Rolton Group coverage on The Engineer
In a follow-up to his recent piece on EVs, Peter Rolton, chairman of engineering consultancy Rolton Group, explores the benefits to businesses joining the electric vehicle revolution and the challenges that come with it. The timeframe in which electric vehicles are expected to dominate our roads is not far off – it’s predicted that by 2050 electric vehicles will have utterly saturated the passenger vehicle fleet. In fact, the number of newly registered full electric or hybrid EVs in the UK has risen well over 20-fold over the past three years alone, according to The Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders. The pace shows no sign of slowing, with increased choice from car manufacturers, improved technology, growing consumer demand and government incentives all playing a part in their uptake.
