Interessante Studie hier von KPMG und darüber, was die Führungskräfte der Automobilhersteller über die Zukunft denken. Überraschend definitiv ist #2, die #4 wird aus unserer Sicht tatsächlich sehr spannend in Zukunft!
1. INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES TO REMAIN RELEVANT TO OEMS
As stated in the report, 76% of executives see ICE’s (internal combustion engines) as still being more important than electric technologies for a long time to come.
2. BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLES WILL FAIL; FUEL CELL ELECTRIC VEHICLES WILL WIN
The major difference between battery electric vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles? BEVs run exclusively on electricity by batteries that are charged by plugging into an outlet or charging station, and FCEVs have an electric motor like a BEV, but stores hydrogen gas in a tank instead of recharging.
Even though battery electric vehicles are a main trend, 62% of executives believe BEVs will fail due to a lack of being able to successfully set up infrastructure for charging.
3. BMW IS PERCEIVED AS THE LEADER IN AUTONOMOUS DRIVING TECHNOLOGY
Also leading as the perceived electric mobility pioneer at 16% of votes, 27% of executives voted BMW as the leader in autonomous driving technology.
4. IN THE FUTURE, THE DIGITAL ECOSYSTEM WILL GENERATE MORE REVENUE THAN THE HARDWARE OF THE CAR ITSELF
As cars start to drive themselves, the main revenue stream shifts away from the hardware and towards the digital ecosystem, with data being the core and most essential element.
5. 50% OF CAR OWNERS TODAY WON’T WANT TO OWN A CAR BY 2025
While it is perhaps more subtle, the tendency away from car ownership is already relevant today, particularly amongst the millennial generation and early adopters of shared mobility.
