Sales of battery electric vehicles have massively taken off across Europe. Gigawatt hours worth of battery capacity are needed to propel those vehicles. European, Asian and American investors are therefore investing billions into the development of a European battery cell production.
But isn't it too late already? Were earlier refusals by well-known European suppliers to enter this race wise? How fast is the market growing? And will European plants be able to keep up with established Asian production sites in terms of pricing?
Last but not least, what can Europeans actually do better than their non-European competitors? What could be the advantages of producing in countries like Germany, France and Poland?
We will talk about this on Tuesday, 2nd March, from 2 p.m. to 2.45 p.m. We will be joined by four highly important players in this new and exciting field.
Our guests are:
- Yann Vincent, CEO Automotive Cells Company
- Dirk Wollenhaupt, CEO SVolt Europe
- Matthias Zentgraf, President Europe CATL
- Arnulf Wulff, Senior Vice President LEG Thüringen
The discussion will be moderated by Automobilwoche reporter Michael Knauer. Participation is free, all you need to do is register. Register here now!
