The future of mobility begins in North Rhine-Westphalia. It is here where investors find the best conditions for successful investments in smart mobility: an important industrial region with a strong supply industry, innovative research institutes and targeted support from the state government.
As Germany’s economically strongest federal state, NRW is one of the most important automotive locations in Europe. Renowned automobile manufacturers have production plants here (Daimler, Ford), control their European business from NRW (Ford, Nissan, Mazda) or have their German headquarters in the federal state (Toyota, Volvo, PSA Group).
North Rhine-Westphalia is the center of the German automotive supply industry. Every third German automotive supplier is based in NRW, from internationally active large companies (Covestro, Hella, Kiekert, Kirchhoff, Mobileye, Thyssenkrupp Automotive Systems) to highly specialized, medium-sized world market leaders.
