Many observers predict that the global transition to electric cars will take place much sooner than expected. Now the BBC is also joining the fray. “What makes the end of the internal combustion engine inevitable is a technological revolution. And technological revolutions tend to happen very quickly … [and] this revolution will be electric, ”reports Justin Rowlett of the BBC.

Rowlett cites the Internet revolution of the late 90s as an example. “For those who had not yet logged in [to the internet] it all sounded exciting and interesting but unimportant – how useful can computer communication be? After all, we have phones! But the Internet, like all successful new technologies, has not followed a linear path to global domination … Its growth has been explosive and disruptive, ”Rowlett notes.

So how quickly will electric cars become mainstream? “The response is very quick. Like the internet in the 90s, the electric car market is already growing exponentially. Global sales of electric cars surged in 2020, increasing 43% to a total of 3.2 million, despite an overall drop in car sales of a fifth during the coronavirus pandemic, ”reports the BBC.

According to Rowlett, “We are in the midst of the biggest automotive revolution since Henry Ford’s first production line began to run back in 1913.”

Want more proof? “The world’s major automakers think [so]… General Motors says it will only manufacture electric vehicles by 2035, Ford says all vehicles sold in Europe will be electric by 2030, and VW says 70% of its sales will be electric by 2030. “

And the luxury automakers of the world are also get into the action: “Jaguar plans to sell only electric cars from 2025, Volvo from 2030 and [recently] British sports car company Lotus has said it will follow suit, selling only electric models from 2028. “

Rowlett spoke to former Top Gear host Quentin Wilson to get his take on the electric revolution. Once a critic of electric cars, Wilson adores his new Tesla Model 3 noting, “It’s extremely comfortable, it’s airy, it’s bright. It’s just a total joy. And I would tell you unequivocally now that I would never stay there again. “
