The electrification of passenger vehicles has shifted into higher gear, with automakers expanding from sedans to roll out electric versions of popular sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and pickup trucks. These larger vehicles have represented the biggest chunk of new vehicle sales in recent years, both in the US and elsewhere, meaning the adoption of electric versions could take an even bigger bite out of fuel consumption. "It seems to be the front end of a tidal wave coming up,” Kevin Riddell, a senior manager at consultancy LMC Automotive outside Detroit, told Energy Intelligence. "We’re finally getting to a point where we want to sell electric vehicles (EVs) at scale. If you really want to start selling volume, SUVs and pickup trucks are where you have to start putting out new entrants. That's where the growth has been over the last decade or more." Going Bigger
