Sister Mumu: Sales of electric vehicles will grow exponentially
On February 2, "Sister Wood" Cathie Wood's Ark Invest released the "Big Ideas 2023" annual investment research report, which summarized the latest trends in the integration of innovative technologies in the world.
Today we take a look at what's in it about electric vehicles.
The first is batteries. According to Wright’s law, the cost of battery cells will drop by 28% every time the number of units produced is doubled. This relationship will exist for a long time; lower-cost lithium iron phosphate cells will become the mainstream.
The other is the charging speed. ARK believes that the charging speed is a good indicator to measure the overall performance of electric vehicles, which can explain the operating efficiency, range, and capabilities of the system.
In the past four years, the charging speed of electric vehicles has almost tripled. But if the charging speed reaches an acceptable level, car companies will devote more resources to autonomous driving, safety and entertainment.
ARK believes that as production costs fall, sales of electric vehicles will grow exponentially, while internal combustion engine vehicles could lose significant market share. The agency predicts that electric vehicles will account for 60 percent of the market by 2027.
