EV-volumes.com - How it all started

Roland's challenge: Accustomed with a 20 years career as a market and technology expert in the automotive industry at different OEMs, my passion and expertise in the market could be shared with anyone via EV-volumes.com. Access to high quality market facts is hard to find. The emerging EV market is very dynamic and interest in good statistics is growing, and EV-volumes is where I can share my knowledge, passion and expertise.

José's mission: Being the best sales tracker of plug-in vehicle sales all over the world, EV-volumes is how I can benefit from my expertise: "When I started this, there were about 5 models on sale in 10 markets, now it's 80 models in over 40 markets. It starts to become a full-time job". An immense community of readers and supporters regularly follows my blog and EV-volumes is the natural path in this growing work.

Viktor's venture:  Studying a M.Sc. in Management & Economics of Innovation from Chalmers University of Technology, analyzing emerging markets and market disruptions from new innovations is my expertise. Being passionate about automobiles and especially electric engines and clean technology, EV-volumes.com is the natural outcome of my set of skills. I am convinced the automotive future history is both electric and autonomous.

EV-volumes.com is the result of our combined efforts. With a passion for EVs and a sense for facts & figures, we get you global EV information at your fingertips.
