Market Trends of europe electric vehicle Industry

Environmental concerns, government support, and decarbonization goals fuel European electric vehicle demand and sales

  • The demand and sales of electric vehicles in European countries have grown significantly over the past few years. Germany witnessed a growth in the sales of electric cars by 22% in 2022 over 2021, followed by the United Kingdom with an 18.40% increase in 2022 over 2021. Growing environmental concerns, stringent governmental norms, advantages of electric vehicles such as fuel efficiency, low service cost, no carbon emissions, and subsidies by the government are some of the factors contributing to the growth of electric vehicles in European countries.
  • The demand for electric commercial vehicles, especially light trucks, is growing gradually in European countries. Moreover, the governments of various countries are also supporting the adoption of electric vehicles. In November 2021, the government of the United Kingdom announced a pledge that all heavy-duty vehicles would be zero-emission by the year 2040. Such factors have increased the sales of electric commercial vehicles in the United Kingdom by 23.17% in 2022 over 2021, and similar practices in various countries are enhancing the demand for electric commercial vehicles across Europe.
  • It is projected that the electrification of vehicles in European countries is expected to grow tremendously in the next few years. The efforts of the governments in the regions for decarbonization are expected to drive the electric commercial vehicle market in Europe. For instance, in January 2022, the transport minister of Germany announced a goal to put 15 million electric vehicles on the road by 2030. Such factors are expected to increase the sales of electric vehicles during the 2024-2030 period in European countries.
