eMobility is the future of the automotive industry.
And that’s not just an inward-looking industry view – global sales figures tell the same story, too. Data from EV-Volumes showed sales of all plug-in EVs increasing by 63 percent worldwide, and topping two million units for the first time.
A total of 2.08-million plug-in passenger cars were sold, with 1.45-million being pure EVs.
We’re still talking about small volumes, which rather dilute the impressive percentage gains. Looking further at EV-Volumes’ figures, at the end of 2018, 5.3 million plug-in EVs were on the world’s roads, which means that a grand total of 0.5 percent of the world’s total light vehicle fleet is some form of plug-in.
However, S&P Global Platts Analytics forecasts that plug-in EVs, including plug-in hybrids, will account for nearly half of global auto sales by 2040. Therefore, there’s still much work to do for eMobility’s mainstream takeoff to become a reality.
But what are the key issues that OEMs and Tier suppliers are wrestling with as they battle the realities of delivering on a whole host of battery-powered promises? Our 2019 eMobility survey asked for your opinion, and this report – combined with expert analysis, will shed light on the real state of eMobility.
