Sep.05 -- Electric vehicles only accounted for 1 percent of vehicle sales in 2017, but thanks to government intervention and car companies following suit, that's about to change, and quickly. Bloomberg QuickTake explains what our electric future looks like, and how fast it's going to get here. (Video by Henry Baker and Chiachi Lee.)

      Detroit used to produce left-hand Vehicle, China should compare Car Bike Vehicle Heavy Engineering equipment textile shipping Aeronautical Electric and electronic etc with low profile super global power Chennai. since, Detroit Vehicle are left-hand driving Car, USA is not competitor to China only Chennai is competitor to China

      currently China is no 1 but by Dec2019-35 Chennai will be no 1 in Vehicle/Electric Vehicle Globally

      Could you please add subtitles as Anna Hirtenstein’s speech is hard to follow. Perhaps her microphone is of bad quality or something.

      No mention of Model 3 taking the USA #5 spot for sedan sales (all fuel types) for the month of August. The only sedans to outsell it were the: Corolla, Camry, Accord, and Civic. The change is coming faster than you think it will.

      For automotive enthusiasts “petrol heads” in general. This just isn’t going to fly. Once people realize the battery degradation happens to their cars, range and the amount of power it sucks when charging @ my rate in California 21¢ a kWh a will cost me $21usd a charge. That’s great your saving $10-20usd a fillup right? WRONG! Wait until you have to take it in to have the battery replaced lol. (This is based on a p100d)

      If you love electric cars, don’t buy one...lease it.

      John Knott I respect that totally...I haven’t driven one yet so yes my statement is biased. I can’t lie though I’d love to have a button to push when I’m tired and need to kick back.

      I too live in California. With a Time Of Use meter you pay more like 8c per KW overnight. This is Los Angeles DWP rates. Or from a solar roof less still. I love classic cars, I love gas cars. I’ve owned a 56 Chevy as a daily driver and a 67. E Type as a weekend runabout. And a 69 Caddy DeVille convertible—I now drive a new Silverado and a Volt- believe me- electric is the future. Once you’ve driven a modern electric car it’s very hard to go back. Charging points is a problem that will be resolved in 5 years. I’m not here to swear, prove a point or face the planet. Electric cars are so much fun to drive. J

      China is, by far, the largest market for Plug-Ins. 2018 EV passenger car sales thru June were 373 000 units, 3 times higher than in USA, the #2 in the country ranking.

      If you're going to be ignorant then just keep your mouth shut. Alternatively, you can find the closest ditch and set yourself on fire/die there.
