Global EV Sales for 2018 – Final Results

Global plug-in vehicle deliveries reached 2,1 million units for 2018, 64 % higher than for 2017. These include all BEV and PHEV passenger cars sales, light trucks in USA/Canada and light commercial vehicle in Europe and China. Their share in the global light vehicle market was as high as 3,8 % in December and 2,2 % for 2018 in total. 69 % of sales were all-electric (BEV) and 31 % were plug-in hybrids (PHEV). All-electric vehicles have gained 3 % share in the mix since 2017, driven by growth in China, the arrival of the Tesla Model-3 and losses for PHEVs in Europe when the new fuel economy test procedure WLTP became effective in September.
