The recent skyrocketing of motor fuel prices created a lot of economic instability in world markets that has set an alarm. Depleting reserves of fossil fuels and rising levels of greenhouse emissions are expected to break electric vehicles (EVs) out of their niche end-user segments. The mainstream adoption of EVs will open up opportunities for utilities, suppliers and finance businesses, as efforts are being made to create a one-stop shop for vehicles and energy. Electric vehicles are bound to feature on the product roadmap of every OEM and open doors for a new industry, which is the electricity utility market. Innovative business models and distribution channels that have been making rounds will be discussed along with market measurements.

Companies have been chalking out innovative business models and related businesses are planting electric charging stations in some of the European countries. As a result of leasing trials conducted, OEMs may feel confident that battery leasing is one of the effective options to bring down the cost of ownership, says Anjan Hemanth Kumar, Senior Research Analyst with Frost Sullivan.

Highlights of the briefing include: key drivers, restraints and challenges, technology roadmaps, market size and forecasts, pricing analysis, business models, as well as charging infrastructure.

This briefing will benefit vehicle manufacturers, EV manufacturers, battery developers, governmental organizations, environmental associations, energy companies-electric utilities, energy-automobiles finances, distributors and dealers.
