Electric Vehicles: Land, Water, Air - IDTechEx Reports and Subscriptions

Electric vehicles, or e-mobility, use an electric motor for propulsion, as opposed to an internal combustion engine (ICE). Electric cars will eventually be dominated by a few giants; however, the components and enabling technologies are applicable to many other types of vehicles - land, sea and air. The appropriate infrastructure and vehicle performance (cost, range, lifetime etc) are key to the adoption rate of the technology.
 
Reports from IDTechEx Research appraise the market opportunity, giving detailed forecasts and assessment of the technologies, competitive landscape, value chain drivers, barriers, case studies and global trends.
