Due to Austria’s robust automotive supply sector, the development and manufacture of battery cells, modules, and packs as well as electric vehicles are of highest importance.
As a result, the Austrian National Battery Initiative was established by the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) in close collaboration with business and academia.
Despite the uneven distribution of electric vehicles, consumers appear to be purchasing an increasing number of these vehicles, steadily raising their share in the nation’s fleet.
In Austria, there are two thirds of passenger cars that are registered to businesses or other legal entities. According to the Federal Environment Agency in Austria, the average CO2-intensiveness of electric vehicles is lower than that of their counterparts powered by fossil fuels. Battery manufacture is included in this number. Additionally, if an electric vehicle is powered by renewable energy, the percentage rises.
The Austria Electric Vehicle Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
BMW will make an investment in Austrian electric vehicles. BMW, a German automaker, said that it would spend a significant amount of money building an Austrian factory to produce electric automobiles.
The investment plan is that the Steyr factory. According to BMW’s production chief, the company will “create and produce the next generation of e-drive” at the Austrian facility.
Two new production lines will be added as part of the facility renovation, and the area will be increased by 60,000 square metres.
Huge sums of money would need to be invested in the new facilities, and millions would go toward accelerating Steyr’s vehicle development.The site’s 4,400 employees would work on “e-mobility” to a degree of about half.
