e-HikeLink's picture

The objective of the roadmap on a “European Technology and Production Concept for Electric Vehicles“ (ETPC-4-EVs) is to support the development and implementation of all those global processes, methods and technologies that allow to produce hybrid and fully electric vehicles affordable for and thereby attractive to the customer.
As shown in the figure below, electric vehicles are just starting to enter the market win increasing numbers of models and there are many problems unresolved, so far that might pose a bottleneck to significant market penetration: first and maintenance cost of the vehicle, electric charging infrastructure, communication and service infrastructure.
