Views on the scenarios for a mobility transition pathway
In January 2022, the European Commission published its vision for the transition of the mobility ecosystem. This document includes a range of scenarios for transforming the automotive, rail and shipping industries – encouraging synergies between these sectors.
In response, the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), the European Association of Automotive Suppliers (CLEPA), the European Council for Motor Trades and Repairs (CECRA) and the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers’ Association (ETRMA) have published their ‘10-point action plan for a resilient, innovative, sustainable and digital mobility ecosystem’.
Employees and consumers should be at the heart of the transformation of the automotive sector, the associations argue. The environmental and digital implications of the Green Deal should be key pillars of the transition pathway, not forgetting recent supply chain disruptions caused by COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine.
