Electric Cars: In the Wake of COVID-19

The electric car market is facing fresh, unforeseen challenges in 2020, and in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, electric vehicles with a higher upfront price are a hard sell. How is the industry, and how are governments, responding? Are electric cars de-railed from their pre-coronavirus trajectory?
The following IDTechEx webinar will answer these questions, discussing:
  • The impact of COVID-19 on total and electric car sales.
  • A TCO analysis for electric cars: are we at cost parity in 2020?
  • A regional overview of the top auto markets, and the contrasting EV responses amid coronavirus production shutdowns.
  • The place fuel cells have in electric car markets.
  • Electric traction motor technology trends.
  • The rise of autonomous technology, and the impact on the car market.
This webinar shares some of the research from the new IDTechEx report, "Advanced Electric Cars 2020-2040".
