    “…16 percent of new light-duty passenger vehicles sold in the U.S., China, and the European Union in 2020 will have to be plug-in electrified vehicles (PEVs) to meet their strict fuel economy standards…[and] selling more fuel-efficient gas engine vehicles won’t be enough to meet emissions-reduction targets in the world’s three largest car markets…[ E-Mobility: Closing the Emissions Gap concluded] that mandates like California’s zero emission vehicle rules won’t meet this goal and several countries with strict fuel economy and emissions standards] haven’t mandated that electric cars be sold to meet them…[China has] the largest PEV sales volume to fill…[It will need to sell] 5.3 million electric cars (22 percent of predicted 2020 sales)…[The U.S. will need to sell 0.9 million cars (11 percent of its 2020 market). The European Union countries will need to sell 1.4 million units (10 percent of new car sales)]…[E]lectric utilities will need to gear up to serve the increased energy demand. If new vehicle sales come up to one-in-six by 2020, increased demand will go way beyond the 0.5 percent of total electricity consumed by PEVs in the three markets…” click here for more
