Bloomberg recently released reports that nearly 80 percent of the global auto market is pushing toward phase-out of petroleum cars and adoption of electric vehicles.

Their article suggests that EV sales will overtake internal combustion engines in just over 20 years - sooner than some governments & companies expected!


When do you think EV sales will overtake the internal combustion engine - do these estimates seem possible?

20 years sounds about right to me. It all depends on how battery technology advances. But I think we've passed the tipping point where increasing demand and profit potential feeds accelerated research in a virtuous cycle.

I am not in favor of a ban so much as taxing petrol fueled light vehicles.
Registration fee needs to stop going down each year and start going up.

Around here (and elsewhere) registration fees have gone up, but only for BEVs. :(
