Sales of Electric Vehicles Are Soaring – Infographic

“Sales of Electric Vehicles Are Soaring!”

That’s the translated version of the title of this infographic.

The infographic is done in such a way that the need to translate is mostly eliminated, but allow us to point out that this infographic only includes BEVs (PHEVs and EREVs don’t make the cut here).

How can they list the “Top 5 Models of the World” in 2013 and not have the Chevy Volt shown? Are they not counting it because it has a gas engine for trips beyond 40 miles?

That’s the only thing I can figure.

Also, my knowledge of world flags is awful. What country is that with 42,194 sales in 2013? πŸ™‚

The EU.

“Dans le monde” means “in the world” but, as others have pointed out, I guess PHEV’s and EREV’s don’t make the cut. πŸ˜‰

I misread this post entirely, you were referring to the flag I think. πŸ™‚

Scatter-brained today, apparently.

That flag is the European Union Flag, representing the continent.

Thanks. That explains why I didn’t recall that flag from my world studies classes in high school. πŸ™‚

From the article: “PHEVs and EREVs don’t make the cut here”.

It’s for electric cars, not hybrids. How hard is it to read the text? πŸ˜›

Okay, Okay, haha πŸ™‚

Many people loosely call any plug-in an electric vehicle of sorts, so I didn’t give much credence to the “Vehicles electrique” title, but I stand corrected. πŸ˜‰

350km EVs? How are they calculating? The companies estimates added together and middled (like Tesla 500km + Leaf 200km / 2 = 350km)?

Think they are just using Tesla, and calling out the max range available for an EV that can be purchased.

I was thinking the same. I guess that is indeed an average.

If we can really achieve 800km range on a battery by 2020, that will be pretty awesome.

Traditional ICE vehicles will no longer exist for the consumer.

So you think EVs will go from 1/10 of 1% of the market to 100% in 6 years?

Rick: Haha, I like how you made that point.

I think we’d have a much better chance of that with 800km range EV’s, though I don’t know if that will truly happen in 6 years either.

Suffice to say that, if it does, EV’s will be capturing a much greater percentage of marketshare, as ICE vehicles will truly be obsolete (though perhaps still purchased).

Fair? πŸ˜‰

Why would you want that? You’d be paying thousands of dollars for battery capacity that you’d rarely ever use.

Oh, that’s easy.

Because people want that, and currently refuse to buy EVs because they don’t have that.

Now, 6 years from now, it may not actually be the case where it would necessarily be “thousands of dollars” in extra capacity, either, so…
