"Showcase Bavaria-Saxony ELECTRIC MOBILITY CONNECTS"
Since 2013, BMW has been mass producing the i3, the first vehicle which was specifically designed for electromobility, in Leipzig. The Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid rolls off the assembly line in Leipzig as well. A well positioned supply branch in the automotive sector and in the electrical industry manufactures, for example, powertrain components, batteries as well as power electronics. Already since 2009, the Free State has been participating as a model region in Germany’s federal program »Electric Mobility in Model Regions.« And since 2012, Saxony has also been promoting numerous demonstration and pilot projects within the scope of the federal program »Showcase Bavaria-Saxony ELECTRIC MOBILITY CONNECTS« which are tried and tested in a practical approach and which can be experienced at a broader scale.
The Saxony State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labor, and Transport (SMWA) has entrusted the Energy Agency Saxony – SAENA GmbH with the establishment and operation of a competence center for electromobility.Additional Links
