Mr Zipse was appointed President of the association during a meeting of its Board of Directors, composed of the CEOs of Europe's car, van, truck and bus manufacturers. As of January, he will take over the ACEA presidency from Michael Manley, CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

"2021 will be a pivotal year for the EU auto industry in the transition to sustainable mobility," said Mr Zipse. "This aspiration comes against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has hit the global economy and our sector hard. However, we are convinced of the need to join forces across industries and with political leaders to achieve the greatest impact in fighting climate change. All parties involved need to contribute to this overarching goal of reducing emissions. An urgent task is the EU-wide rollout of charging infrastructure to ensure everyday usability of electric vehicles for customers in all member states. In addition, we need to utilise the latest innovations across the full range of drivetrain technologies to meet all customers' demands."

The ACEA President is elected for a year-long term, which can be renewed once.

ACEA represents the 16 major Europe-based car, van, truck and bus manufacturers: BMW Group, CNH Industrial, DAF Trucks, Daimler, Ferrari, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford of Europe, Honda Motor Europe, Hyundai Motor Europe, Jaguar Land Rover, PSA Group, Renault Group, Toyota Motor Europe, Volkswagen Group, Volvo Cars, and Volvo Group.
