The electric vehicle (EV) has shifted from the future to the here and now. As manufacturers have put billions into research and development of electric vehicles, several stand poised to join the market with those companies that currently have EVs on America’s roads.
Here are four important variables that will determine the adoption rate of EVs in 2021:
- The new White House administration has promised to build 500,000 charging stations in the next ten years. According to a recent estimate by Bloomberg, that is five times more than the number today and it could lead to 25 million EVS on United States highways by 2030.
- For auto manufacturers, the main goal of making EVS is to satisfy government emission efficiency mandates. But, the price of batteries has proved to be a barrier, so the EVs are mostly compact cars – something American drivers turn their nose up at as they continue to prefer SUVs and crossovers. But, with batteries getting cheaper and better, automakers can now deliver what drivers want: roomier vehicles that can travel on a single charge for longer.
- American drivers have always had a love affair with trucks and now 2021 seems to be the year where electric trucks will storm the market. The Rivian R1T, manufactured in Normal, Illinois, is rolling out in June and General Motors’ GMC Hummer will start arrival in 2021. Ford’s electric F-150 is due in 2022.
- 2021 will also likely see big transit and bus companies turn to electric fleets. The unknown is whether COVID-19 will continue to disrupt the need for new vehicle purchases, such as school buses. But, the new stay-at-home transition has caused a surge in delivery trucks and vans. Amazon and UPS will certainly need new delivery vehicles in 2021. In the coming year, Amazon expects to receive the first of 100,000 electric delivery trucks from Rivian. And, there are startups across the globe offering to provide electric vans and delivery trucks to companies around the world.
However, whether electric vehicles take root in 2021 or their adoption rate is still years out, dealerships still must ensure that their vehicles all have healthy, clean interiors.
