Transition to Electric Vehicles (EVs)
What Do We Need To Know
Next year, the year of 2020, is when the EV will truly become main stream. Every major automotive brand is changing their product mix and is ready to launch their own versions of Electric Vehicles. TESLA is not alone anymore: From VW Group, BMW, Daimler and all major OEMs across continent Europe to Ford and to GM in the United States, next year we will see a surge in EVs. By 2025 more than 350 new EV models would have made their debut. This surge has been brought on not only by demand from customers, but also by policy changes from global governments to address the climate change crisis. Although we will start seeing more and more people buying EVs, will the transition be smooth?
The Proper Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles
One of the main bottlenecks of creating a positive EV market, is that customers may still have the perception that the EVs do not give enough driving range. And this relates to another concern if there will be enough charging stations. And how should these charging stations be structured when it comes to high concentrated high-rise living compared to suburban house dwelling environments.
There will most likely be three categories for charging: Home, Work and Public. In EU countries, home chargers would be more common compared to Asian countries such as China, where public charging would be more relevant considering high concentration of residents and fewer single-family homes.
Vehicle to Grid Energy
There is No Doubt
We are in an exciting time as the whole automotive industry is at the pinnacle of the shift and in 20 years, we will see the automotive industry transformed for a majority Electric Vehicle market.
