The export of used light duty vehicles (LDVs) has increased significantly. In 2015, 3.4 million used LDVs were exported globally, by 2019 this had increased to 4.8 million. Most likely due to the covid-19 pandemic, there was a reduction of used LDVs in 2020 to 4 million.

China is currently the global leader in battery electric vehicle (BEV) sales annually, a position it has held since 2015 when it surpassed the US. The one positive policy priority in China’s COVID-19 recovery focused on transitioning the transport sector towards development of public transport systems and electrified transport.

This study focuses on EV charging infrastructure, related policy and regulatory measures, grid integration of EVs, and the way forward for smooth EV adaption in the Indian EV ecosystem.

Long-haul trucks are responsible for the bulk of road freight CO2 emissions in Europe. However, at the time the heavy-duty vehicle CO2 standards were finalized in the European Union in 2019, there was little information available on zero-emission technologies.

Electric vehicle sales are rising fast in Europe and a growing number of governments have set targets for phasing out new internal combustion vehicle sales. A fundamental input in deciding the feasibility of such policies is how quickly battery electric vehicles can reach price parity with their internal combustion counterparts.

This follow-up to a 2019 ICCT study re-evaluates the 5-year total cost of ownership (TCO) of four-wheeler battery electric vehicles (BEVs) used for ride-hailing and compares the results with comparable conventional gasoline, diesel, and compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle models in 2020.

The pace of vehicle electrification in China and globally hinges on how quickly electric vehicle costs decline.
