The Importance of the Ignition System in Reaching Greener Mobility


#1

Although the number of newly-registered electric cars hit a record in 2016 with around 750,000 units worldwide, electric vehicles (EVs) still represent roughly only 1% of new light vehicles sales [1], far below the forecasts done in the past [2]-[6]. Over the next five years, we expect to see an increase in the share of EVs but by 2022, approximately 88% of the cars would still be powered exclusively by an internal combustion engine, and another 10% would be hybrid, containing both electric and combustion drive train [7].
