06 How will Covid-19 affect EV sales? Lockdown special!
How is the EV market going to be impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic? We explore a number of factors:- the impact on global GDP- overall global car market- improved environment and buyer sentiment for EVs- reluctance to use public transport- oil prices plummeting- market shakeup - what does the ‘new normal’ look like? Who knows...“Gas prices would have to fall below $10 per barrel - or go into negative territory - before gas-powered vehicles can start challenging EVs' low operating costs.”“We’re not hearing of BEV supply chain investments being scaled back or deliberately delayed”“Europe BEV sales forecast for 2020…is 625k which is 75% up on 2019”https://www.venson.com/Media/ViewNews/177https://lmc-auto.com/news-and-insights/covid-19-bev-sales/https://www.transportxtra.com/publications/local-transport-today/news/65343/people-will-be-reluctant-to-use-public-t/https://oilprice.com/Energy/Energy-General/The-Oil-Price-Crash-Wont-Stop-The-Tesla-Boom.htmlhttps://www.buick.com/shop-click-driveTurn up the nice birdsong sounds at the start :-)Forgot to mention EU emissions directive as well.

02 EV Planes Trains and Automobiles 2019
In this episode (recorded Fall/Autumn 2019) we take a quick look at the prospects for electric aircraft, battery powered trains, plus a very high level view of how far electric cars have come in the last decade and how some vested interests are trying to prevent change.PlanesAre we likely to see an electric plane anytime soon? Transatlantic distances look to be decades off, but there are some promising initiatives underway with lightweight short range aircraft used in pleasure tours and island hopping. https://sydney.edu.au/news-opinion/news/2019/09/23/climate-explained--why-don-t-we-have-electric-aircraft-.html https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0008jfk (BBC 'In Business' radio show - Flying Green) (UK only) TrainsThere's a fair amount of activity in the rail space, being driven by manufacturers, train operators and governments. And one innovative approach resulting in being first to market.
