Background about the topicElectric and hybrid vehicles are being developed and introduced across the world due to rising fuel prices and the requirement to reduce emissions driving the transportation industry to develop truly sustainable alternative sources of energy to power vehicles. Governments have played a key role in providing incentives for the initial deployment of electric vehicles but there are still many technological and societal challenges to overcome in increasing adoption.
It is clear that electric and hybrid vehicles provide many benefits to the consumer, industry and the environment however there are still uncertainties regarding battery performance and lifespan, infrastructure, power supply and demand, and integration with other transport systems. For electric and hybrid vehicles to have commercially sustainable growth and achieve desired large scale consumer adoption there needs to be more collaboration across sectors.
