The advent of electric vehicles (EVs) is one of the most revolutionary changes to take place in the history of transport. The take-up of electric vehicles will transform not only driving habits and energy usage, but also supply chains, industries and physical infrastructure across the world.
This report, which concentrates on market and regulatory developments relating to electric vehicle batteries, is the third in a series of Linklaters reports covering the future of cars. Previous reports in this series have covered the impact of autonomous vehicles on infrastructure investment opportunities, and the implications of data laws on the use of "shadow mode" in autonomous vehicles.
