Electric vehicles (EVs) are set to dominate our roads in the coming decades, with many countries intending to ban the sale of new internal combustion engine (ICE) cars by 2035 including the UK, China, Japan and most of Europe, as well as several US states.
Already demand for plug-in cars is surging. The International Energy Agency expects 14 million to be sold worldwide this year, representing 18 per cent of the overall car market – up from just four per cent in 2020.
May's Dezeen in Depth also features an opinion piece from Rob Bevan on the cultural and political implications of King Charles III's love for traditional architecture and an exclusive interview with 2023 Venice Architecture Biennale curator Lesley Lokko.
