Electric vehicles used to be and still are substantially more expensive than ICE vehicles. With sales volumes rising and fast progressing industrialisation of battery pack manufacturing, price parity could be reached by the early to mid 2020s.
A few years ago, Accilium were searching for ways to offset the higher TCOs of EVs by bundling use cases such as alternative and second use of the EV battery pack. Despite the disappearing TCO gap, these use cases become increasingly more interesting in a world where transport shifts to mobility as a service offerings and platform economies take over the classic pipeline economy.
In their eVisions they describe scenarios, where these trends converge, borders between the utility and automotive industry start to blur and enable novel collaboration models.
