Rolton Group coverage on The Engineer
Peter Rolton, chairman of engineering consultancy Rolton Group, explores the evolving electric vehicle landscape and the challenges that lie on the road ahead. It’s no secret that electric vehicles are set to be the next game changer in the automotive sector. EVs are now an everyday reality on our roads, and innovations in this fast-moving sector are constantly hitting the headlines; take for example charging provider PODPoint’s latest £9m investment programme, or the announcements of all-electric hypercars at the Geneva Motor Show. But electric vehicles are more than just the latest automotive evolution. Their rapid emergence from concept into the world of everyday transport has far-reaching implications, particularly in the areas of environmental impact and changes in our energy production and consumption.
