Electric Mobility Innovation Leader
Germany is a global electric mobility technology leader. Significant efforts are also being made in the area of battery and cell research; particularly in the area of material and process technologies for lithium-ion systems that will lead to a new generation of high-energy and high-performance battery systems. By 2020, the industry alone will have invested around EUR 40 billion in electric mobility development. This will see German automotive manufacturers more than treble their range of available electric vehicles from over 30 to 100 models. The federal government supports e-mobility R&D activities with funding of around quarter of a billion euros annually.
