A NEW GREEN MARKET
The electric vehicles market is booming driven by tough CO2 regulations, technology development and stronger government incentives.
The global EVs (Electric Vehicles) market is amped up and on the rise.
- Growing consumer demand for greener vehicles, coupled with government incentives, and inner-city restrictions for gasoline and diesel vehicles is contributing to the popularization of EVs.
- In 2017, for the first time, global sales of new EVs passed a million units. Under the current growth trajectory, EV producers could almost quadruple that achievement by 2020, moving 4.5 million units, around 5% of the overall global light-vehicle market.
Technology, government incentives and a shift in consumer behavior are some of the factors in the growth of the EV market. By 2022, technological advancements will put the cost of owning an EV on par with traditional petrol or diesel vehicles. This will eliminate one of the greatest barriers to purchase, boosting demand and increasing market growth.
more electric vehicles expected worldwide by 2030
of total EV sales in 2030 will be BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicles)
