China accounts for 56% of sales while EU and USA/Canada contribute for 23% and 17% respectively.

Top 10 countries volume-wise. All posted huge growth except Japan which posted negative growth. While overall sales were down by 12% in China, BEV sales grew at +111% resulting in higher market share for BEVs (4% in 2019 vs 1.9% in 2018). Important thing is Chinese companies account for 90% of BEV sales.

Top 10 countries by market share: Norway is the undisputed leader, market share wise with 37.1% of all sales are BEVs there.

Shell rolls out electric vehicle charging points at fuel stations in Singapore, first in Southeast Asia.

Quote:
The electric vehicle charging service, ‘Shell Recharge’, will be available at 10 Shell petrol stations in Singapore by October, this year or about 20% of its retail network in the city-state
Quote:
But unlike the other markets, Singapore has a negligible electric vehicle (EV) population.
Quote:
A Shell-commissioned study on electric vehicle consumer behavior showed that 52% of Singaporeans are deterred to buy or use an electric car as they think there are not enough charging stations in Singapore
Shell plans to make more of such low-carbon energy solutions available in Singapore in the following months and years.

Tesla, CATL, BYD are among the firms that shown interest in setting up battery factories in India. Govt plan is to provide subsidies, tax breaks till 2030, concessional loans to upto 50 GWh of battery capacity. The minimum ceiling for bidding is 5GWh, with the maximum allowed quantum of 20GWh.

Consumers avoid Electric Cars as concerns of Range, Price and Charging : Survey

Quote:
Almost half (~40%) of respondents were concerned about each of these issues, even though modern 250-mile range EVs are available new for under $30k post-incentive and are capable of 50-250 kW charging rates on thousands of chargers installed across the US

Came across this very interesting and unique EV potential where the Vehicle never needs to be recharged, literally working without consuming any energy !

The 45 Ton dump truck does with ease - Whilst the truck goes down with more than double the weight, the regenerative braking system recaptures more than enough energy to refill the charge the eDumper used going up

Toyota to provide 3,700 vehicles including EVs at Tokyo Olympic.

Quote:
Among the 3,700 vehicles, there will be both fully electric and electrified vehicles, which include Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV), Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) like hydrogen-powered Mirai, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV), the Prius PHV along with the Accessible People Mover.


As the brand claims, among the electrified vehicles provided, Toyota will include approximately 500 FCEVs and 850 BEVs, the largest of any fleet for a Games to date.
Quote:
Out of the approx. 3,700 mobility products and/or vehicles for Tokyo 2020, 2,700 vehicles will be part of the official fleet providing transportation support between venues during the Olympic Games. These will be commercially-available vehicles, such as Mirai, etc. Preliminary calculations suggest that the CO2 emitted by the commercially-available fleet for Tokyo 2020 will average less than 80 g/km*1, resulting in a reduction by approx. half of the typical amount when compared to a similar sized fleet of mostly conventional gasoline and diesel models

BHEL inaugurated 5 solar-based EV charging stations on the Delhi-Chandigarh highway. The chargers are located at the resorts of Haryana Tourism Corporation Ltd. at Ambala, Kurukshetra, Karnal, Panipat and Sonepat on Delhi-Chandigarh highway. The establishment of EV chargers at regular intervals over the entire 250 kms stretch between Delhi and Chandigarh. As part of the project, BHEL has also developed a Central Monitoring System (CMS) for EV Chargers with a user friendly Mobile App. Each station equipped with rooftop solar power plant to supply green energy for chargers.

I have a few questions and I am still not sold on EV being successful in India.

1) We are still heavily dependent on coal to generate electricity to fuel these batteries. Are any steps being taken to reverse this trend and focus only on renewable capacity additions because pollution in general is only getting substituted from Petrol/Diesel to burning Coal.

2) I have read that renewable capacity additions are not finding many takers due to the very low tarrif rates set by the govt. Have any steps been taken to improve it ?

3) There is huge transmission and distribution loss with electricity, almost 20% this is huge when we take into account that we are burning Coal, so pollution is more. Does govt have any fix for that ?

I'm also all for EV's but I like to see things logically and practically, if pollution is not going to reduce and the infrastructure is not there in India, why is the govt foolishly pushing EV's too hard ?

No. Coal based thermal plants produce most energy. Lot of emphasis is being placed on solar and wind power but the capacity addition is slow. Reality is that except for solar, india does not have any other reliable renewable energy source.

No. Govt says subsidies are being provided for capital infra structure and hence the govt purchase price is low.

Transmission loss , theft , free power for political appeasement etc. Not taking into account the fact that we really do not know what will happen to the existing power lines when load goes up especially at night when almost all EV's would be on charge mode. This would invariably mean that we burn more coal.

The overriding factor is that we would have a pollution free air, no el nino effect that disrupts monsoons , less forest fires, in a nutshell better environment or at least that's the promise. The power plants which would burn coal would be the single focus point for all the pollution control strategies which is difficult but possible with proper tech.

I have one concern with respect to usage of EV’s and its charging concept. Let’s assume we take the EV on the longest drive ever imagined and you have to stay over at multiple hotel stays - you think they’re going to offer their power for free? Charging stations will take its time to crop up across length & breadth of country. In the meantime, if I’ve to use someone else’s AC unit to charge, I’m sure it will turn out to be a gamble in most of the areas for sure, isn’t it? A trivial concern but thought will take community thoughts on this. We obviously can’t argue with the lender for the charge levied on us but I’m sure they’ll start minting money for the power drawn.

Yes of course the hotel will charge you for it. Why ever would they give it free. Why should we even expect that it might be free. When you book a hotel room the tariff includes the cost of electricity a guest consumes on an average - same with this.

No, Iím aware it wonít be free of cost. May be the way I put it made it seem like it. Apologies. I was referring to scamming customers on this as well showing units we have consumed more than the car wouldíve really taken.

Very high chance of it happening unless sealed electronic meters are used which I am told are less prone to tampering.

More than likely that one will be charged such a premium for the ability to charge ones car that the hotel might graciously not charge for the electricity used!
