Battery electric vehicles contributed over 6% to total global car sales in 2021

Battery electric vehicles have contributed more than six per cent of total global sales last year, claims a study by Jato. The study also claims that the market share of electric vehicles has doubled to 6.2 per cent from 3.1 per cent, as the popularity of zero-emission vehicles has been increasing around the world. It further says that 4.2 million battery-electric vehicles were sold in 2021. Interestingly, electric vehicles had a market share of 1.9 per cent in 2019. Since then, the demands for EVs have grown significantly.

The factors such as rising petrol and diesel prices concerns around vehicular emissions and their contribution to global warming, the cost-effectiveness of electric vehicles compared to internal combustion engine-powered vehicles are fuelling growth in the EV space. The lowering prices of electric vehicles, an increasing number of EV charging infrastructure, different government policies to promote electric mobility and battery electric technology too are contributing to this growth.
