Global EV Outlook 2020

An annual publication covering recent developments in electric mobility

Global sales of electric cars exceeded 2.1 million in 2019, boosting the total stock to 7.2 million. As recently as 2010, there were only about 17,000 on the world’s roads.

Accounting for 2.6% of global car sales and about 1% of global car stock in 2019, electric cars registered a 40% year-on-year increase.

Policy announcements have been central to the increase in electric vehicle sales in recent years, setting clear, long-term signals to the auto industry and consumers.

The Global EV Outlook is an annual publication that identifies recent developments in electric mobility, with the support of the members of the Electric Vehicles Initiative (EVI). Combining historical analysis with projections to 2030, the report examines key areas of interest such as electric vehicle and charging infrastructure deployment, ownership cost, energy use, carbon dioxide emissions and battery material demand.
