Germany’s Projected EV Leadership
Previously: America’s Slow Uptake of EVs
Germany has seen astronomical growth in its citizen’s uptake of EVs in the past few years. In 2017, the country sold just under 54,500 EVs in a single year.
Five short years later in 2022, Germany sold 830,000 vehicles in a single year. The country is no longer doubling the number of EVs sold each year, but indeed is not showing any signs of letting up in its interest in electrifying its country’s vehicle population. All German OEMs have stepped up, offering a plethora of EV models to choose from. Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz still lead the pack, and Tesla most recently tied BMW for 3rd place.
