Battery Improvements Are Driving Electric Vehicle Adoption

The adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States has surged in recent years, now accounting for 7% of new car sales compared to a decade ago. A study by Yale School of the Environment and Carnegie Mellon University reveals that this increase is primarily driven by technological advancements rather than major shifts in consumer preferences. Factors such as improved battery range, faster charging, lower prices, and reduced operating costs have made EVs more appealing. The study suggests that EVs capable of traveling 300+ miles per charge are as attractive as gasoline-powered cars. With the introduction of over 100 new EV models in the coming years, the researchers forecast that EVs could make up 40-60% of new car and SUV sales by 2030. These findings provide policymakers with insights for ambitious goals, such as proposed regulations to achieve two-thirds of new vehicle sales being EVs by 2032. Manufacturers, such as GM and Lexus, have already responded to market shifts by committing to sell exclusively EVs by 2035.

        Indeed, EVs capable of traveling 300+ miles per charge are as attractive as gasoline-powered cars.
