Global electric car sales’ ‘explosive growth’ – in numbers

The share of EVs in total car sales globally jumped from 9% in 2021 to 14% in 2022, more than 10 times their share in 2017, according to the International Energy Agency’s new EV report, released today.

The IEA’s “Global EV Outlook 2023” reports that electric car sales grew, despite a shrinking global car market. Electric car sales – that’s battery electric and plug-in hybrids – exceeded 10 million in 2022, up 55% compared to 2021.
The IEA’s report states in the “Trends in electric light-duty vehicles” section:
