According to an Deloitte study, until November 2020, a landmark one million vehicle sold in Europe were either full electric or hybrid models, accounting for one in every 10 passenger cars sold on the continent.
In fact, in Europe, in the first nine months of 2020, EV sales surpassed those in China for the first time in at least five years.
In the UK, in September 2020, EV sales eclipsed diesel sales for the first time in history.
This is a significant turning point in moving toward achieving 30%–40% electric vehicle (EV) sales volume by 2030.
Of the 308 million motor vehicles on Europe’s roads today, just 3 million are electric. But the future potential is vast. EY analysis puts the estimated number of EVs at 40 million by 2030.
