This paper discusses electromobility transition process governance. Mobility transition is challenging process that might favor some actors over others. Any chosen path by a region or country must rely upon on choices regarding resources provisioning, technology and product development and user behavior reshaping. Governance plays a role to articulate actions between different players and stakeholders, local and national agendas and long and short term objectives. Germany’s course of action towards mobility started relatively late compared to other countries which are also among major world car producers. Nevertheless, it differentiates itself on how it has developed key instruments to develop consensus in different steps of this transition, in order to act, react and produce expected results, based on a cooperative consensus style of policy making. This analysis prompts some issues to be further investigated on what could be missing in Brazilian electromobility transition process.
