It’s been another strong year for the electric vehicles industry which saw multiple launches from global auto manufacturers. Two of the newest arrivals hit the market just last month when Ford Motor unveiled its all-electric crossover SUV Mustang Mach-E, mounting a challenge to Tesla which also rolled out its much-hyped electric pickup truck in a bid to expand its EV offerings and consolidate its market dominance.

With old-guard automakers joining the frenzy over battery-powered vehicles, the forecast for the global EV market has never been brighter. By 2030, battery-powered electric vehicles will account for one out of every five cars (20%) sold, says Morningstar equity analyst Seth Goldstein. Part of that growth is fuelled by the rapidly falling battery prices. In fact, both the price and performance of EVs are projected to reach parity with conventional vehicles by 2025.
