De ervaren automative-specialisten van CMS weten wat er speelt in de automobielbranche en geven u advies en hulp op maat.

De automobielbranche kent haar eigen zeer specifieke wet- en regelgeving zoals de Europese vrijstellingsverordening voor de automobielbranche (VO 1400/02). Bij het opstellen en opzeggen van dealer- en financieringscontracten, automotive-gerelateerde productaansprakelijkheid, het vestigen en uitwinnen van zekerheden is kennis van deze wetten en regels een vereiste.

In het geval van problematiek rond consumentenfinanciering (onder meer WCK en WFD) of het begeleiden van bedrijven in de automobielbranche bij doorstartscenario's en/of herstructurering is deskundige juridische bijstand van groot belang.

Importeurs van auto's en vrachtwagens, autodealerbedrijven, financieringsmaatschappijen (waaronder leasemaatschappijen) en toeleveranciers voor de automobielbranche kunnen allemaal met dit soort zaken te maken krijgen.

CMS kan u hierin bijstaan. Onze automotive-specialisten hebben veel ervaring op dit gebied, weten wat er speelt en geven u advies en hulp op maat.

Elec­tric ve­hi­cles and char­ging in­fra­struc­tu­re
560340htt­ps://me­dia.cms­legal.com/me­dia/em­bed?uni­que_key=923b2bd­cb10e5df3393a11a3ff0cdc48&width=720&height=405&au­to­play=fal­se&au­to­lights­off=fal­se&loop=fal­se&clean1al­waysez­no­de://501981The up­ta­ke of elec­tric ve­hi­cles (EVs) has soa­red in re­cent ye­ars (al­beit from a very low ba­se), with ju­ris­dic­ti­ons such as Nor­way and The Ne­ther­lands cur­rent­ly lea­ding the pack. Howe­ver, in or­der for a coun­try to be­co­me a glo­bal EV lea­der, it is vi­tal to con­si­der all as­pects of EV adop­ti­on, from re­gu­la­to­ry fra­me­works which en­dor­se the rol­lout of EVs, to the speed and avai­la­bi­li­ty of char­ging in­fra­struc­tu­re (in­clu­ding in­ter­o­pe­ra­bi­li­ty), as well as in­cen­ti­ves for com­pa­nies and con­su­mers.The growth in EVs pre­sents a num­ber of op­por­tu­ni­ties for in­ves­tors, the most sig­ni­fi­cant of which are pro­jec­ted to be in pu­blic EV char­ging net­works and cor­po­ra­te fleets. The­re are a num­ber of pa­th­ways ope­ning up for the de­ploy­ment of EV in­fra­struc­tu­re. At pre­sent, it is unclear as to which bu­si­ness mo­del(s) will suc­ceed, with di­ver­se ran­ge cur­rent­ly being pur­sued by char­ging in­fra­struc­tu­re pro­vi­ders and in­ves­tors, each of which has dif­fe­rent ap­pro­a­ches in terms of re­ve­nue streams, de­mand risk, lo­ca­ti­on and speed of char­ging.The fu­tu­re of char­ging in­fra­struc­tu­re is just around the cor­ner, with ori­gi­nal equip­ment ma­nu­fac­tu­rers (OEMs) such as BMW and Vaux­hall al­rea­dy launching EV mo­dels that can be po­we­red wi­re­les­sly.In ad­di­ti­on, the use of hy­dro­gen fu­el cell ve­hi­cles may pro­vi­de an al­ter­na­ti­ve, on­ce the tech­no­lo­gy is mo­re com­mer­ci­al­ly ma­tu­re, with de­vel­op­ments in hy­dro­gen re­fu­el­ling tech­no­lo­gy un­der­way in Ca­li­for­nia, Chi­na, Ger­ma­ny, Ja­pan and South Ko­rea.This re­port is one of four sup­ple­ments, ex­pan­ding on the fin­dings of our 2018 Con­nec­ted Fu­tu­re re­port and our 2017 CMS In­fra­struc­tu­re In­dex. The 2019 In­fra­struc­tu­re In­dex will be avai­la­ble at the end of 2019.
