Electric vehicles are disrupting the delicate ecosystem of automotive component manufacturers, they must think carefully about their next move

Stick or Twist

Moore Global

The car industry has generated wealth for generations of family-owned component manufacturers and well-paid jobs for millions. Now this delicately balanced ecosystem is facing an existential challenge with the rise of electric vehicles.

Companies which have become world leaders in the development and production of specialist components for traditional petrol and diesel cars have a dilemma: to continue with the successful formula that has served them well for decades or divert significant financial resources to the entirely different technologies required to power electric vehicles (EVs).

Three million electric cars were registered in 2020, according to the International Energy Agency and that pushed the total number of EVs on the roads past 10 million, with the main concentration in Europe. However, with around 90 million vehicles being produced globally each year that means the majority of markets are still buying traditional fossil-fuelled cars.

“The shift we see in Europe is driven by EU regulations that oblige the big car brands to change their product portfolio but unless there is the same regulatory change in other countries, they simply will not do that,” says Thomas Ziegler, leader of Moore Global’s automotive group. “I think the US will be the next to adopt EVs in big numbers but India, China and large parts of the world will stick with combustion technology for quite a while.”

My credit score just got raised from a range of 510 to a score above 799 with the help of a Credit Film i met from an old friend. My credit report was very poor and it’s really affecting my financial status when trying to purchase a home of my choice. I shared my problems with an old friend of mine I met in a restaurant then she referred me to Trovian Credit Repair she hires in fixing her credit few months ago. I reached them for help and to my greatest they fixed my credit and cleared the bankruptcy, student loans, tax liens, utility bills, inquires. Need help fixing your credit report as well?
