Growing Sales of Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles have become an integral part of the automotive industry, and they represent a pathway toward achieving energy efficiency, along with reduced emissions of pollutants and other greenhouse gases. The increasing environmental concerns, coupled with favorable government initiatives, are some of the major factors driving the market growth.

Global battery electric vehicle sales were marked at 3.5 million units in 2021, which was significantly higher compared to sales figures in 2020. The movement to accelerate the adoption of light-duty passenger electric cars (EVs) and phase out traditional vehicles with internal combustion engines is gaining traction around the world. The increase in average fuel prices reflects the fact that Europe has a higher share of new electric car registrations than other parts of the world. Hence, mass adoption of electric vehicles, owing to rising fuel prices, is expected to proliferate business globally. 

Rising government investment in the development of charging infrastructure across the globe is likely to promote the sale of electric vehicles. For instance, 

  • In October 2022, the German government invested Euro 6.3 Billion (USD 6.1 Billion) to increase the number of charging stations across the country. 
  • In September 2022, Japanese leasing company Orix announced the installation of electric vehicle charging stations across the country. The company will build around 50,000 charging stations by 2025 in partnership with Ubiden.
