the Transition to electric vehicles by 2030 could lead to a loss of 410 000 jobs in Germany, writes the newspaper Handelsblatt on Monday.
Only in the segment of production of engines and transmissions under reduction will get about 88 000 jobs, the newspaper said, citing a report of the National platform for the future of mobility (NPM), an Advisory Council under the government.
the report said that the engines of the electric vehicles consist of fewer parts and require less maintenance than internal combustion engines, which will lead to massive layoffs in the automobile industry.
car Production will be further automated and will not be sufficient to maintain the current level of jobs, writes Handelsblatt.
In 2018, the employment in the automotive industry in Germany has reached 834 000, the highest figure since 1991.
the Main body of the automotive industry (VDA), which in December warned about the loss of jobs in 2020 because of falling global auto sales, said that the forecast of the NPM is based on "unrealistic extreme scenarios".
the Industry, which is an important factor in the growth of Europe's largest economy, is accelerating plans to launch electric vehicles under pressure from the European Union aimed at further reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
