Palm Beach, FL – March 16, 2021 – The global market for EVs has been growing consistently over the last few years along with a rapid growth in popularity with consumers, and expectations for the next several years are projected to grow at an even more substantial rate as to both number of vehicles and resulting revenues. The electric vehicles market has witnessed rapid evolution and is projected to achieve continued growth in the coming years. Favorable government policies and support in terms of subsidies and grants, tax rebates and other non-financial benefits in the form of car pool lane access, and new car registration (specifically in China where ICE engine new car registration are banned in some urban areas) the increasing vehicle range, better availability of charging infrastructure and proactive participation by automotive OEMs would drive the global electric vehicle sales. In addition, the growing sensitivity of various governments toward a cleaner environment has increased the demand for zero-emission vehicles. Developed nations such as the US, Germany, and the UK are actively promoting the use of electric vehicles to reduce emissions, which has resulted in the growth of electric vehicle sales. The future of EVs is expected to be bright and with time the price of batteries, one of the most vital components in an EV, is reducing significantly which would make EVs more affordable.

Extreme Vehicle Battery Technologies Corp. (CSE: ACDC) BREAKING NEWS: EV Battery Tech Launches the IoniX Pro Smart Charger – EV Battery Tech targets disrupting one of the fastest growing segments in the EV industry – Extreme Vehicle Battery Technologies Corp. (the “Company” or “EV Battery Tech”) is pleased to officially announce the launch of its previously unveiled IoniX Pro EV Smart Charger Series (the “EV Smart Charger”).
One of the World’s Fastest Growing Markets – The Electric Vehicle (EV) market is one of the fastest growing markets in the world. Projected to grow almost 5x over the next 6 years, the Company wants to ensure it was not only part of this rapidly growing revolutionary change, but also wants to be a disruptive force in it.
In order for EV’s to grow at such a rapid pace, it is necessary that infrastructure be built to allow for such growth. One of the most obvious necessities are EV charging stations. Similar to the absolute requirement of gas stations for gasoline and diesel fueled vehicles to operate, it is equally important to build EV charging stations for EV’s to be able to operate.
Billions of EV Charging Infrastructure Spending – EV infrastructure has become a global priority as major governments and corporations have committed to spending billions of dollars (USD) towards building EV charging infrastructure.
Royal Dutch Shell (Shell), one of the world’s largest oil and gas companies, has recently announced its plans to increase its number of charging stations to 500,000 by 2025.
President Joe Biden has recently proposed to build 550,000 EV charging stations in the next few years, as part of the $2 trillion USD plan to fight climate change.
“Our brilliant design and engineering teams have done it again!” stated Bryson Goodwin, President and CEO of EV Battery Tech. “The Company has once again taken one of the fastest growing products and introduced what we expect to be a version that is far superior to anything else on the market today. We believe the EV Smart Charger will be one of best-selling products and we are very excited for this launch.”
“To say we have had a busy start to the new year would be a massive understatement. We have no plans in slowing down, in fact, we have just scratched the surface of what’s to come in 2021.” Read this entire press release and more news for ACDC at: https://www.financialnewsmedia.com/news-acdc
