As many governments around the world work to address mounting concerns over climate change, electric vehicles (EV) can contribute to the long-term solution by helping to cut the transportation sector’s heavy carbon emissions. As emerging markets (EM) develop, their CO2 emissions are poised to rise precipitously, underscoring the need for electric cars to help address this daunting challenge.
China, the world’s most populous country and the second largest economy, has taken a lead role in electric vehicle development among emerging markets and globally, but how do we expect key markets such as India to develop? How can electric vehicles evolve in other emerging market countries?
