The charts you need to understand global trends in electric cars, in one place.
thanks for these visualizations
Very interesting - NZ was an interesting outlier on public chargers
Hannah, do you have data the the number of EVs in each country? It would be interesting to see how many EV cars are on the road compared to the number of charging stations.
This is fantastic, thank you!
This is really great, thanks. Out of curiosity, I asked a colleague in Belgium why plug-in hybrids are so popular there, and he said it is purely due to tax incentives that expire this month. It will be interesting to see how quickly the mix shifts to pure EVs if this is also the case in other countries with a high ratio of PHEVs to BEVs.
This might be a US-centric question, but to me a key question about electric cars is to what degree one company (Tesla) will continue to dominate the market. Are they on track to be the dominant EV supplier, as their market cap would suggest? Or are some other manufacturers eventually going to develop popular "high-end" EVs? I'm not sure if "high-end" is the right term, I just mean some way of differentiating between markets like the US and markets like China.
Hi Hannah, I recently read a book called "Critical Comparisons of Low- Carbon Technologies" by Tushar Choudhary and in his analysis of transportation options he recommends that Hydriv vehicles be prioritized over fully EV based on the following characteristics: Cost, magnitude of CO2 reductions, speed to deploy, potential for environmental impacts as technologies scale up, and whether they depend on new infrastructure/technologies.
Are you familiar with the book? I've always thought that hybrids should be the main focus currently, as they reduce emissions and fill in the gaps for what EVs can't do yet. What are your thoughts?
Awesome work here, Hannah.
Will come back and get into the weeds of this throughout the week.
Fascinating. Thank you for spending time creating this.
