I will explain the trends in the international electric vehicle market and policies. During the COVID-19 Era, a rapid EV shift occurred mainly in Europe, and growth was also seen in China and Korea, which exceeded that of Japan. Japan was a technologically and market-leading country in electric and fuel cell vehicles but is currently being chased and overtaken. Decarbonization of electricity is important to achieve greenhouse gas reduction through the spread of electric vehicles. Unlike countries such as Norway and France, where decarbonized power sources exceed 90%, in Asian countries such as Japan, China, and Korea, the proportion of coal and LNG thermal power is still high, and the greenhouse gas reduction effect of electric vehicles is limited. This is an opportunity for everyone to exchange opinions on the outlook for the global EV shift while keeping in mind the latest situation and focusing on the social cost of automobiles.
