This week’s SnapChart shows the monthly sales trajectory of electric vehicles in 2021 compared with previous years. The chart includes the two types of EVs. The Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) that you plug in at night, but can only go a relatively short distance before the backup combustion engine kicks-in. And, the pure Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) that have no auxiliary backup.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) reported that 3 million vehicles or 4.6% of all new car sales were electric in 2020. Based on the trajectory of growth so far this year, EVs could take a 7% or greater share of new car sales in 2021.
