  3. 3. When the automobile was introduced in late 1800’s, it was notreadily apparent which engine technology would prevail Steam vs. Electric vs. Internal Combustion Steam Car Electric Car Gasoline-Powered Car (Nicolas Joseph Cugnot 1769) (Robert Anderson, 1839) (Carl Benz, 1886) At the end of 19th century, electrics outsold all other types of cars 2
  4. 4. ICE prevailed over other technologies dues to its virtues speed,power, and range – courtesy of petroleum’s high energy density ’ Competitive Advantages By Powertrain Energy Density Of Petroleum Vs. Other Fuels Energy Available (Mega Criteria Electric Steam ICE Joules per Liter) 40 Clean, free of smoke/odor X X 36.0 Quiet X 35 32.0 Reliable, durable X 30 Simple, easy to maintain X X Easy to drive and control X 25 Free of vibration X 5x 20 Instant starting X 15 Speed X Acceleration 10 7.0 Power X 5.0 5 Range, distance X X 1.0 Infrastructure X X 0 Li-Ion Hydrogen Natural Gas Gasoline Diesel Battery (10K psi) (3K psi) Is the future going to be different?Note: ICE = Internal Combustion EngineSource: ANL, DOE, Sion, NRC, Booz & Company analysisBooz & Company 3

  13. 13. The road to the new automotive world order will be challengingand will require significant transitions from today’s status quo Key Challenges How can OEMs build up the new structures and capabilities required to develop alternative Capabilities powertrain vehicles? Who should the OEMs partner with in order to build and improve these capabilities? Where and how do OEMs find the suppliers for new technologies? How will these relationships be different from relationships with current suppliers? Suppliers How can the supply chain be aligned to meet the needs of the new supplier landscape? How will infrastructure supply (e.g. electric charging stations) be built up? What changes are in store for the current manufacturing structure and how can they be Change managed most effectively? Engineering? Sales & Marketing? ManagementBooz & Company 12
  14. 14. Solutions for the “mobility revolution” require a new “eco- ”system” of collaborative partnerships ” 3 Dimensions of the New Eco-system Regulatory Innovation Frontier (Government) New policies (including subsidy policy) to support the commercialization of green transportation technologies Technical Innovation Frontier Business Innovation Frontier (Auto Industry) (Cross Industry/Value Chain) Partnerships among key Partnerships between other players to deliver deep, industries and auto scalable solutions for future makers/suppliers to develop green transportation new business model for future green carsBooz & Company 13
