The Arcadis Global Electric Vehicle Catalyst Index 2021
The Arcadis Global Electric Vehicle Catalyst Index 2021 starts off with the conclusion that the global transition from internal combustion engines (ICE) to low-emission vehicles is happening at a fast rate. By 2040, EV’s will constitute over half of all car sales, effectively shaping the future of travel.
The Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Technology Collaboration Programme (HEV TCP), part of the International Energy Agency’s Energy Technology Network, is an international collaboration of 18 countries exploring cutting-edge questions in hybrid and electric vehicles. Their 2021 Annual report opens on a positive note, stating the EV market outperformed that of conventional vehicles in 2020, and continues to grow fast.
In decarbonising the transport sector, we need not only look at electric mobility, but also at transport policy. This is one of the main findings in the discussion paper ‘Cleaner Vehicles and Charging Infrastructure’, published by the World Bank Group. Without a sustainable transport policy, the e-mobility revolution will only lead to ‘cleaner congestion’.
Update on electric vehicle uptake in European cities
Working Paper 2021-37, published by the International Council on Clean Transportation, provides an update on electric vehicle uptake in 2020 in 50 metropolitan regions with the greatest EV registrations volume and shares in Europe. It sheds light on key policies enabling the transition in the most successful local markets when it comes to the adoption of electric mobility.
The eReadiness 2021 Survey Report is the result of a study that provides up-to-date perspectives on the short-term development of the e-mobility business in 6 European markets: France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain and Switzerland. It also focusses on customer needs and, based on its findings, provides OEM’s with recommended actions. Here, we have listed some of the main findings...
The electric car market in Europe continues to grow fast. In Europe, electric car sales have gone up from 3.0% in 2019, to 10.5% in 2020. Not even a worldwide pandemic has been able to halt carmakers’ ambitions to comply with the new European car CO₂ standard, that has taken effect in 2020. However, the question is whether the...
