Integrated services for automotive manufacturers, suppliers and retailers
Today’s automotive industry is affected by many trends. Governments are tempering the need for revenue with increased competition for labor and capital. Tax authorities are adapting their enforcement strategies, focus and policies in response to the changing dynamics of business. Companies are balancing competing priorities, ensuring they maintain compliance while adding value.
Through EY’s Global Automotive Center, we can assist you with these critical issues. Our 7,000 automotive-focused professionals collaborate and share knowledge around the world, to provide consistent, high-quality service to our automotive clients.
Key issues in today's automotive environment include:
- Advanced mobility
The growing interest in alternative powertrain technologies, especially the increased electrification of vehicles, is affecting the entire automotive industry value chain and creating new mobility trends involving several new, non-automotive stakeholders.
Existing vehicle manufacturers (VMs) are adding alternatively powered vehicles to their product line-ups, such as plug-in hybrids and pure electric vehicles, while new market entrants are using transformation of mobility drivers as their door into the automotive industry.
Our Advanced Mobility Group is poised to help automotive companies navigate this transformation, including assistance with investment decision support, business process change, strategy and increased collaboration.
Increasing your understanding of new opportunities is our goal. In addition to traditional automotive companies, we also work with:
- Cities looking for a sustainable EV infrastructure strategy
- Policy-makers designing EV industry support mechanisms to jump-start the market
- Utilities looking for new revenue streams and greater client engagement
- Companies that need business valuations for EV-related assets
- Fleet managers evaluating new powertrain architecture
- Finance executives assessing the tax and finance implications of leasing EVs
- Manufacturers looking for government incentives for R&D and other projects
- Entrepreneurs trying to craft a winning business model
- VMs fine-tuning their downstream strategy
