Under the international consensus on carbon reduction, the wave of electric vehicles has swept the world and has become the focus of attention from all walks of life. It is predicted that the proportion of electric vehicles will increase significantly from 2030, and it is estimated that it will reach 55% of the global car market by 2040, surpassing the proportion of traditional fuel vehicles. In the era of electric vehicles, it will indirectly lead the machine tool industry to develop a new layout.
With the rapid growth of the global electric vehicle market, research and development of the materials used in new electric vehicles has been accelerated. Improvements in infrastructure, such as an increase in the number of charging stations being used, has also become commonplace. When consumers buy electric vehicles, they hope to enjoy the convenience of being able to travel distances similar to those realized by internal combustion engine vehicles before needing to be refueled. So, the development of batteries with high storage capacity and short recharging times, as well as light-weight vehicle bodies that will reduce power consumption, has received much attention.
A charging station is a device that supplies electric energy for electric vehicles (including pure electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles), similar to the gas station used in fuel vehicles. How does it work and in what scenarios? Let’s find out.
With the growth of the electric vehicle market in 2021 having exceeded expectations, we will review several major events that occurred in 2021, and address key trends worth watching in 2022.
In 2021, the global electric vehicle market will grow by 40%, with total sales exceeding 3 million units. As of 2019, more than 2 million electric vehicles have been sold worldwide, accounting for 2.5% of all vehicle sales. It is estimated that the compound annual growth rate of global electric vehicles in the next ten years will reach 29%; the total sales of electric vehicles It will increase from 2.5 million in 2020 to 11.2 million in 2025 and 31.1 million in 2030.
With the rise of the global electric vehicle market, how should Taiwan’s opportunities be grasped?
At present, ordinary automobiles mainly use fossil fuels as their power source, which not only consumes a lot of petroleum resources but is also one of the main culprits of greenhouse gas emissions. In order to cope with the global trend of energy-saving and carbon reduction, many countries have adopted vehicle electrification as an important greenhouse gas reduction measure.
