The production of vehicles is strictly related to the economy of individual countries and the global economy in general.
The global economy in current circumstances is being facing many changes. Regardless of the several dynamically unstable factors that caused those changes, on a larger scale, a coherent picture of global changes is being drawn.
Until a few decades ago, Europe still possessed the primacy in technology, industry and new technology development. Today the situation looks completely different.
In Europe, there is visible push that forces to resign from an individual transportation as such in favor of public transport. Although an individual transportation devices for over a hundred years were a sign of freedom and a real progress that shaped European cities, roads and entire infrastructure.
This contradicts with the economic progress of the Europeans and with individual expectations. Such an approach will also deprive people of their freedom of movement and choice of places of remembrance and places of work. It will (or hopefully would not) also radically change the style and pace of life in many provinces. Let’s hope that the EU’s odd strategy will not succeed in bringing down what was achieved for the last hundred years.
In the face of the innovation crisis, Europe has been moving towards post-industrialism for several decades now. This, however, is beyond the scope of this article. So far, expressed by EU approach is one of the factor that causes decrease in vehicle production.
