New report Electric Vehicles for Military, Security & Police 2011-2021

The latest IDTechEx report concerns electric vehicles for military, security and police duty. Even excluding regular hybrid and pure electric cars minimally modified for such use and the excluding the huge development contracts, the IDTechEx projections show a strongly rising market. It becomes around 15% of the total electric vehicle market by value in 2021, primarily due to the high prices attracted by the specialist constructions for land, sea and air use that are involved.

Electric Vehicles - But Not As We Know Them

Electric Vehicles - But Not As We Know Them

Today's electric family cars are useless in telling us anything about the future. The design and adoption of electric vehicles is subject to sudden change driven by surprising factors. The unique event "Electric Vehicles - Land Sea Air" in Stuttgart, Germany is alone in looking at the big picture in order to clarify what is really going on.

Global benchmarking for e-mobility at last

Global benchmarking for e-mobility at last

Best practice in e-mobility first occurs in very different countries and with very different vehicles. The most useful events on the subject therefore need an international speaker lineup. Indeed, they must cover much more than on-road vehicles and the rather narrow electromobility programs of governments that tend to focus on cars, with some effort on other on-road vehicles and little else.

More on 2nd vs 3rd Generation Range Extenders

There is no doubt that hybrid electric vehicles by land sea and air are transitioning from having small traction batteries and near useless all electric range of about 15 miles to something nearer to market needs. In prospect is all-electric plug-in range as good or better than today's affordable pure electric land, sea and air vehicles at 100 miles or so (162 km) and use of on-board range extenders that give a total plug-in powered plus on-board energy range that even exceeds that of most of today's conventional vehicles.

The China car dead end

China cannot widely adopt cars. We all aspire to have a car because they are sociable and offer great freedom of movement. However, as the IDTechEx sums below show, they are the worst form of transport in energy used per passenger travelling distance whether electric or not.
