The lower emission rates during the lockout of the coronavirus could increase customer interest in electric vehicles.
The explanation for this is clear-people saw better air quality and quiet and can feel physically that electric vehicles will really have a significant effect on the world around them.
Of course, we must note that as traffic returns, as the complete transition from ICE to EVs is a long way off, the emissions will be still. In the best-case scenario, when up to 100% of new cars have zero emissions, it would still take years to replace all the old vehicles
A significant and honestly optimistic finding is that more people have opted to go walking or cycling, rather than use any vehicle.
The plug-in electric share went through the roof in April 2020, largely due to the weak ICE prices, and the Tesla Model 3 became the top model, irrespective of the powertrain.
