Your next electrified car will be powered by Amazon and Baidu

The e-Mobility industry attracts Technology companies like Baidu, Tencentand Amazon as strategic (lead) investors. A Quarterly Global e-Mobility M&A report unveils 29 transactions with a total value of over $ US 2 billion dollars. It seems that the electric mobility and charging infrastructure industry is the new everlasting ‘bull market’.

The Electric Vehicles Industry is really taking-off since last year. By 2030 Bloomberg New Energy Finance (NEF) estimated a total of 130 million EVs will hit our global road. A huge challenge for mankind to make this happen. At the same time a huge opportunity for established Technology and Energy companies to support the emerging e-Mobility industry with their inexhaustible knowledge and money sources. Companies like Tencentand BP continued their cleantechbuy-and-build journey in Q1 since they all contributed 2 transactions to their honourslist.

Europe registered most transactions for Q1 2019

Most popular EV industries to invest in are vehicle OEM’s (14x), battery OEM’s, charge point operators and charge point service providers. There were (only) 2 transactions registered concerning charge point manufactures. Europe is the place to be for EV investors with 11 transactions. However American EV start-ups are certainly second with a transaction volume of 11. China is holding its breath in the first quarter of 2019 with a total of 4. The report is freely accessible.

(Sustainable) bull market appeared at the horizon
