Impact Analysis of COVID-19 on the Electric vehicle Market

The global market for electric vehicle is estimated to experience a negative impact amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The growth is declining amidst the pandemic times due to supply chain disruptions, closure of manufacturing units, shortage of labors, and import-export restrictions. In addition, the social distancing measures imposed across various countries to curb the pandemic has brought challenges to the electric vehicle distribution channels and it is pushing manufacturers to develop online selling platforms. The falling crude oil prices, economic crisis with more focus on cash saving have reduced the adoption of electric vehicles. China is the leading exporter of electric vehicle components to the world and disrupted supply chain has negatively impact the export due to nation-wide lockdown. In addition, growing trade tensions between China and other countries is causing decline in electric vehicle demand. In addition, shift in consumer preferences towards cash saving many affect the investment and production in electric vehicle industry. All these factors have greatly affected the electric vehicle market.

Various initiatives have been taken by the government, key vendors, and others to support the electric vehicle manufacturers amidst the pandemic. For instance, BMW India has introduced contactless experience in April 2020, that enables customers to explore and buy new BMW cars, book vehicle service, and make secure payments online on a single click using Furthermore, the stimulus packages in Europe have attracted large number of customers towards the purchase of electric vehicles. For instance, Germany provides a subsidy of $11,200 for electric vehicles and France offers a subsidy of $14,170 including $5,900 scrappage scheme for old cars. In addition, in April 2020, Toyota Group, the largest auto maker, has begun the full-scale production of medical face shields and started expanding its production from 500-600 face shield units per week to 40,000 units per month. Also, the company plans to further expand the in-house production to 70,000 units per month. These factors are estimated to create lucrative investment opportunities during the forecast period.

Global Electric Vehicle Market Analysis

The enormous growth of the global electric vehicle market is mainly attributed to stringent government regulations towards vehicle emissions and high demand for fuel-efficient, low-emission, and high-performance vehicles. The electric vehicle reduces the eliminates the fuel cost as the fuel prices are increasing rapidly. The electric vehicles run on electric motor and the cost of electricity can be reduced further by installing rooftop solar installation to charge the electric vehicle. Electric vehicles reduce the car emissions and helps the environment as they do not release harmful greenhouse gases that leads to air pollution. Electric cars provide instant torque that facilitates responsive & high acceleration. In addition, the electric cars feature regenerative braking in which the energy produced by applying brakes is used to charge the electric vehicle. Several countries have imposed strict regulations on the vehicle emission. For instance, the U.S. has imposed US Federal emission standards for engines and vehicles that includes the emission guidelines for greenhouse gas emissions, established by US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which is the independent agency of the U.S. that works for the environmental protection. All these aspects are predicted to create a positive impact on the electric vehicle market growth during the forecast period.

The electric vehicles have shorter range compared to the gas-powered cars and auto makers are finding more ways to make electric cars suitable for long distance travel.
