Electric vehicles of all types, shapes and sizes are finding their way to European roads and currently make up 0.34% of the European car market. However, the adoption of EVs has not gone as fast as initially hoped. The main reasons for this are

  • Cost: the price of the battery pack greatly influences the price of electric vehicles
  • Reliability and safety: because batteries age and unsafe use might lead to thermal runaway
