While there are only 1,500,000 EVs in the world today, more than 50% were sold in 2015. With significant decreases in upfront costs predicted over the next 5 to 10 years, in addition to superior performance, and substantially lower running and servicing/maintenance costs than their diesel/petrol counterparts, Electric Vehicles are expected to quickly dominate the market.
In fact, by 2020, 102,000 brand new EVs will be purchased every year, making up to 10% of market. This uptake will increase the need for highly efficient, cost effective and safe EV Chargers, from suppliers like JET Charge. Given this expected rate of EV uptake in Australia, it won’t be long before one of your tenants requests an on-site EV charger.
