It's electric! Petrol vehicles could go off roads in 8 years

Big auto and big oil will be hit as e-cars rule: Study

We've been told that electric cars and self-driving vehicles are the future of transport. But they could be here sooner than we think. Petrol cars, trucks and buses will be driven off the roads within eight years, says a new study by Stanford University.

 

That's because electric vehicles will be cheaper to operate and improvements in technology will ensure they run longer - for 400 kilometres on a single battery charge. Car dealerships and petrol stations are expected to disappear by 2024, according to the study by Stanford economist Tony Seba.

These vehicles will be more reliable and efficient, and would be able to drive 500,000 to a  million miles during their lifetimes. Seba says people will stop driving altogether and those holding on to their petrol cars will find it hard to sell them.

 

The tipping point is close, very close, when prices of electric cars begin to fall and e-car batteries last longer than 200 miles.

The UAE and other countries have already seen this disruption coming. Last week, the Ministry of Energy launched a programme to encourage motorists to use electric vehicles. Government department vehicles also plan to shift to 20 per cent electric by 2020.

 

Tesla motors founder Elon Musk signed a deal with Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority for 200 electric cars in February as the company makes a big push into the country with its green vehicles.

 

Dubai has already rolled out its Smart Autonomous Mobility Strategy which will make 25 per cent of total journeys autonomous by 2030. As part of this strategy, government institutions must purchase 10 per cent hybrid or electric vehicles.
