Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, it is widely accepted by all that the traditional automotive industry has entered a phase of disruptive changes: The disruption of markets and consumers, the disruption of technologies and of business models. In this context, prospective studies offer possible scenarios for the development of a new industry called the electromobility 2.0 industry. Their findings shed light on the myriad issues that have to be taken into account, and in particular whether the variety of stakeholders involved have the ability to create the necessary radical innovations. Following a systems approach in order to better grasp the complexity of the situation, this paper aims to contribute conceptual considerations to these studies. It explores how appropriate decentralised and open industrial ecosystems organisational structures are for creating the conditions which would foster the emergence of radical innovations for the electromobility 2.0 industry. It also highlights the importance of having adequate inter-organisational governance modes to foster the inter-implication of the numerous complementary stakeholders in this process.
