LG: market for electric cars will grow by ‘Tesla syndrome’




The market for electric vehicle components will grow substantially next year by something that LG ‘Tesla syndrome’ calls. The South Korean company has a division dedicated to making electric vehicle spare parts.

The demand for such components will firmly grow this year, LG said at the presentation of the quarterly figures . Said “Tesla syndrome accelerates that trend, the manufacturer thinks. Thereby presumably the manufacturer refers to the impact of the brand on the whole market for electric cars. Earlier this month, Tesla announced its Model 3, of which there are already hundreds of thousands in a few weeks in advance to buy his.

Despite LG suffered a small loss on the division of components in electric cars. This would mainly come through investments in new components, including a new infotainment system that must later this year.

LG delivered 13.5 million smartphones last month, down 12 percent from the same period last year.
