We want to ensure safety on the roads and motorways with no EV’s running out of charge. Range anxiety is one of the main issues holding EV’s back. But by incorporating our genset into the design of standard EV models, car manufacturers can optimise the size of the battery so that it can handle the average day to day journeys and has the genset available when it is needed on longer journeys.
Electrical Vehicles have become an essential part of transitioning away from the combustion engine and will bring substantial changes for vehicle manufacturers, governments and individuals. The last four years have seen an extraordinary surge in demand for electric vehicles in the UK, with new registrations of plug-in cars increasing from 3,500 in 2013 to more than 137,000 by March 2018.
As you can see from the map, we’re spread evenly across the length and breadth of the globe. With worldwide locations, we’re able to develop our technology further in specialist facilities.
And from these locations, we’re also able to cater to a national market, giving individual focus to each customer and their requirements.
To cut the answer short… yes, we really do!
With the EU planning to ban all internal combustion engines by 2040, major car companies such as Renault, Nissan, Tesla, BAIC, Chevrolet, BMW and Hyundai have already started to invest into the EV market.
And that’s not all. With particular focus on the UK’s EV market, there was a £540 million boost from the Autumn Budget 2017 announcements, stressing the priority on EV charging.
In 2017, EV’s had resumed the 50%-plus growth rates of previous years. We believe that by 2020, a global production of 50,000 units would represent approximately 2% of the worldwide output and new registrations of EV’s will range between 2.5% and 6% of market share. Continuing at this rate would mean that 1 out of 3 cars sold in 2025 would be electric.
