Electric Vehicle - Thematic Research


Electric Vehicles (EVs) surpassed 3.1 million sales in 2020, with majority of demand derived from Europe. Europe represents more than 45% of the global electric car sales, followed by China and the US. Europe surpassed China in EV sales in 2020 with 1.4 million EVs sold. The growth was driven by both existing policies and COVID stimulus measures. Globally, EV sales grew 40.9% YOY and accounted for 4% of car sales in 2020. However, large scale commercial production of EVs by the big car makers is unlikely to take off until 2025.

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak caused a decline in the global auto industry, yet electric car sales did the opposite. The growth was supported by quick recovery in China and strong growth in Europe. Over the long term, EV market share is also more likely to increase in China and Europe compared to the US. Innovations in battery technology coupled with favorable regulatory policies will drive EV costs down, which in turn will drive increased adoption. Battery manufacturing is also ramping up, especially in Europe. The region is catching up with Asian rivals in battery manufacturing but requires more efforts to build a complete supply chain.

Power utilities, EV charging point operators, automakers, and EV charging hardware manufacturers, along with other auto industry stakeholders are also supporting increased investment into EV charging infrastructure. Utilities have an important role to play in boosting vehicle electrification. There is a lot of opportunity for those willing to invest in EV infrastructure and customer engagement. With planned investments and policies, the companies will be able to serve new markets. Power utilities are collaborating with EV manufacturers for boosting their offerings in areas such as EV charging, vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services, energy storage and renewable energy sources.
