Top Trends and Developments in the E-Mobility Services Industry


E-mobility services are gaining prominence across the globe due to the rising level of pollution and the shift towards greener alternatives. Many countries are taking steps toward ensuring environmental sustainability. To meet sustainable development goals, the adoption of e-mobility services and electric vehicles is expected to increase in the coming years as well. These services are mainly offered by transport providers although several automotive OEM and EV manufacturers have also arrived in the industry. The major trends and developments are highlighted in this blog.

Let us have a look at the top trends in the e-mobility services industry. 

Top Trends in The Industry

  • Rising Sales of EVs Across the Globe

According to the International Energy Agency, the number of electric cars, buses, vans, and heavy trucks on roads is expected to hit 145 million by 2030. It also states that roughly three million new electric cars were registered in 2020. The sales of electric vehicles had increased rapidly due to the high prices of fossil fuels and rising awareness related to environmental pollution. These factors contribute significantly to the growth of the e-mobility services market. Also, rising government initiatives for the development of EV infrastructure are crucial to the development of the market.

In March 2022, the Canadian government announced funding of USD 400 million for zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) charging stations. Also, the Canadian Infrastructure Bank also announced the investment of USD 500 million in ZEV charging and constructing EV infrastructure.

  • Increasing Adoption of Electric Micro-Mobility

The ongoing trend for the adoption of electric micro-mobility is expected to thrive in the long term. Owing to extensive social distancing guidelines, disrupted public transport worldwide, and higher awareness regarding environmental concerns and personal hygiene during the Covid-19 pandemic, consumers preferred electrical micro-mobility products such as e-scooters, electric bikes, and others over public transportation for a short distance. Governments across the globe are also promoting the adoption of electric micro-mobility to fight climate change and become carbon neutral.

In October 2022, NIU launched its new kick scooter named as the KQi3 Max. It gives a top speed of 20 mph, and has a 40.4-mile range. This kick scooter offers maximum performance, comfort, and stability that help in urban micro-mobility.

  • Arrival of Automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in E-Mobility Business

One of the key trends in the market is the increasing involvement of several automobile manufacturers in the shared mobility business. In 2018, Toyota Motors made an announcement at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to enter the shared mobility business. Furthermore, the company was working toward the introduction of the Autono-MaaS service, a mobility service that would be provided via self-driving EV. Also, in October 2022, Erisha E Mobility launched three new L5 category electric vehicles. The company claimed that these vehicles are equipped with a 51.2V Li-ion battery that offers a driving range of 120-140 km in a single charge.
