EVs and the global petroleum economy

Post by timbray » Thu Jan 10, 2019 7:47 pm

I ran across a publication called “Oil Fall” that is focused on the global energy economy, and specifically predicts that global demand for petroleum is about to peak and start drifting down, and that electric vehicles are a key piece of the equation. One particularly telling statistic is that total car sales fell in 2018, shocking everyone, but at the same time electric vehicle sales surged, to 1.2M cars and 7% of new sales by year end.

Anyhow, if you want to read Oil Fail it'll cost you $9, but I gave an overview with some links in a blog piece: https://www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/201x ... 6/Oil-Fail

It might be of interest to those who are interested enough to be reading these pages.

One of the reason that explain why electric vehicles are a key piece of the strategy is Tesla pricing strategy :
