Recently, We replaced a company car.
We promote solar power generation.
Therefore, we decided not to have a conventional gasoline-powered vehicle, but to own an electric-based EV car (electric car).
Ever since a while ago, it was an image that there is no power for EV, there is a problem with long distance traveling,
but in recent years the technology of any automobile manufacturer has made a remarkable leap and it is inevitable
for conventional gasoline engine cars It is.
In the background the car manufacturers to focus on technology improvement of the electrical system automobile Up to this point,
there seems to be the promotion of EV, which has been promoted in Europe.
This year, in June the French government banned sales of gasoline and diesel vehicles in 2040 and showed a policy to aim for the spread of EV vehicles.
This trend is not limited to France, and even in the UK, as in France in 2040 the same policy of banning sales of gasoline · diesel company was raised.
In addition, the Chinese government seems to introduce an environmental regulation that obliges automakers to produce
and sell a certain number of EV vehicles in 2018,
It seems that regulations that obligate a certain amount of sales of EV vehicles in India are also strengthened.
Apparently the transition to this EV vehicle seems to accelerate globally.
Even at the manufacturer, VOLVO of Sweden promptly announces that all sales models after 2019 will be transferred to electric vehicles.
Germany’s Volkswagen, who disagreed with the French announcement, also seems to have planned to supply 30 million 3 EVs by 2025,
following this trend.
Although Japanese manufacturers also rush to respond quickly, because the focus is on HV (hybrid) cars,
if the response is delayed, it will be the same fate as Garakae, so Toyota plans to make gasoline vehicles almost zero in 2050 It seems to be.
However, in the United States, actually it is stopping EV spread.
As the EV venture company Tesla gets a lot of attention from all over the world,
whether the automobile industry BIG 3 (Big Three) has a rebound or pressure,
whether the subsidies for EV cars in the government or the state are reduced or abolished,
the abolition of preferential taxation The movement is accelerating.
I do not know whether it is the influence of the President who promised to secure employment of Big Three.
In any case, the wave of innovation in the automobile has certainly visited.
It is a memorable new fact that Japanese electric manufacturers missed the waves of smaho and ran away.
I hope the industry engaged in automobile manufacturers and automobiles
will do their best not to lose sight of the trend of the times by taking advantage of this lesson. .
