million heavy vehicles. Electric vehicles would become available in 2010 and
increase to 14.2 million vehicles per year by 2020.
The electric vehicles would use 2,900
kilowatt-hours for passenger cars. People could charge their electric
vehicles at home or where they work. At $0.10 per kilowatt-hour, the
passenger car could travel 200 miles and be recharged for $5.30 or about
$320 per year..
Although the prices have not been made public.
If the cost was $20,000 plus for passenger cars, $30,000 plus SUV &
Pickups and $500,000 plus for Heavy vehicles, the annual sales in 2020 are
estimated at $1 trillion.
Regarding infrastructure, over 300 billion
kilowatt-hours of existing off-peak power is available to supply about 90 million vehicles.
Additional electrical power plants will be need unless energy conservation
measures reduce the demand for electricity.
