Electric vehicles are suddenly hot − but the industry has traveled a long road to relevance

In some parts of the world, such as Norway, the percentage was a whopping 20%.

Key Points: 
  • In some parts of the world, such as Norway, the percentage was a whopping 20%.
  • In California, where I live, almost 60% of people looking for a car in 2021 said they would at least consider getting an EV.
  • The key word here is “seemingly.” And the answer reveals an interesting history that most people are completely unaware of.
  • When I ask students, “How long have EVs been commercially available?” most of them will answer five years, or 10, perhaps 20.

Electric vehicles and the long road to adoption

  • Most people don’t know that they’ve been commercially available since as far back as the 1890s.
  • Yes, that’s how long it’s been since that battle was first fought.
  • Almost 40% of vehicles on the road in the early 1900s were electric.

The ‘cool factor’ − but so much more

  • And they’re right: The Tesla Roadster did make EVs cool – if expensive, at over US$100,000 dollars at its launch in 2008.
  • But there are many more factors that explain the rise in demand and, more importantly, broad adoption of EVs.
  • One reason for the rise in demand starting in about 2010 is better and more widely available charging infrastructure.

Technology adoption: It takes a village − and time

  • Technology adoption is influenced by what’s known as “peer effects” – the desire to compare oneself with others.
  • The same is true, for instance, of solar panel adoption, another technology that, like EVs, has both personal and social benefits.
  • Technology comes from the Greek word “techne,” which means a practice, a set of habits and a way to accomplish a goal.
  • Without this alignment, new tech will sit on a shelf for a long time but never succeed – like EVs almost did.
