Renault Group, Siemens, and Valeo Automotive Announced a Strategic Partnership Memorandum for the Development of Next-Generation Electric Car
In February 2021, to design, jointly develop, and manufacture a new generation of electric motors in France without the use of rare earth, the Renault Group, Siemens, and Valeo Automotive announced that they had signed a Memorandum of Understanding. This collaboration will combine their skills and knowledge to create a distinctive electric drivetrain system that will be unmatched globally and provide more power while using less energy.
Favorable Public Policies and Subsidies to Boost Sales
Governments are implementing enticing incentives and regulations to promote electric car sales. It offers users several advantages, including lower selling prices, no registration or minimal registration fees, and free electric car infrastructure at numerous charging points. Additionally, several governments worldwide exempt purchase, import, and road tax based on various subsidies. Furthermore, these subsidies have encouraged automakers to increase their output. The government has also created beneficial policies and invested in building infrastructure. For instance, the U.S. government plans to invest USD 287 billion in highway improvements over the next five years.
High Manufacturing Costs are Limiting Market Expansion
Electric cars are better than conventional fuel vehicles. However, they are more expensive than gasoline-powered vehicles. Because they are not mass-produced, these cars have not yet benefited from economies of scale. Additionally, the lack of infrastructure for charging linked with the development has shown to be a drawback, which has hampered the market's expansion. The manufacturers also need a lot of money and resources, which could impede the market's expansion. However, the price of batteries is anticipated to decline in the next years due to increased mass production of batteries in significant volumes and technological breakthroughs.
Major Players Develop Acquisition Plans to Boost Brand Image
The leading businesses in the electric car market plan acquisitions to improve their brand recognition globally. For instance, in April 2022, to provide millions of vehicles across Stellantis' 14 iconic automotive brands with intelligent, customizable, and immersive in-vehicle experiences, Qualcomm Technologies Inc. and Stellantis entered into a multi-year technology collaboration.
