Electric car production will triple until 2021



The manufacture of electric vehicles will triple in the next three years, according to a study by the European Federation for Transport and Environment (T&E), based on data by research firm IHS Markit, which indicates that this sector will generate 120,000 new direct and indirect jobs.

The report of T & E specifies that the European manufacturers will make available to consumers up to a total of 214 more models of electric vehicles compared to the 60 available in 2018.

In addition, the study adds that by 2021, 90 fully electric models and 118 plug-in hybrids will be incorporated into the market. Among the causes is the fact that with these models, the manufacturers themselves will be able to meet the carbon dioxide (CO2) goal set for the EU, which is to reach cars with 95 grams of CO2 emissions per kilometers traveled.

In that sense, Ecodes, which is part of T & E, points out that if forecasts are met, by 2025, 22% of all vehicles manufactured will be able to be plugged in, this is more than enough to comply with the CO2 standard established by the EU.

"Thanks to the EU car CO2 standards, Europe is about to see a wave of new, longer range, and more affordable electric cars hit the market," said Lucien Mathieu, a transport and e-mobility analyst at T&E.

"That is good news, but the job is not yet done. We need governments to help roll out electric vehicle charging at home and at work, and we need changes to car taxation to make electric cars even more attractive than polluting diesel, petrol or poor plug-in hybrid vehicles."
