Take the lead and move the whole body.
When the automobile industry is fiercely turbulent under the wave of “new four modernizations”, the traditional manufacturers and the new forces of the new car are anxious, and the suppliers are inevitably under pressure as the upstream of the industrial chain. Corresponding to the turning point of the automotive industry, the history of the parts industry is also being rewritten.
Even the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show with the theme of “Creating a Better Life” has also set up the “Future Mobility” exhibition area for the first time. The world's top component suppliers Bosch, Valeo, China, Visteon, etc. all participated in the exhibition. The servant is eye-catching.
In the new round of technological changes, the main engine factory and global parts, who can become synonymous with "future travel"?
Mainland change
With the promotion of policies, the world's major automakers are also investing in the wave of electrification. Take the Big Three of the German automobile industry as an example. Volkswagen Group, Daimler Group and BMW Group have reached a consensus to comprehensively promote the electrification strategy. Volkswagen even publicly stated that it will stop developing fuel vehicles in 2026. Under the wave of electrification, traditional suppliers have transformed, and the mainland group is particularly radical.
“Autopilot, electric car and intelligent network: we are the creators of a safer, cleaner and smarter travel ecosystem. Continental is synonymous with 'future travel'. We offer other companies in the market that are still testing. Technology,Four out of every five vehicles in the world are safer, more efficient and more comfortable with our solutions, components and systems.” Dr. Degen Hart, Chairman of Continental's Board of Directors, emphasized the company's presence in the automotive market during the Shanghai Auto Show. The dominant position occupied.
The Continental Group predicts that from now until 2025, the industry will develop the last generation of internal combustion engines; from 2025 to 2030, the last generation of internal combustion engines will be produced; after 2040, internal combustion engine technology will gradually withdraw from the historical stage; from 2040 to 2050, ideally, the city And the road no longer has CO2 pollution.
At the global conference in March this year, Continental said it would continue to invest heavily in future travel ecosystems and said the company can still afford mergers and acquisitions of up to 5 billion euros.
In 2018, Continental continued to invest heavily in future travel. In the fiscal year of FY18, the company invested more than 6.3 billion euros, mainly for research and development, expansion of production facilities and expansion of production capacity.
During the Shanghai Auto Show, Tang En, president and CEO of the German component giant Continental China, said that the mainland is confident to create a safer, smarter and more comfortable future travel ecosystem to create a lifestyle that meets the needs of Chinese consumers.
This means that as a traditional auto parts supplier with a history of 100 years, the mainland has found its own direction in the wave of “new four”. Continental announced that in 2019, its powertrain division will be split into separate entities and will be listed in the middle of the year.
New business independent transformation
In fact, the layout of “future travel” has long been a strategic commanding point for component giants.
On July 18 last year, Continental announced the largest organizational restructuring in its history, dividing the company into three major segments: powertrain, automotive and rubber, and formed three independent holding companies.
Among them, the powertrain business, including electric drive systems, internal combustion engine related products, and battery projects will be included in the powertrain new company. It is planned to be listed in the IPO in mid-2019. The cash generated in the listing will be used to invest in electric vehicles, autopilot, etc. Emerging areas. At the same time, the mainland changed the chassis and security and interior sectors into autonomous driving and car networking services, belonging to the automotive sector, and set up a central R&D institution. The restructuring plan will be completed in 2020. In addition, the two businesses of the horse brand tires and ContiTech remain in the status quo and belong to the rubber sector. However, the Continental Group said that it will not rule out the splitting of tires and ContiTech in the future.
The main purpose of the split is to seek development in emerging areas. The more cutting-edge transformation business will have higher decision-making power from independent teams, so the split department will benefit from independent operations. The retained rubber segment business will continue to input stable cash flow to the Group.
It is for this reason that in February 2018, Bosch, the world's number one component manufacturer, established the Intelligent Networking Division to promote the company's transformation to intelligent transportation service providers.
As early as September 2017, American auto parts manufacturer Delphi split its powertrain system division into two independent companies, named "Delphi Technology" and "Anbofu" respectively. The former continued to focus on the powertrain system. R&D, the latter focuses on autonomous driving technology.
Delphi said that the company's positioning will be more precise after the split: with its technical advantages and excellent execution capabilities, it will provide advanced propulsion systems for automobiles to help customers meet increasingly stringent regulatory requirements, while "we will release more The development potential supports the development of automotive electrification. It can be seen that Delphi’s key business will be converted to electric vehicles and autonomous driving in the future.
Even horizontal and vertical: fully cut into the mainframe business
In the process of splitting, mergers and acquisitions, and the new All-in strategy, the parts giants will often adopt cooperative OEMs to avoid the risks brought by the new areas of layout. More importantly, the parts suppliers will be comprehensive. Cut into the mainframe business and achieve higher profits and voice.
On January 15th, 2019, Magna and Beiqi New Energy joint venture "Magna Weilan" was officially unveiled. This is another substantive action after the cooperation between the two sides of the new high-end brand ARCFOX. Just before the Spring Festival, Magna released the next stage of financial forecast. In 2019-2021, the estimated free cash flow will increase to 6.5 billion US dollars, exceeding the level of 6 billion to 2020 billion, which means McGonagall Na is ready for the transformation of new energy sources and is making every effort to launch an impact on China's new energy market.
There is no such thing. In January of this year, Mercedes-Benz announced a partnership with NVIDIA to develop the next-generation Mercedes-Benz. The NVIDIA and Mercedes-Benz will cooperate on the entire car. NVIDIA DRIVE will become the core of Mercedes-Benz's new car architecture, providing high-performance, energy-efficient computing capabilities for its vehicles and processing artificial intelligence (AI) software for advanced mobile travel technology.

Even Bosch, which has a very extensive layout, is also working with Daimler on the autonomous driving level. It plans to use San José, the third largest city in California, as a highly self-driving (SAE 4/5) on demand in the second half of 2019. Pilot city for ride service. It is worth mentioning that the US technology company Nvidia is also involved, playing the role of the artificial intelligence platform supplier.
The Boston Consulting Group pointed out that in the next 15 years, auto parts and parts manufacturers of pure electric vehicles will have greater influence and occupy a favorable market position in the future growth field.
In any case, the market position of traditional OEMs will face a profoundly changing competitive landscape, and the auto parts will continue to pay attention to the fate of the new round of transformation and shuffling.
