We aim to provide the latest, most relevant stories in the industry, and this week was full of insights that suggest electrification is both possible, liveable, and will allow the planet to thrive.
Here are some of the highlights from this week, and we also welcome the latest issue of EV Magazine!
The discussion around charging and infrastructure is one of the most prominent in the electric vehicle (EV) transition.
ABB is often seen as an organisation at the forefront of charging technology, which is further emphasised by its actions in the FIA Formula E World Championship, as well as other major innovations in electrification technology.
It’s fair to say that there are a lot of new and exciting electric vehicles (EVs) out there, of which internal combustion vehicle (ICV) drivers may describe as ‘unusual’.
In the eyes of these drivers, the Citroen AMI would be one of them, but that’s exactly why we love it as a sustainable, electrified option for urban city living. However, it’s a challenge to classify such a vehicle in the current mobility landscape as it ticks all the right boxes of a car, but some would argue that it works as a micro-mobility solution.
While not new to the industry, Phoenix Motorcars is built on very modern principles as it aims to bring electric vehicles (EVs) to the commercial and public sectors.
As a leader in all-electric vehicle manufacturing, specifically medium-duty trucks, the company is built on electrification with plans to take this further and play its part in the decarbonisation of US transportation.
According to Zap-Map, at the end of October 2022 there were around 590,000 battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) in the UK alone. It was also noted at the end of 2021 that, over a 10-year period, the US figure grew from just 16,000 EVs to two million cars. It’s also safe to say that China is further cementing its position in the industry.
The questions we are facing as we near the end of 2022 is the future, in particular, finding out what the industry will look like in 2023. What will it cost to own and run an EV in comparison to internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles?
Unsurprisingly, Asia is the leading continent for electric vehicle battery manufacturing. In fact, it still retains the majority share in the industry, leaving just 8% of the battery market to the rest of the world.
As much work as the Americas and Europe; the Middle East; and Africa, put into battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), we can’t deny that Asia still dominates thanks to its high-performing manufacturing capabilities, particularly in China, Japan, and Korea.
