The future of the electric vehicle industry – Critical analysis of discourses regarding the decrease in battery prices and its impact on the EV market

In recent years, electric vehicles have been promoted as the keystone of a transition towards a cleaner mobility. Prospective studies tend to start from the premise that this motorisation will generalise in the future ; this diffusion of Evs can only be allowed by a stark decrease in battery prices, which is expected to happen in the following 5 to 10 years. However, reports discussing this mass diffusion of EVs tend to lack transparency on the mecanisms that would lead to the decrease in battery prices. The goal of this study is to critically analyse these discourse and evaluate (i) the veracity of their time horizons ; (ii) the market that would first be affected. To do so, we will use a thorough literature review as well as expert interviews, the goal being to revisit universally quoted premises and, if need be, re-evaluate them.
