The development of a robust domestic manufacturing base and supply chain

The rising use of energy storage systems (ESSs) on the electrical grid and electric vehicles (EVs) is expected to raise demand for lithium batteries, which is expected to expand quickly. By 2030, it is anticipated that both global and domestic demand will have increased by more than 5 times. The United States is expected to remain heavily import-dependent despite this enormous surge in lithium battery consumption.

This report presents an action plan to accelerate the development of a robust domestic manufacturing base and supply chain. It contains 26 recommendations to bolster the US lithium battery sector.

Consumer opinions on EV adoption, brand perception, and advanced technologies in the automotive sector

The global shift towards electric vehicles (EVs) is gaining momentum, but affordability, range anxiety, and lack of charging infrastructure remain significant barriers to adoption in different markets. The ongoing vehicle inventory crisis is leading to consumers being more accepting of longer delivery times, but product quality still tops the list of factors driving consumer decisions. Dealers continue to engender the most trust among consumers. While interest in connected vehicle features is relatively high, consumers are less willing to subscribe to these services and would prefer to pay for them upfront or on a per-use basis.

This report presents the key findings from a 2023 global automotive consumer study, focusing on EMEA countries. It explores consumer opinions on EV adoption, brand perception, and advanced technologies in the automotive sector. The report aims to help companies in the region prioritize and position their business strategies and investments.

The Netherlands Leads in Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure with Over 123,000 (Semi)Public Charging Points and Nearly 1000 Fast Charging Locations

The adoption of electric cars is rapidly increasing across Europe, with the Netherlands leading the way. By the end of 2022, there were over 328,000 electric passenger cars on Dutch roads, accounting for nearly 4% of all passenger cars. These vehicles are primarily charged at home or on private parking spaces, with public charging infrastructure available for charging on-the-go and in public areas. The Netherlands boasts over 123,000 (semi)public charging points and almost 1000 fast charging locations, making it a leader in charging infrastructure. With a ratio of 1 (semi)public charging point per 2.7 electric cars, the country is well-equipped to support the growing number of electric vehicles. In just one year, the number of fast charging locations increased by around 350, indicating a continued commitment to expanding charging infrastructure.

This report provides information on the costs of electric driving in comparison to driving a gasoline vehicle. It includes data on the average purchase price of electric vehicles, the costs of energy consumption, and the cost per kilometer of driving. The report also includes findings from consumer surveys conducted in 10 European countries.
