In 2018, only two percent of auto sales in the US were full electric or electric hybrid models, with Tesla making up more than a third of the sales.
However, despite low demand, automakers continue to pursue a policy of development of electric vehicles – largely due to rising global regulatory requirements.
There have been two main roadblocks that have inhibited the uptake of EVs among the public: the issues of poor range and the lack of a charging infrastructure. With a number of new EV models being debuted by top automakers, and with more than 350 new models slated for introduction by 2025, range may become less of an issue.
Some of these models are expected to have a range in excess of 200 miles but if consumers adopt EVs at the predicted purchase rates in the coming decade, charging infrastructure could become the critical obstacle to market penetration. Investment in charging networks is therefore essential for the uptake of EVs, despite the low numbers of such vehicles on the road today.
In this eBook, we explore the issues surrounding investment in charging infrastructure, in order to remove it as a potential barrier for widespread consumer adoption of EVs.
