Projected electric vehicle sales worldwide by region 2025

Around 6.3 billion electric vehicles are forecast to be sold in Europe in 2025, representing a significant increase in the sales volume of electric vehicles across the region in 2019. A similar story is projected in China: sales in 2025 will be almost double the number of electric vehicles currently in use across the country.

More miles, more smiles

Growing demand from consumers is among the reasons why electric vehicle sales are expected to surge globally over the next few years. They are becoming a more attractive option because of an increased range: only a small number of electric vehicles currently have a range of around 236 miles (380 kilometers), but this is projected to be the average distance of electric vehicles in 2025.

China’s electric car boom

In recent years, quarterly sales of electric vehicles in China have exceeded those of the rest of the world, and this trend looks set to continue with China projected to produce double the amount of electric cars than the next ranked country in 2021. The projected success of the Chinese market is one reason why the size of the global market for electric vehicles in 2025 is estimated to be around five times bigger than in 2017.
