BYD Replaces Tesla as Top Producer of Electric Vehicles Globally

Last year, electric vehicles continued to make history when yearly output for the first time surpassed 10,000,000 vehicles. This is a significant increase from the 6,700,000 made in 2021.

How Mechanics Could Be Impacted by EV Proliferation

U.S. President Joe Biden has pledged that by 2032, two-thirds of all new vehicles sold in the country will be powered by electricity. Many significant manufacturers, such as General Motors, have declared that they will completely discontinue producing ICE vehicles in 2035. The future generation of auto mechanics will also be impacted by this change, in addition to drivers. Many workers in this business will be driven out by the rise of electric cars, according to Sam Cicinelli. That is mainly because electric cars require less maintenance. AAA estimates that the average annual maintenance cost of conventional vehicles is $949,…

As EV Prices Tumble on Chinese Market, Automakers Turn to Exports

BDEW Says Germany Boosted EV Charging Network by 35% in 2022

The BDEW recently said that last year there was an increase of 35% in electric vehicle charger stations over the level required to meet the increasing numbers of battery electric vehicles being rolled out in Germany.

Significant Drop in the Price of Lithium Could Result in More Affordable EVs

Prices of lithium have been falling sharply since early this year, meaning that less expensive electric vehicles may be expected in the future. After a two-year surge, the main battery ingredient declined by more than 65% as of January 2023. In November, the price reached a peak at $85,000, and Jean-Charles Cachon, an analyst from the mining industry, says it's too high to be sustainable. Currently, this metal is now going for less than $30,000 a metric ton. Cachon pointed to China's withdrawal of the electric vehicle subsidies that led to slower sales and a reduction in demand for these…
