ACHIEVING THE WORLD’S FIRST TRULY MAINSTREAM ELECTRIC VEHICLE
The mainstream adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is an essential milestone on the road to electrification, but when can we expect to pass it? In 2020, our Accelerating the EVolution report examined the barriers to mainstream EV adoption and identified three key tipping points that first need to be achieved:
1. A price point of $36,000
2. A charging time of under 31 minutes
3. A range of 469km
Our Driving the EVolution report includes insights from industry experts into what is needed to meet these criteria and enable the mainstream adoption of EVs.
The experts from Castrol, charging infrastructure provider bp pulse and the Jaguar Racing Formula E team identified co- engineering, collaboration and consumer education as three key areas of focus.
