The Current Challenges of the Automobile Manufacturers (2019)


what do you think of the, what do you think
in terms of this what you’ve just explained for a startup. What do you think of the automotive hardware
supply chain right now, in which direction is it going on Munich, or in Germany overall? Yeah, I think at the moment, there’s a lot
of stuff happening, I mean especially, you know with the electrification. we have the diesel scandal which shook up
the whole automotive industry a few years ago, now everybody seems to go electric. we still don’t have a lot of electric cars
on the road. I think there’s still a lot of controversial
discussions if this is now the one answer or not. What else I’ve found it interesting is that hydrogen
is becoming more and more popular we even have some interesting hydrogen startup here
in Germany by coincidence * is just you know at the other side of the road, they turn
normal diesel engine into hydrogen engine and so forth And I think what we will see is traditional
automotive manufactures that bore adjust basically forming methyl or doing relatively simple
things now are in danger because their component may not be needed or now they have to make
them smart because cars becoming smart so all of these automotive manufacturers are
you know challenged and then again you have a lot of other companies that are studying
spin-off you know a new product divisions, a lot of startups. But on the other hand, I think we have so
many smart people in Germany that we will master this.
