Why Electric Cars are Needed Now More Than Ever

During the COVID-19 pandemic, a source of tremendous hope for our environment, habitat and planet emerged: the auto industry saw a surge in the number of electric cars and vehicle drivers.
The global market of EVs grew from 8% in 2019 to 12% in the following year and has continued to surpass expectations in 2021.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. It is predicted that by 2026 electric vehicles will make up at least half of light vehicles sold globally. We will see zero-emission vehicles quickly replace combustion engines as the dominant choice for automotive travel.
From an environmental perspective, the EV takeover can’t come quick enough.
The fight against climate change will require markets to speed up the EV transition even further. For European Union to fulfill its Green Deal targets, we would need to see a reduction in light vehicle emissions by 90% by 2043.

The Forces Driving Faster EV initiation

EV and hybrids have achieved a large number of sales in recent years. In total, they account for 20-30% of the total revenue spent on cars.

The Right Time is Now!

Destination charging for electric cars is starting to take strength here in the UK. Cities on the larger scale have introduced a surplus of sustainable charging solutions such as pod points and low emission zones like the ULEV areas across London and Birmingham.
Mobile EV charging services have been introduced across the UK to provide a power solution to EV drivers that live in rural areas. These charging stations usually focus on providing energy to off-grid power installations. It is through mobile charging that events in the UK have the ability to provide fully electric and hybrid plugins with a power solution in what is commonly referred to as event ev charging.
All these factors add to a growing EV industry in the UK. Prior to these features, EV transport was limited to the accessibility of charging solutions and the range at which most vehicles were able to travel.
In 2021 going into 2022, we will have a solidified and continually growing EV industry in terms of the vehicles being produced and the charging solutions that are being developed.
There has never been a better time to make the switch to EV before the UK government’s plan to abolish the production of petrol and diesel engines by 2030.
