How Tesla Will Change The World. This is Part 2 of a four-part series on Elon Musk’s companies.

How Tesla Will Change The World

For an explanation of why this series is happening and how Musk is involved, start with Part 1. PDF and ebook options: We made a fancy PDF of this post for printing and offline viewing (see a preview here), and an ebook containing the whole four-part Elon Musk series: A Wait But Why post can be a few different things. One type of WBW post is the “let’s just take this whole topic and really actually get to the bottom of it so we can all completely get it from here forward.” Can electric cars disrupt the car market? Part 1: No.

The new Quantino EV with flow-cell battery, presented in Geneva 2016 Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) will do well to take more than 10% of global light duty vehicle market share by mid-century, writes research scientist Schalk Cloete.

Can electric cars disrupt the car market? Part 1: No

This is because BEVs with the large battery pack needed for broad consumer acceptance will remain more expensive than internal combustion engine (ICE) cars. According to Cloete, this price premium is unlikely to be accepted by the mass market even under optimistic future BEV integration scenarios. He adds that currently emerging data is starting to support this argument. Electric drive has numerous advantages over the internal combustion engine such as high efficiency over a wide range of power output, regenerative breaking and no tailpipe emissions.

The landmark partnership, between the manufacturers of the world’s best-selling 100 percent electric vehicle and the leading international architecture, engineering and design studio, concluded that the Fuel Station of the Future could actually be the car itself. The need for a sustainable and innovative refuelling network is becoming vital as the market shifts toward alternative sources like electric power. According to the latest World Bank data, today, more than half (54%) of the world’s population lives in cities and by 2050, seven out of every 10 people will live in urban areas, so it is imperative that the infrastructure exists to support this growth.

David Nelson, Co-Head of Design, Foster + Partners: “Integrating zero emission technologies into the built environment is vital in creating smarter, more sustainable cities. Electric cars won't save our cities. You could be forgiven for thinking that electric cars are a magic bullet for transforming the streets of the UK.

Electric cars won't save our cities

London mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith has claimed they will soon make buses in the capital redundant, and the city has launched a £100m project to encourage more people to use electric cars. There is, presumably, a clear case for saying London would be transformed for the better by electric vehicles. Alas, we struggled to find this case written down anywhere. So we sat down with a blank spreadsheet and tried to work it out from first principles. We began by listing the problems that motor vehicles currently bring to cities.

Electric cars will become as ubiquitous as the internet, says transport minister. “The internet started small, as a niche interest, but then it snowballed, and now it’s hard to imagine being without it.

Electric cars will become as ubiquitous as the internet, says transport minister

“I think we are seeing a similar picture emerging for ultra-low emission vehicles in Britain today. “ULEV sales are not just growing rapidly, they are rocketing.” In 1998, just 9 per cent of households had home access to the internet – but by 2004 that had increased to more than half of all homes, ONS data suggest. Some 85 per cent of households now have home internet access, the vast majority of them with broadband connections. Mr Jones added: “The internet only really snowballed when internet users, providers, website retailers and investors came together in sufficient numbers to create a tipping point.

Tesla Supercharger, la ricarica rapida è l’assicurazione sul futuro di Elon Musk. Il Salone di Ginevra vedrà il grande debutto europeo della Tesla Model X, il primo Suv elettrico della Casa di Palo Alto che andrà ad affiancarsi alla Roadster e alla Model S, in attesa della più popolare Model 3, l’auto che secondo il fondatore Elon Musk dovrebbe rivoluzionare il mercato delle elettriche.

Tesla Supercharger, la ricarica rapida è l’assicurazione sul futuro di Elon Musk

Ma di rivoluzione il vulcanico imprenditore californiano ne ha già iniziata una, quella dell’elettricità gratis, attraverso le sue colonnine di ricarica: i famosi Supercharger Tesla da 120 kW di potenza. Auto elettriche, Nissan: anche con corrente “sporca”, inquinano metà delle tradizionali.
