Number of electric vehicles in use

In light of increasing worldwide acceptance of electric transmission vehicles, a growing number of automakers are intending to tap into the market for electric vehicles. The world’s best-selling battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles include Tesla's Model S, Nissan’s Leaf and Toyota’s Prius Plug-in Hybrid. California-based Tesla Motors was among the first carmakers to assemble electric vehicles exclusively. In July 2014, Tesla and Panasonic paved the way for the construction and operation of the world's largest battery factory in the United States. In the first quarter of 2018, Tesla delivered nearly 30,000 vehicles worldwide.

China is ranked as the largest market for all-electric vehicles. The growing demand for electric cars in markets such as China, the United States and Norway is often triggered by government incentives including subsidies, exemptions from tolls and parking fees.
