The 2016 Paris autoshow is in full swing as car makers try to swing consumers to their latest designs and technologies. Electric cars definitely in style this year with every major car maker and many new companies showing off what have.
In some cases they are showing prototypes of vehicles that may be produced someday but many are showing off electric cars that are being sold right now.
BMW is interviewed by Bloomberg news and it is very obvious that BMW considers electric vehicles or e-mobility to be the wave of the future and today. Many have predicted that it will take decades to adopt electric vehicles in any meaningful number. There are all after all billions of combustion engine cars on the road today right?
The truth is that battery technology is improving so quickly that it will not be very long before electric vehicles offer longer range than combustion engine models. Electric vehicles already benefit from faster acceleration, longer life, longer warranties and very little maintenance.
How Fast Will Consumers Move To Electric Vehicles.
I wonder if BMW believes this e-mobility revolution is likely to come much quicker that most people predict?
