Visitor: I'm looking for some projections on EV and BEV ownership for the next 10 to 50 years. A graph or some kind of visual aid is ideal. I've checked around the 'Net and haven't found anything like this, just quotes. Would you have any source or reference I could go to for such a visual aid?
EOW: I doubt you will find such projections. The only thing stopping the growth of EV's right now is the limitations and affordability of batteries in reference to speed and distance. Different types of battery technology are going to be introduced in the near future to counter this major roadblock. Until then all realistic projections are not possible. Maybe look into hybrid projections. This you might be able to find. Hybrid projections will probably give you an idea of future EV and BEV projections.
