Automotive World Magazine – December 2023

Growing environmental pressure, strict emissions targets, and limited grid capacity mean that hydrogen will inevitably play a role in the energy transition. Players are exploring not only hydrogen fuel cells and range extenders but also hydrogen internal combustion engines and hydrogen-fuelled charging stations for battery electric vehicles. One forecast puts the global hydrogen market value at US$317bn by 2032. Even a small slice of that market could prove a lucrative business. This month we take a closer look at this evolving ecosystem and some of the players jockeying for a leadership role.

We also hear from BMW, Scania and Nissan on how electrification is reshaping their product offering, R&D and business strategies, and explore the implications of Schaeffler’s acquisition of Vitesco within the wider EV supply consolidation trend.
