America’s Slow Uptake of EVs
The US EV market has been growing at a slow rate, and the once EV dominating country has slid down the global rankings.
Though EV adoption is still growing in the US it is far slower than its counterparts; America’s 18% global market share in 2020 has slid down to 11% in 2022. With California leading much of the charge, the rest of the USA has been slow to get EV fever.
