  • China is the largest market for the Asia-pacific region, and it is the forerunner in the electric vehicle market as the country's regulations and planning keep it ahead of any other country in the world. For instance, in February 2021, Individual electric vehicle consumption increased to nearly 70% 2020 from 20% two years ago. Electric vehicle sales accounted for about 60% of cities without a limit on vehicle increment, which showed there is still a large room for increasing electric vehicle sales in China during the forecasted period.
  • Many European governments are incentivizing consumers to opt for electric mobility, each with its own schemes. Also, the government and companies in the private sector are jointly focusing on battery electric vehicles and using eco-friendly transport. Germany is the home of major automakers, is a forerunner in terms of electric vehicle adoption for both commercial and passenger usage.
  • Truck manufacturers, such as Daimler and Navistar International Corp. are racing to overcome the challenges of replacing diesel engines with batteries, as international organizations have been improving and implementing stringent exhaust emissions and fuel economy norms. As a result, commercial vehicle manufacturers and logistics companies are manufacturing their battery-based commercial vehicles.
  • For instance, in September 2022, the new logistics facility for the Spartanburg manufacturing facility, which BMW Manufacturing formally opened on Freeman Farm Road, showcased a more technologically advanced, environmentally friendly, and productive business model. The recently constructed LCX, or Logistics Center for X models, is around one million square feet large and costs nearly USD 100 million. There are presently five plug-in hybrid electric BMW X models, four Motorsport X models, and two X models. The all-new BMW XM, the first electrified high-performance hybrid car in the BMW M series, started production in late 2022.
