The electric car and the hydrogen car, the two technologies with, predictably, the future in terms of mobility, mean for Aragon a competitive advantage to position itself as a benchmark in the market.
The Figueruelas plant will be the first European factory of Opel to produce an electric car, the Corsa, in 2019. Its implementation will provide a ‘know how’ very important to both Opel and the auxiliaries, which are already preparing for the components that this model will need. The subsidies that the regional government will provide in this area will also help, reports El Periódico de Aragón.
For its part, the CIRCE Foundation, located on the Río Ebro campus, is working on wireless recharges, while the Hydrogen Foundation, the research center promoted by the DGA in 2003 with the support of the Aragonese industry, is already playing a key role in the development of this technology.
