Range anxiety is a real concern for changing our mindset around #ElectricVehicles.

Just how close to the left of the needle can we go?

Tomorrow I’ve got a few offsite #CSIRO meetings between #Newcastle & #Sydney, so why not come on:
“A day in the life of an #EV

Starting, NOW!
Off on the first leg of the #EV trip, leaving work for the day: I have an 8am meeting so will get a head start.

Leaving the charging point behind & starting with a ~full charge + range of 429 km.

Bring on tomorrow’s #RangeAnxiety experiment!
@TheDriven_io @AEVA_National #CSIRO
First leg of #RangeAnxiety experiment 🧪went as expected:

16 km trip from Office to Home, 15 km reduction in range.

Now to take the dog 🐕 for a bush walk & await the next experimental leg.

2019 US EV Sales Decreased an Estimated 7% to 9% – 6 Reasons Why

My latest EVAdoption article with 8 new charts analyzing various factors that drove the decrease in US EV sales in 2019

#ElectricVehicles @Tesla
bit.ly/2TJ0Epg
@Tesla 1) 2018 Was a Monster Year for EV Sales: Sales of EVs in 2018 were a record 328,818 units (using Auto Alliance numbers), a 74% increase over 2017.

Equaling or beating the 2018 sales volume was always going to be unlikely, because of the following additional 5 factors.
@Tesla 2. Tesla Model 3 Only Had “Modest” Growth: 
- M3 accounted for ~38.7% of all EV sales in 2018
- InsideEVs’ 2019 estimates = 48.2% of all US EV sales
- Increase of only 19,143 units/5.8% of all EV sales
- But 31% decline among the other top 10 selling EVs available in 2018 + 2019

The #Sony surprise is just the beginning. I expect many more surprise winners in #electricvehicle space. @Sony #CES2020 cnet.co/35unQd7 1/n
@Sony The traditional #auto behemoths with their fully depreciated plants & highly profitable operations don’t seem to have the ability or the appetite to look beyond their guzzling #ICE cars. bit.ly/2R0fPHo #electricvehicles 2/n
@Sony Similar statements have emerged from #toyota bit.ly/36D5Jmw and other biggies too. They don't seem to see the tsunami coming their way. #ElectricVehicles 3/n

There is a #GlobalSlowdown in the #automobile industry, but let’s blame Modiji

GM has cut 4000 jobs in US & Canada

#Volkswagen cut 37000 jobs internationally

Btw, let’s blame Modiji for pager, floppy discs, VCRs, B/w TVs, Kodak films rolls,Polaroid cameras going out of use

Caused by -

#GlobalAutoInc announces over 37,000 jobs cut in first three months of 2019

Auto majors like #GM, #Ford & #Volkswagen took the lead in terms of jobs cut

Declining auto sales led by global trade war, #Brexit & #EVs

But we will blame @narendramodi

1/9 I have purchased a car very recently. So, I went through the usual motions of a large and involved purchase at the time of my decision. This might also give you an insight into the auto sector slowdown #AutoSector #SlowDown #Economyslowdown #economy
2/9 Clean fuel vehicles are coming: Hydrogen fuel cell, & #ElectricVehicles (#BEV & #PHEV) are coming sooner than we thought. Govt envisions an electric mobility future for us & is taking a lot of steps to push EVs under #FAME2 scheme. To reduce pollution & fuel import bill.
3/9 If I buy a regular petrol/diesel car, it may get obsolete sooner than I imagined. Eg: NCR banned 10yr old #diesel vehicles to improve air quality, push towards electric. All this affects resale value of the #cars. Hence, I considered pushing the life of my current car

@siddisimple @acorn This is not about a slowdown, it's about disruptive technologies and their impact. "Businesses designed to succeed in the 20th century are doomed to fail in the 21st." @davidsrose
Automotive sector will face massive disruption. #electricvehicles #AutonomousVehicles
@siddisimple @acorn @davidsrose See our paper on the future of personal mobility. It's already playing out like we thought it would. #disruption slideshare.net/mobile/Ideafar… @TKspeaks
@siddisimple @acorn @davidsrose @TKspeaks What you think a slowdown is actually the end of an era. An era of the scarcity mindset. An era of asymmetry of information. An era of inequity. Now, as @PeterDiamandis says, we are in the age of #abundance, marked by the 6Ds

Great introduction given by @jaume_mateu, let’s enjoy!
#publictransport #sustainablemobility
New Regional Master Plan in the #BalearicIslands is willing to overturn #transportation planning from traffic to #mobility management.
"If you plan cities for cars and traffic, you get cars and traffic. If you plan for people and places, you get people and places". Fred Kent.
The last 16 years of planning and transportation management has been nearly useless to reduce private motorized vehicle trips mode share. It's time to change if we want to keep living on this precious islands.
Push and pull policies need to be implemented in the short term.
