Invest cost savings in e-mobility production equipment

Case Study

How to gain investment cost advantages in production equipment during transformation from internal combustion technology to e-Drive technologies.

Massive investment required for e-mobility transformation

Material, production machines and equipment: The production of electric cars is currently still significantly more expensive than that of vehicles with an internal combustion engine.


OEMs and automotive suppliers must invest significantly into new production equipment to manage the transfer from combustion technology to e-mobility.

From 2019 to 2029 it is expected that OEMs will make investments of at least 300 bn US$ in eMobility technologies transformation


Competitiveness is at stake

To remain competitive, players in the automotive industry must consistently address the cost optimization potential of new technologies along the entire value stream.


However, Tsetinis’ analysis shows that the required investment optimization capabilities are not yet mature in many cases. This puts billons of savings at risk and will have a massive impact on future competitiveness.

Our proven approach reduces risks significantly
