Poland plans homegrown e-car brand
Automotive engineering has already played a major role in Poland's economy - but almost exclusively as a manufacturing service provider for foreign OEMs. Now the country wants to set up development and production under its own management. The first production cars of the new electric vehicle brand "Izera" are scheduled to roll off the assembly line in 2023.

Prices for the cars are not mentioned on the Electromobility Poland’s website. As technology partner, EMP has brought on board EDAG Engineering, a company founded in Germany and now managed from Switzerland. At the IAA motor show last September, the engineering services provider presented a scalable floor assembly for electric vehicles, which market observers believe could well be the basis for the Polish e-mobiles.

“Electromobility is no longer about some vague daydreams but a true technological and business reality that we need to start embracing in an efficient manner,” says Małgorzata Królak, Director of EMP’s Project. “The automotive sector is the second largest industry of Poland, with over 200 thousand jobs in production and 270 thousand jobs in trade and industry-related services. This means that the automotive sector accounts for approx. 7 % of the Polish GDP. Also, we are the largest European state that has no car make of its own. … With the Izera brand, we aspire to evoke changes to drive the innovation in the whole industry so that we can prepare ourselves for the challenges of the evolving market reality. This is an opportunity to create Polish specialization based on our own solutions which can compete with other players on the global market.”

Electromobility Poland is a joint venture of four Polish energy companies – PGE, Energa SA, Enea and Tauron.
