Taiwan is calling! Applications now open for the 2035 E-Mobility Global Demo Day

Taiwan is globally renowned for its place in the high-tech and automotive parts manufacturing industries. It’s a nation that is pioneering the tech of tomorrow that will make a big impact.

Reflecting this, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA)—Taiwan’s foremost non-profit trade-promoting organization launched 2035  E-Mobility Taiwan last year as a new trade show for the EV and self-driving car ecosystem.

The show’s second edition is set to take place on April 12-15, 2023, and, is a great opportunity for industry players to showcase and discover new ideas and solutions for future mobility.

What’s in store

The future of mobility, of how we move from A to B is a conversation that has governments, businesses, and people talking all over the world. Societies want to be more mobile and better connected, and at the same time, we want to reduce carbon footprints and lower the environmental impact of the movement.

Many countries around the world have also announced plans to ban the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles shortly, and already many cities have strict rules in place about when and where certain vehicles can go to protect air quality and reduce pollution.

These factors have created something of an e-mobility boom, and it’s calling for fresh innovation. The main trends we are seeing are the rise of electric vehicles and self-driving cars – and a lot of it is beginning in Taiwan.

With a strong foundation and legacy in the semiconductor and ICT industries, advanced manufacturing, and software programming, Taiwan has demonstrated its place as a major supplier in the global high-tech and automotive industries. For example, Taiwan-based companies—including TSMC, TECO, FUKUDA, BizLink, EOI Group, Asia Optical, and CoreMax—are some of the largest providers of Tesla’s components. Meanwhile, Taiwanese manufacturers such as Delta, Pegatron, and Quanta have long been the trusted suppliers for top carmakers in countries like the U.S., Europe, and Japan.

It is with this background that TAITRA launches 2035 E-Mobility Taiwan for the EV and self-driving car ecosystem. Along with the trade show, TAITRA and Epoch Foundation—the founder of Garage+, which is known as Asia’s largest zero-equity incubator—co-organize the E-Mobility Global Demo Day, a start-up pitch event on the hunt for new ideas and solutions for the mobility sector.
