PEV: projected U.S. sales by manufacturer 2025

Tesla is projected to sell an estimated 200,000 plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) in the United States in 2025, around 18,000 more than Ford and 50,000 more than both Volkswagen and General Motors.

Is Tesla facing a bumpy ride?

The total number of PEVs sold in the United States exceeded 358,000 in 2018, but forecasts suggest that figure could rise to an estimated 1.2 million in 2025. Tesla has dominated the electric vehicle market in the United States for several years and sold around ten times as many vehicles as its closest competitor in 2018. However, competition within the market is set to increase over the next few years as manufacturers invest more in the industry and produce a wider range of vehicles to satisfy customer demand.

Is Ford about to turn a corner?

Ford was ranked tenth on the list of manufacturers with the most battery electric vehicles sold in the United States in 2018, but the company is expected to sell the second-largest number of PEVs in the country in 2025. Ford’s research and development expenditures have steadily increased in recent years, with a significant amount of money invested into expanding its fleet of electric vehicles – the Ford Fusion Energi made the top ten of the best-selling PEVs in the United States in 2018 .
