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.)

      Why keep using old polluted air video? I've been to China recently, it was clear blue sky 90% of the time. The other 10% was hazy but not like what the US media likes to show.

      Norway won’t be Detroit, cause we don’t make our cars. But the rise of EV’s have been insane, in 2015, 15% of new cars sold was BEV’s, around 35% was diesels, 30% was petrol and 20% was hybrids (petrol\diesel and electric), the petrol and diesel sales aren’t totally correct, could be more split, but EV’s and hybrids should be correct.
      But In 2018, 45% of all new cars is EV’s (Tesla got a huge percentage of those sales), 28% is hybrids (mostly Toyota hybrids), 14% is diesels and 13% is petrol. It has changed ALOT in 3 years. And number of EV’s keep rising in 2019.

      U do know the whole world can EASLY be powered by solar power alone right?? It’s just these fuckin oil companies that holds us back. And even if the electricity gets produced out of coal, they will be 40% cleaner than ICE ;).

      Plus I’m wondering, do you have any idea how much goes on behind the scenes of fuel? do you know how much energy it takes to make diesel and petrol out of oil? it’s insane. Also it’s not just the oil itself and the way you gotta use it to produce diesel and petrol, you also have to think about how much the tug’s that tows the oil rig out pollutes, how much the oil rig itself pollutes (ICE generators that makes electricity for example), how much the ships that transports it to whatever country pollutes (they run on raw oil BTW, not diesel), how much the refineries that produces the diesel and petrol pollutes and how much the trucks that transports the diesel and petrol to fuel stations pollutes (they stand for 40% of all the pollution btw).

      @Genkuro Shuriken
      Power production is really not an issue.
      Power production is dimensioned for peak demand and peak demand is during a fairly short of time.
      If majority of cars are charged "of peak" what would happen is only a higher degree of power production utilization, a good thing.

      Since most cars will be charged night time, of peak, it would even out the load.
      The "Capacity factor" (the % of power produced of the capacity it could produce) in regards to "conventional" power generation coal and gas is 50%-60%

      The change to Wind and solar is a different issue once they become a dominant part of power generation storage has to be introduced big time.
      During the transition gas will be used for some baseload and as peakers.

      In short there is no problem with any "electricity shortage"

      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
