Brazil and Germany launch technology mapping for light electric vehicles in the country

Strategic plan

Study provides scenarios for technologies within the 15 year period

To evaluate the future of the development of light electric vehicles in Brazil, the Brazilian and German governments launched this Thursday (4/7) the report "Technological roadmap for light electric vehicles in Brazil". 

The study, carried out under the Promob-e, a technical cooperation project executed by the Ministry of Economy in partnership with the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development through the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, can be accessed  at this address .

The roadmap is a strategic plan that outlines the steps required for an organization to achieve goals in a given time frame. In order to identify the possibilities of Brazilian participation in the production of components of light electric vehicles, the report presents the results of a technological mapping that covers configurations of electric vehicles to battery, electric plugin, hybrid plug-in and hydrogen cell, considering horizons of future of five, ten and fifteen years, identifying barriers and opportunities for technology. 

The document was prepared by the team of the Electrical Vehicle Studies Laboratory of the Department of Science and Technology Policy of the Institute of Geosciences of the State University of Campinas, based on several interactions with important actors involved with the chain of vehicles and components in Brazil . 


The Promob-e cooperation project aims to assist the Brazilian government in the formulation of public policies that encourage the adoption of more efficient propulsion systems. The partnership began in January 2017 and is expected to last until 2020. 

In four years, the German government must spend 5 million euros to hold seminars, workshops, training and technical visits to help map the current Brazilian scenario in relation to electromobility, providing decision makers in the Brazilian government with technical information and mass critical to the formulation of public policies related to the theme. In the end, the expectation is that it is possible to identify actors, bottlenecks and opportunities inserted in this sector. 

In Brazil, the transportation sector is responsible for more than half of the consumption of fossil fuels and for almost half of the emissions of greenhouse gases of the energy sector. According to the Energy Research Company (EPE), the passenger car fleet is expected to triple by 2050, reaching about 11.8 million (9%) of purely electric vehicles. 

The managing committee of Promob-e is composed by National Electric Energy Agency, National Economic and Social Development Bank and by the Ministries of Cities; of Science, Technology, Innovations; and Communications and Mines and Energy.
