The increased use of Electric Vehicles (EVs) is the first major game-changing revolution sweeping the automobile industry ever since the internal combustion engine changed the sector’s dynamics. Powered by improved battery technology and made extremely relevant by growing concerns over climate change, EVs are slowly but steadily moving towards becoming the dominant force in the automobile space. With EVs becoming a reality sooner than it was expected, investing in this technology will be key for all major players to stay relevant.
 

Is there global preparedness with the right plan for creating robust charging infrastructure required for EVs?

 

Are Automobile manufacturers focused enough on new technologies for EVs?

 

Is the required regulatory framework in place for the influx of EVs on roads?

 

Are we on the right path to develop sustainable battery storage?

 

Impact of COVID-19 on the pace of transition to EVs.
