In the next few weeks, power consumption for electric vehicles will peak at 6,500 kWh per vehicle, compared with 5,000 kWh per electric vehicle now, according to the Electric Vehicle Association.
The group has also said that it expects EVs to reach 60% of new vehicle sales by 2040, a higher level than the U.S. fleet has ever achieved.
It said it is “likely” that EVs will be on a path to become 50% of all electric vehicles by 2060.
The group says that the new EV standards could result in a reduction in energy consumption of about 40% by 2025.
The company’s new Powerwall Energi EV, for example, can charge an EV at up to 3,000 kwh per month and has a battery pack that can store about 15 kWh.
“The electric vehicle fleet will grow by almost a third, from about 1.5 million EVs to 2.3 million EVs by 2030, which is expected to be a 30% increase in electric vehicle range, an 80% increase over the current fleet,” the group wrote in its report.
In its presentation, Powerwall said that EVs are an “essential component” of a sustainable future.
But while the group says it expects the EV market to be dominated by EVs, it does not say that EVs can replace the gasoline economy.
Its report said that “in many cases, the combination of EVs and other fuels is not the only option” for a cleaner vehicle.
If the new standards do not come to fruition, the group said it will seek regulatory changes that will allow EVs to be used on public roads.
