What's next for electric vehicles in 2024?

Speaker 1: 2024 is shaping up to be the year we finally figure out this whole charging our electric cars thing, and it’s not too soon. Today we have more options than ever of what I consider good electric vehicles, the kind of cars with good reliability and more than enough range for daily city driving. But according to a 2023 study by JD Power Electric Car, charging for longer trips is one of the biggest concerns for potential EV users and the EV-curious, but that could be about to change. Speaker 1: Throughout 2023, (00:00:30) we saw a wave of automakers adopting the newly inaugurated North American charging standard, also known as max, ak, a, the Tesla plug, with car manufacturers Established cars like Ford, Hyundai, Kia and BMW, as well as startups like Rivian and Lucid. Right now, only the Volkswagen Group and Stellantis are the only ones holding out on the party, but I have a feeling we’ll hear something from them at some point in the future. Now, if you paid as much attention to these ads as I did, you’ll notice that almost all automakers have identical timelines (00:01:00) and there’s a good reason for that. You see, in 2024, we’ll start to see the launch of CCS to N adapters, and that’s to give Tesla time to increase its charging standards to accommodate all this new third-party traffic. And then in 2025 and beyond, we’ll start to see the first native third-party vehicles hitting dealerships. Now, does this mean that CCS is dead in the United States? Probably not. There are still millions of electric cars on the roads today and they’re not going anywhere, and there will be more CCS-equipped electric cars (00:01:30) in 20 25, 20 26 and beyond. However, the widespread availability of fairly inexpensive CCS to NAX and N adapters are CCS adapters that you can keep in your truck for the day you need them. It means that for all EV drivers, there will be more choice and more compatibility when it comes to where to charge your car. Speaker 1: Speaking of where to charge your car, if all goes according to plan, 2024 will be the year we see a boom in electric vehicle charging stations. To begin with, this year we will see the first fruits of that National Electric 2021 vehicle infrastructure plan begin to ripen (00:02:00). This is a $5 billion investment to build electric vehicle charging stations every 50 miles along major interstates and highways in North America. And the first of those DC fast charging stations will begin rolling out early this year. Meanwhile, seven major automakers are collaborating on a mega network of DC fast charging stations with NAX and CCS charging ports. Over time, this will increase to around 30,000 stations by 2025. And the first (00:02:30) of those stations is launching, you guessed it. This year 2024, even gas stations are joining the fight. BP announced that it will buy $100 million worth of chargers from Tesla for its BP Pulse Station. Speaker 1: Bucky’s is partnering with Mercedes-Benz. Pilot will join GM and Travel Center will work with Electrified America to add thousands of DC charging points to hundreds of nearby gas stations. And as an added bonus, all of these networks that are deployed with federal OEM funding and private funding use (00:03:00) TAP to pay with your credit card so you don’t have to keep another app on your phone. to pay for charging your electric vehicle. And of course, 2024 will see the arrival of plenty of highly anticipated electric cars to choose from, including Chevrolet’s Blazer. EV is hitting the road now and, while I’ll miss the affordable and compact bolt, the Blazer in particular is a, hence the machine with a dizzying array of configurations, including front-, rear- and all-wheel drive variants for its electric Ultium. powertrain, which will also power GM’s Equinox (00:03:30), Honda Prologue and Acura VVX. Speaker 1: Volvo is set to slide into the affordable EV space with a bang in 2024, debuting the EX 30 starting at around $36,000. The compact electric SUV promises around 270 miles of range, but if you tick the right boxes, the Twin Motor EX 30 will hit 60 seconds in three and a half seconds and you’ll earn it. The title of the fastest production Volvo of all time. For those looking for a big, angular electric vehicle, (00:04:00) there’s the Kia EV nine, which expands Hyundai Motor Group’s electric vehicle platform to its largest configuration. However, the three-row SUV promises up to 300 miles of range when it hits the road in early 2024 with a balance of value, technology and quality that we expect from its sibling, the Kia EV six, more charging stations and more places. convenient, with more compatibility and of course, more electric cars to choose from. 2024 is shaping up to be a very interesting year in the electrification (00:04:30) of American roads.
