NACS today reported on an article published in the Wall Street Journal saying 10% of global 2022 car sales were EVs. The NACS article can be found here.
EV sales in the U.S. still only make up a small fraction of vehicle sales at 5.8%, but in China and Europe, EVs were 19% and 11% of total car sales, respectively. When adding in plug-in hybrid vehicles, the share of electric vehicles sold in Europe rose to 20.3% of the total last year.
Even though the U.S. saw a smaller share of EV sales than Europe and China, sales were up by two-thirds over 2021, with 807,180 fully electric vehicles sold in the U.S. last year.
