Palm Beach, FL – November 2, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary: Electric vehicles (EVs) have become a much more attractive choice to consumers in recent years thanks to increased range, battery life, efficiency, and affordability. An electric vehicle is a vehicle that operates on an electric motor rather than an internal combustion engine, which generates electricity by burning fuels and gases. Additionally, technical advancements like faster charging and cloud-connected charging equipment will support the market demand for electric vehicles in the next years. Due to increasing regulatory assistance, many EV manufacturing facilities plan to increase their capacity to produce electronic vehicles. The market will greatly benefit from this governmental assistance because it suggests that the supply of EVs will be able to keep up with the demand. Since gasoline is a fossil fuel, its supply will eventually run out. It must be developed sustainably, and the market for electric vehicles must expand as a result. Alternative energy sources are the way to do this. Using electric vehicles (EVs) is more economical than conventional transportation. According to a report from Custom Market Insights: “The past ten years have seen a decline in the price of EV batteries due to scientific improvements and the mass manufacture of EV batteries. Since EV batteries are one of the more expensive parts of the car, this has caused the price of electric vehicles to drop. Approximately USD 1,100 per kWh was the cost of an EV battery in 2010. However, the cost dropped to around USD 137 per kWh by 2020, dropping as low as USD 120 per kWh in 2021. These batteries can be purchased in China for as little as $100 per kWh.” Active Companies in the markets today include: Mullen Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN), Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA), Rivian Automotive, Inc. (NASDAQ: RIVN), Nikola Corporation (NASDAQ: NKLA), Lucid Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: LCID).
The report projected: “According to Custom Market Insights (CMI), The size of the Global Electric Vehicle (EV) Market was worth around USD 170 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 205.4 billion in 2022 and is predicted to grow to around USD 1105 billion by 2030 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 23% between 2022 and 2030… The global Electric Vehicle Market size is projected to grow from 12,551 thousand units in 2022 to 45,898 thousand units by 2030, at a CAGR of 23% (2022-2030). Over the forecast period, the plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of more than 105%. The purpose of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), which work in conjunction with low-range, high-voltage (HV) battery systems, is to improve the utilization of internal combustion engines. PHEVs have a more potent electric motor and a substantially larger battery that can be recharged using the ICE, regenerative braking, and an external power source. Consequently, PHEVs provide consumers with a versatile and practical transportation alternative.”

Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) has recently said in the third quarter, it produced over 365,000 vehicles and delivered over 343,000 vehicles. Historically, our delivery volumes have skewed towards the end of each quarter due to regional batch building of cars. As our production volumes continue to grow, it is becoming increasingly challenging to secure vehicle transportation capacity and at a reasonable cost during these peak logistics weeks. In Q3, we began transitioning to a more even regional mix of vehicle builds each week, which led to an increase in cars in transit at the end of the quarter. These cars have been ordered and will be delivered to customers upon arrival at their destination.
