Government across the world have started to set aggressive targets to raise the share of electric vehicles. Automakers are responding by launching models at multiple price points. But consumer uptake is patchy and critics argue is dependent on subsidies.  
Questions remain: 
  • Will EVs be as cheap as petrol/diesel alternatives? 
  • When can they take a big share of the auto market? 
  • Will the battery supply chain be able to match rising demand from EVs? 
  • How will EVs impact the metal markets, particularly as battery technology evolves? 
  • What business models will be needed to build charging infrastructure?
Join Bloomberg NEF as it presents its forecasts on the future of mobility and the opportunities that will get created across the supply chain.
