Good news EV enthusiasts: Electric cars may actually catch up faster than we think!
Europe will be the first to reach a new era of automobiles in 2028, when EV sales are expected to outpace other powertrain sales, according to the latest forecasts. After that, China will follow in 2033, and the United States will not reach it until 2036. However, Europe is expected to remain in the lead until 2031, while China will win the torch from 2032 to 2050.
In particular, EY predicts that by 2045, EV sales will outpace traditional competitors and account for less than 1% of total sales.
This scenario does not seem unreasonably optimistic, given the new circumstances that have emerged in the automotive world.
First, there is important domestic regulatory support. To name a few, the new US administration has announced incentives to buy EVs and the development of charging infrastructure. Similarly, many EU member states, including Norway, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, offer subsidies and other non-monetary incentives. The same applies to China.
So will 2045 mark an official EV victory? Maybe, but I hope it happens sooner.
