Global Electric Vehicle Outlook 2019

At the Tenth Clean Energy Ministerial, the International Energy Agency launched the 2019 edition of the Global EV Outlook, the flagship publication of the Electric Vehicles Initiative (EVI). 

The Global EV Outlook combines historical analysis with projections to 2030, providing key insights on electric vehicle and charging infrastructure deployment, ownership cost, energy use, carbon dioxide emissions and battery material demand. The report includes policy recommendations that incorporate learning from front-running countries to inform policy makers and stakeholders that consider policy frameworks and market systems for electric vehicle adoption.

This year’s edition features analysis on the performance of electric cars and competing powertrain options in terms of greenhouse gas emissions over their life cycle. It also discusses key challenges in the transition to electric mobility and appropriate solutions including vehicle and battery cost developments, supply and value chain sustainability of battery materials, implications of electric mobility for power systems, government revenue from taxation and the interplay between electric, shared and automated mobility options.
