Germany’s Rheinmetall lands €250 million order for electric car parts


German defence contractor and automotive supplier Rheinmetall has won a major contract worth more than €250 million ($267 million) to produce electric car components.

Rheinmetall will supply an unnamed German premium manufacturer with switch contactors for a new electric car platform from 2025, the MDAX stock index-listed company said in Düsseldorf on Monday.

Contactors enable the safe switching on and off of electric vehicles with a high-voltage on-board network of 900 volts.

In late December, the company confirmed a major order worth €770 million from an industrial customer for refrigerant compressors in another order for non-military products.

Since the outbreak of Russia’s war on Ukraine and the German government’s announcement of a €100-billion boost to its armed forces, Rheinmetall’s defence division has been the focus of investor attention.

Rheinmetall significantly streamlined its automotive supply division in recent years, but also wants to build its business outside of defence in future fields such as electromobility.
