thinkstep’s new e-mobil BW study reveals solutions for electromobility’s raw materials problem.

Raw Materials for Innovative Vehicle Technologies

The new e-mobil BW study conducted by thinkstep on the raw material requirements of battery electric and fuel cell electric vehicles shows that lithium, cobalt, platinum, nickel, rare earth metals and copper should be classified as critical because of their expected significance for electric vehicles and their limited availability and substitutability. However, modern technologies, such as electromobility, can only be successful and accepted if raw materials are available, inexpensive and sustainably extracted.
