How EV Adoption Will Impact Oil Consumption

As the world progresses towards the electrification of the transportation sector, the oil demand will be replaced by the demand for electricity.

To highlight the EV impact on oil consumption, the infographic created by BloombergNEF reveals how much oil has been and will be saved every day between 2015 and 2025 by varying electric vehicle types.

How EV Adoption Will Impact Oil Consumption

A typical combustion engine passenger vehicle in the United States uses about 11 barrels (1749 liters) of oil equivalent. A motorcycle uses 1 (159 liters), a Class 8 truck about 24 (3975 liters), and a bus uses more than 258 barrels (41019 liters) per year.

When cars switch to electric engines, they no longer require oil, making electricity their source of power instead.

Most of the oil saved from EVs on a global scale has come from two- and three-wheeled vehicles, such as motorcycles, scooters, and mopeds. With a wide adoption in Asia, notably, these vehicles displaced the demand for almost 675,000 barrels (107,316,424 liters)of oil per day in 2015. By 2021, this number had quickly grown to 1 million barrels (159 millions liters) per day.

Today, while work is being done in the commercial vehicle segment, very few large trucks on the road are electric—however, this is expected to change by 2025.

Over the past few years, electric passenger vehicles have shown the greatest growth in adoption.

In 2022, the electric car market underwent exponential growth, with sales surpassing 10 million cars. Throughout 2023 and beyond, the market is forecast to grow strongly, eventually saving 886,700 barrels (140,974,034 liters) of oil per day by 2025.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
