Chairman, Bosch Automotive
Chosen because: Under Bohr, 54, Bosch Automotive was an early promoter of vehicle electrification, investing in batteries, electric motors and an array of EV systems. Through SB LiMotive, a joint-venture with Samsung, Bosch is a leader in lithium ion battery development. He sees a slow ramp-up of electric-vehicle production, returning Bosch a profit on its investment in close to 10 years.
Quote: "Our view is that the auto industry is going to be more and more electric. We decided that we needed to be on the bandwagon early."
