Number Of Plug-In Electric Vehicles On Roads Now Over 2 Million – IEA
The International Energy Agency has released its new Global EV Outlook 2017 report on the occasion of two million (passenger) plug-in electric vehicles being sold worldwide – which was actually reached at the end of 2016.
As it turns out, more than 95% of those cars were sold in just 10 countries:
- China – 648,770
- United States – 563,710
- Japan – 151,250
- Norway – 133,260
- Netherlands – 112,010
- UK – 86,420
- France – 84,000
- Germany – 72,730
- Sweden – 29,330
- Canada – 29,270
- Others 87,480
Yet those two millions still represent just 0.2% of total number of cars in the world.
Prepare yourself for some charting Nirvana!
According to the IEA, sales should reach 9-20 million by 2020 and 40-70 million by 2025.
