The switch from combustion engines to batteries poses at least as many problems of adaptation for all the players who provide motorists with the services they need to acquire and maintain their vehicles in good working order as it does for automakers and equipment manufacturers. This work, which is essentially forward-looking, focuses on these problems and the way they affect the business models of all the players and ultimately the downstream business ecosystem. It shows that the changes underway will probably not revolutionise the ecosystem, but will enable the very diverse players who coexist in it to reposition themselves in relation to each other.
