We make life easier, safer and greener

The world’s swelling population, more and more megacities and the rising demand for energy is prompting us to rethink many aspects of our modern lifestyle.

Semiconductor and system solutions from Infineon contribute to a better future – making our world easier, safer and greener. These tiny, barely visible electronic components have become an indispensable part of our daily lives. They help to feed regenerative energy into power grids with almost zero losses, tame power-hungry computers, safeguard the data flying through cyberspace and make our cars more energy-efficient.

Drivers choose 'green' power for their EVs

Drivers choose 'green' power for their EVs
Two-thirds of all German motorists can imagine buying an electric car. This is the result of a representative survey conducted by Statista on behalf of Infineon Technologies. Younger drivers are more open to e-cars, and are now boosting e-mobility. In the age group between 18 and 39 years, the approval rate for e-mobility is almost 80%. In the age group of the 60 to 69-year-old, however, only around 50% approve.
