BERLIN / STUTTGART (dpa-AFX) – The future Bosch boss Stefan Hartung expects a shortage of semiconductors for a long time to come. “You have to be clear: the chip crisis is not over,” Hartung told Focus magazine. “All of us as German industry are massively dependent on the delivery bottlenecks being resolved. Every missing chip can mean that a steering system and, as a result, an entire car cannot be built. That will be a lot for us throughout 2022 Cost strength. ” At the turn of the year Hartung takes over the management of the world’s largest automotive supplier from Volkmar Denner.

The chip crisis can also threaten projects that are being promoted by the traffic light coalition, such as the goal of around 15 million fully electric cars on German roads by 2030. That cannot be achieved “if the global problems in the supply chains are not resolved soon. And that does not only apply to the auto industry,” said Hartung, who was already skeptical: Whether the goal can be achieved remains to be seen . “This not only requires the raw materials, the batteries and the demand, which in turn depends heavily on the charging infrastructure.” It is not just about car production, but about social change and technological restructuring at all levels. The electricity that the vehicles then use should also be green./ols/DP/nas
