Employment implications of the mobility transition: sustainable mobility and connected and automated driving

Authors (M-Five):
Dr. Wolfgang Schade

The transition to sustainable mobility will change industrial structures in Germany. More than 100,000 jobs will get lost in manufacturing of combustion engines. New jobs will emerge in development and manufacturing of electric cars and assistance systems for automated driving. Such systems enabling autonomous driving after 2030 will cause the next disruption of employment in the mobility and logistics service industries.
