World EV Day: Will we be ready for the EV transition?

Today is World EV Day, celebrating sustainable e-mobility!

The UK is preparing for the ban of new sales of petrol and diesel vehicles in 2030. But will we be ready for this switch?

The rEV Index, produced by The Economist Group and sponsored by bp, explores where we stand today and how we can best prepare ourselves for the transition tomorrow. I am the project director of the index, which will be released next month, but we already have a few exciting teasers.

What are the key challenges in the EV transition and where do we go from here? Watch video interviews with three industry experts:

• Roland Ferwerda, Director, Qurato; and National Knowledge Platform for Charging Infrastructure, Netherlands
• Mike Hawes, Chief Executive, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders
• Melanie Shufflebotham, Co-Founder & COO, Zap-Map

Read a blog on why we need equitable access to EV charging from Chris Cox, head of Energy Systems & Infrastructure, Cenex.
