Comparative analysis of the competitive position of the EU automotive industry and the impact of the introduction of autonomous vehicles
Based on an overview of current costs of manufacturing vehicles in the major global auto markets it is analyzed how major trends in each market are likely to affect these costs through time. The project is led by Ricardo AEA. Different pricing strategies and international comparativeness are analyzed to understand how well positioned the various markets are and how the EU auto industry could best position itself to take advantage of these global trends and ensure that it maintains or grows its market share in the future. The model GINFORS_E will be applied to develop different scenarios of global automotive market development until 2030 and beyond to quantify opportunities for EU manufacturers.
