China, European Union to Dialogue on EV Tariffs

Top officials from China and the European Union have revealed that the two major EV markets are holding talks on electric vehicle tariffs. Depending on how the discussions go, Chinese automakers may be spared from a series of tariffs that would have made their EVs much more expensive in Europe. Chinese EVs were set to lose their unique affordability in the European Union after EU leaders announced that they were considering levying provisional tariffs on electric vehicle imports from China. This came months after the European Commission began investigating whether the Chinese government was artificially lowering EV prices undercutting European…

Think Tank Says China Invested at Least $230B to Establish EV Industry

Research from a Washington-based think tank has revealed that China invested at least $230 billion into its electric-vehicle industry to “flood the market” with more affordable Chinese-made battery electric vehicles (BEV). The analysis is in line with the European Commission's sentiment on the effect of Beijing’s subsidies on the global BEV industry. Furthermore, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) notes that this figure is a “highly conservative estimate” of the funds China has pumped into its EV sector. The east Asian nation’s investment in electric cars dwarfs anything any other country has spent on new energy vehicles over…

China Targets EU Farmers in Response to Tariffs on Chinese EVs

As many experts predicted, China has retaliated against the European Union’s recent decision to levy provisional tariffs on Chinese electric vehicles. The Commerce Ministry in China launched an antidumping investigation into pork exports from Europe this week, a move many pundits believe is in response to the EU’s tariffs on electric cars imported from China. Tensions between China and the EU began last year when the European Commission began investigating the influx of cheap Chinese electric cars into the regional bloc. EU leadership claimed that China had artificially powered electric vehicle prices by pumping billions of dollars’ worth of subsidies…

Used Electric Vehicle Prices Continue Slumping

Secondhand electric vehicle prices have maintained their downward trend several weeks after they first fell; they are now costing customers several thousand dollars less compared to similar vehicles with internal combustion engines. For drivers who were interested in switching to battery electric vehicles (BEVs) but were held back by prices, this represents the best time to finally ditch their fossil-fuel powered vehicles and replace them with BEVs. A recent analysis published by iSeeCars has revealed that with the price difference between the BMW 3 Series and a secondhand Tesla Model 3 shrinking rapidly, the premium that has been associated with…

VW to Offer EV Buyers Solar-Panel Option to Cut Charging Costs

Volkswagen has revealed that it is looking to cut electric-vehicle charging costs by offering solar photovoltaic panels to its customers. The German automaker says drivers who take the solar-panel deal will be able to lower their charging costs by up to 40% by using solar energy to supplement their regular charging. Although charging an electric car typically costs less than fueling an internal combustion engine (ICE) over the long-term, installing a home charger can be quite costly and requires dedicated space that a significant portion of drivers don't have. Furthermore, public EV-charging infrastructure is still too insufficient to support mass…

The EU to Announce Tariffs on Chinese EVs Soon

The European Union (EU) is poised to impose tariffs on electric cars manufactured in China to protect European carmakers from cheap Chinese imports. Experts expect EU leaders to inform China that it will levy taxes on battery electric cars imported from the East Asian nation sometime this week, a move that could potentially start a trade war between the regional bloc and China. Many experts believe that once the EU launches the first shot, China will push back with retaliatory measures that affect European exports ranging from cognac to cheese. The EU first took action against Chinese EVs last year…

IEA Unveils Online Tool for Comparing ICE Vehicle Lifetime Emissions to EVs

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has launched an online tool to compare lifetime emissions of different vehicles. The interactive tool will allow users to compare the greenhouse-gas emissions of internal combustion engine (ICE) cars, battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) over their entire lifetimes. With this calculator, users will be able to measure greenhouse-gas emissions from the extraction and processing of raw materials to vehicle production, as well as use by customers, granting them an estimate of the direct and indirect emissions created by producing and using different types of cars. It is one of the…

Used EV Sales Surge Despite Dip in New Vehicle Sales

While new electric vehicle sales have been declining for several months amid high interest rates and purchase prices, green-energy proponents could draw some comfort from the fact that consumers are turning to the used-EV market in droves. Thanks to a confluence of factors, including falling prices in the secondhand electric-vehicle market along with tax breaks, used EVs are seeing a resurgence in sales. Buying a used vehicle is the only way most American drivers will be able to own an EV. With the average new electric car costing at least $10,000 more than a similar fossil-fuel vehicle, the majority of…
