  • Semi-conductors aren’t the only shortage in Germany but also copper aluminum cobalt, lithium nickel which is need to manufacture an electric vehicle
  • Germany’s economy relies heavily on the export of automobiles
  • Things that happen across the world in the automotive industry can impact the automotive industry in the United States

Justin Honore asked Carl Anthony Editor of AutoVision News about the effects of this and what it could mean for the American auto industry.
