    This article addresses the issue linking economical and territorial dynamics in the emergence of the electric vehicle (EV). It analyses the case of California from a mission on the EV sector and from further research embracing territorial and industrial economics. In that sense, emerging EV sector dynamics are analyzed over long period and in the light of the role of local governments, especially in the organization of proximities effectively combined in California. The main results are that California is the crucible of an EV sector whose emergence reflects both its force, as its physiognomy. This vigour is captured through a demographic analysis of EV producers in the United States. Furthermore, we show that the emergence of this industry is characterized by a market with opportunities enlarged by crossing traditional sectoral boundaries of energy, transport and telecommunications.
