Global EV Outlook 2019
Scaling-up the transition to electric mobility
The Global EV Outlook is an annual publication that identifies and discusses recent
developments in electric mobility across the globe. It is developed with the support
of the members of the Electric Vehicles Initiative (EVI).
Combining historical analysis with projections to 2030, the report examines key areas
of interest such as electric vehicle and charging infrastructure deployment, ownership
cost, energy use, carbon dioxide emissions and battery material demand. The report
includes policy recommendations that incorporate learning from frontrunner markets
to inform policy makers and stakeholders that consider policy frameworks and market
systems for electric vehicle adoption.
This edition features a specific analysis of the performance of electric cars and
competing powertrain options in terms of greenhouse gas emissions over their life
cycle. As well, it discusses key challenges in the transition to electric mobility
and solutions that are well suited to address them. This includes vehicle and battery
cost developments; supply and value chain sustainability of battery materials; implications
of electric mobility for power systems; government revenue from taxation; and the
interplay between electric, shared and automated mobility options.
