"Well-funded startups go straight to pure electric. Tesla Roadster will have 1000 kilometers range matching gasoline: it will then become commonplace. Those buying internal combustion vehicles hope the city and country bans will not apply to hybrids but they face increasing range anxiety from the number of gas stations plummeting - down 90% in the UK in recent years for example as charging stations increase. They also have financial anxiety from dropping resale values", IDTechEx’ Chairman observes.
"There is absolutely nothing to reverse dropping market share for plug-in hybrids leading to decline in sales numbers. Indeed, with new inputs, we have just revised our forecasts down to show plug-in car sales at zero in 2030. Technologically they are becalmed while pure-electric is evolving fast - from camper mode to solar versions that never plug in", concluded Harrop.
