“People might not need more than 30-40 miles of driving range in a day, but they want a bigger number.”
This is Audi’s R&D boss, Peter Mertens, who predicts that demand for PHEV will decrease with growing driving ranges and quicker charging of pure EVs.
“In our extreme case, we project peak oil demand in 2024.”
From Goldman Sachs latest research that expects the EV market to grow more than 40-fold to 83 million vehicles by 2030, from 2 million in 2016.
