develop the necessary infrastructure to facilitate mass production.
