The Europe electric car market is projected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 12% during 2023-2028. The growing utilization to reduce noise and environmental pollution, increasing consumer awareness about environmental sustainability and safety, and rising number of infrastructure development facilities, such as charging stations and fast-charging networks, represent some of the key factors driving the market.
An electric car, also known as an electric vehicle (EV), is an automobile that utilizes one or more electric motors for propulsion. It relies on rechargeable batteries, mainly lithium-ion, to store electricity and power the vehicle. It comprises various components, such as a battery pack, electric motors, inverters and converters, on-board charger, thermal management system, vehicle battery management system, regenerative braking system, and infotainment and control systems. It is usually manufactured using lightweight materials, such as aluminum, steel, carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP), magnesium alloys, and polymers and plastics. It offers convenience, cost-effectiveness, maneuverability, energy efficiency, and environmental friendliness. It requires lower maintenance as compared to traditional internal combustion engines (ICE) and benefits in reducing environmental and noise pollution while decreasing reliance on fossil fuels. It also provides instantaneous torque and smooth acceleration and enhances the overall driving experience of individuals. As it has the ability to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve air quality, promoting a sustainable and greener environment, the demand for electric car is rising in Europe.
