The Future of Plastic & Rubber Components for Autonomous and Electric Vehicles to 2023
  • An electrically driven vehicle can be driven by a battery, or by a hybrid system consisting of a battery charged by an internal combustion engine.
  • An autonomous vehicle can be powered by an internal combustion engine as well as the two previous systems.
  • Other systems such as fuel cells are also under development.
  • Whatever these differences, they will have much in common, such as chassis and body constructions, lighting systems, etc.
  • The consumption of plastics and rubber components is expected to increase considerably as a result of this growth.
