I EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW II TRADE TALK IEURONICS:IT'S THE HUMANTOUCH THATCOUNTSMichael Lohscheller with the new Opel Mokka-eTowards an electric futureOpel CEO Michael Lohscheller addressesimpending challenges at SHIFT MobilitySHIFT Mobility this year is a forum for global insights and ideas on the futureof mobility, both on site and via streaming and virtual events. Topping the listof speakers, Opel CEO, Michael Lohscheller, speaks about future challenges,such as global warming, shares insights into the exciting journey that hiscompany has started and also talks about how they have successfully madea comeback as part of Groupe PSA. We asked him to tell us more.We are in the middle of the greatesttransformation in the history of our industry.And the Covid 19 pandemic is even increasingthe pressure. I am convinced that agility andmassive change is absolutely crucial for everycompany in the automotive industry to remainsuccessful.What will be the most disruptive technologyin the coming years?For sure, electrification, as climate change isthe biggest challenge our generation faces.That’s why at the moment most of our energyis devoted to this field. We are turning Opelinto an electric brand, with all the models inour portfolio being available in an electrifiedversion by 2024. With this approach, we willmeet the stringent CO2 targets set by theEuropean Union and we will also not promoterenegotiations of these targets because of thepandemic. There’s no question that meetingthese targets and reducing CO2 emissionsthat significantly requires massive effortsand huge investments. However, for us this isalso an ethical commitment and we take ourresponsibility to contribute to the fight againstglobal warming very seriously.Of course, we are also dealing with othermegatrends such as connectivity, autonomousdriving and sharing economy. They will alsochange consumer behaviour and thus ourindustry significantly, and we are developinginnovative solutions for our customers.The Shift conference is relatively new. Howimportant is it for IFA to have developed aconference concept like this, and why?You can only be successful if you constantlyquestion yourself and adapt to newrequirements and changing realities. That’strue for every company regardless if theyproduce cars or organise conferences.Opel has constantly re-invented itself: fromproducing sewing machines to becoming oneof the leading carmakers in Europe. So, I canonly congratulate and encourage you on thedecision to develop such a modern, innovativeand interactive conference format. Thechallenges for our industry and society at largeare huge. Platforms that bring leading expertstogether to discuss exactly these questionsare extremely valuable and I am very excitedto be a part of the Shift conference this yearSHIFT MOBILITY meets IFA NEXTImpulse Talk: Disruption is in our GenesToday, 10:00-10:20 amSHIFT Mobility ConventionHans CarpelsPresident, EuronicsFor Euronics, like all others, thesehave been challenging times.
