In the global wealthy city electric vehicles will account for 2/3
According to Reuters, a recent report by McKinsey & Bloomberg Energy Finance will show that electric vehicles will account for about two-thirds of the world’s wealthy cities, such as London and Singapore, in 2030. The main growth drivers come from more stringent emissions monitoring, declining technical costs and consumer interest.
Electricity vehicles (EV) are now becoming more popular. Their presence helps to reduce the greenhouse hazards caused by exhaust emissions and is therefore supported by governments’ policy subsidies and tax savings.
The cost of technology is also falling at the same time. In 2015, the price of lithium-ion battery packs fell by about 65% from 2010, from $ 1,000 / kWh to $ 350 / kWh. According to the report, the price in the next decade will further fall to $100 / kWh level.
In densely populated, high-income cities such as London and Singapore, electric motor vehicles will account for 60% of the city’s major transport vehicles in 2030, which is the government’s increased emissions standards, increased consumer interest, Due to.
However, the increase in electric motor vehicles is not entirely good for the automotive industry.
The automotive industry is likely to face a future that is essentially different from the past, and it may be necessary to consider a transition from past models of all vehicles to a profit model that provides a range of transportation services.
Gas station operators should also consider future earnings patterns, including how to use existing assets from the charging service, retail market and rental market profits.
“The electricity motor vehicle market is likely to break out at any time because the transfer of social preferences can not be modeled,” said Spencer Dale, chief economist at BP.
