The Future of the Plug-In

Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) are an important component of Go Electric's technology portfolio for achieving sustainability and energy security.

However, the current market share for these vehicles is quite small.

Obstacles that hinder market share include high vehicle cost, driving range limitations for EVs, and charging availability (just to name a few).

Policy makers and stakeholders need a better understanding of the effect of this important option in order to develop effective strategies to advance the commercial viability of these vehicles.

Go Electric brings a simple 1-Solution to contribute to clean energy transportation.

30 Reasons to Buy Electric

From boosting your local economy to saving your lungs to simply a more fun experience! you'll be surprised at the 30 reasons outlined at: https://cleantechnica.com/2019/06/16/30-reasons-to-buy-an-electric-car-today/

 

Excerpt:
“Air pollution from road transport costs OECD countries approximately $1 trillion a year in negative health effects (cancer, premature death, asthma, heart attacks, etc.),” as noted in another article $1 trillion ain’t pocket change — and there’s suffering that goes along with it."

Fuel Economy & Our Environment

Excerpt:

For those vehicles that do not use liquid fuels—such as electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles operating on electricity, and compressed natural gas vehicles—the labels display miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent (MPGe). Think of this as being similar to MPG, but instead of presenting miles per gallon of the vehicle’s fuel type, it represents the number of miles the vehicle can go using a quantity of fuel with the same energy content as a gallon of gasoline. This allows a reasonable comparison between vehicles using different fuels. For example, you can use MPGe to compare a compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle with a gasoline vehicle; even though CNG is not dispensed or burned in gallons."

CO2 Emissions at All-Time High

Excerpt:
“[Current] energy and climate policies are not sufficient to overcome the growth in economic activity or energy-use growth,” said Glen Peters, research director at the Center for International Climate Research in Norway and a co-author of the new report. “So there’s no other alternative but to ramp up policies, basically, otherwise emissions will keep rising.”

EV Market Share by State

Sortable tables include sales of electric vehicles (PHEV and BEV) and the EV market share (percent of EVs sold of total light vehicles sold within each state) for all 50 US states and Washington, D.C.

More Information

The Transportation Energy Evolution Modeling (TEEM) Program at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) recently performed an analysis of the market share potential of plug-in hybrids and EVs to determine (1) the approximate distribution of PEV market shares in future years and (2) the key factors that affect market penetration.

The study projected the market share for plug-in hybrids and EVs from 2010 through 2050 by performing a Monte Carlo simulation using the Acceptance of Advanced Automotive Technologies (MA3T) model and @Risk®.

Details of the study are described in the published article "Quantifying the Uncertainty of the EV Market": Results from Monte Carlo Simulations Using a Nested Logit Model.

By the Numbers: What We're Facing

Electric Cars reduce carbon emissions by 6,777 pounds a year.

Let's review the numbers based on the current options for rideshare available to us and our dear First Responders:

 

In 2019, 110 million people used Uber...

There are an estimated 3 million Uber drivers in 65 countries (some 327,000 in 2015 and 750,000 in 2017 in the USA alone)

Lyft has claimed 700,000 drivers in USA and 1.5 million globally

As of 2018, there were approximately 207,920 Taxi Drivers in the USA alone.

Here's a little critical math for you:

3,000,000 Uber

1,500,00 Lyft

207,920 Taxis

---- Equals: 4,707,920 as an underestimation

4,707,920

x.   6,777 pound per car

---- Equals: 31,905,573,840 pounds of carbon emission worldwide

 

Other estimates arrive at the 1,234,920 Uber, Lyft, and Taxi Drivers in the USA alone generating 1,410,100,840 pounds of carbon emission annually in the USA by 2025.
