Electric Vehicles: 10 Predictions for 2012

In 2012, plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) will take major strides toward becoming a mature if small component of the overall vehicle fleet. The number of battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles sold and the variety of options for consumers will expand rapidly. The fruits of the multi-billion dollar investments in recent years in lithium ion battery manufacturing facilities will provide abundance in capacity that could outpace demand, but any oversupply will not impact vehicle pricing. In order to analyze the impacts of these and other key issues facing the EV industry, Pike Research has prepared a white paper that makes ten predictions about the continuing evolution of the market in 2012 and beyond.
