Over the next four years, a total of €800 million ($912 million) will be invested in Saarbrücken, the lead location of ZF’s transmission technology. With this investment, the location will be made fit for the transition from conventional to electric car drives.

“The share of hybrid drives in production will increase tenfold over the next few years, from five to 50%,” said Wolf-Henning Scheider, CEO of ZF Friedrichshafen AG. ZF is investing more than €3 billion ($3.42 billion) worldwide in new products and its production network for transmission technology.

For the Saarbrücken plant, the ongoing electrification of the powertrain is both an opportunity and a challenge. “We see the increasing market penetration of advanced hybrid drives as an opportunity, which in our view is much more than just a bridge technology,” said Scheider in Saarbrücken, Germany. “With longer ranges between 80 and 100 kilometres, they can complete the majority of all journeys electrically and thus help e-mobility to achieve a breakthrough more quickly.”
