What is the vision for 2020? What are the main elements of the electric mobility system?

Electric mobility protects the climate, environment and resources, promotes technological innovations and enables new business models. It is a task that encompasses all sections of society and covers a great deal more than just electric vehicles. Numerous components – from drive technologies to charging infrastructure – come together to form the electric mobility system. At the heart of this are the users. To ensure that they can choose from a range of offerings and that only the best technologies and services win through, the German National Platform for Electric Mobility (NPE) pursues an approach that is market-orientated and open to different technologies.

The targets

The common goal of industry, politicians, science, civil society and trade unions is to make Germany the leading supplier and lead market by 2020. Along the entire value chain, from batteries to web-based services for electric mobility, German manufacturers are technological pioneers.
The aim is to achieve one million electric vehicles on Germany’s roads by 2020. The market in Germany should possess international appeal through attractive products and services in a user-oriented system of electric mobility.
