The U.S. electric vehicle industry - statistics & facts

The electric vehicle market in the United States remained flat in 2020. The stagnation comes after record sales in 2018, the year that marked the beginning of strong demand for Tesla’s Model 3. The sedan is the best-selling electric vehicle on the U.S. market to date. Some of the main appeals of the Model 3 include its comparatively low base price and high range, as the distance covered without refueling comes close to that of its internal combustion-propelled competitors.

Competition picks up steam

Tesla continues to dominate the U.S. electric vehicle market with an estimated 290,000 electric vehicles sold in the United States in 2020. However, competition is beginning to gain momentum, and manufacturers such as General Motors are continuing to add new electric vehicle models into their range of vehicles offered. Chevrolet’s Bolt electric vehicle made it into the list of best-selling electric vehicle models in 2020. General Motors intends to sell only zero-emission vehicles by 2035.

Electricity as a fuel

Although being more environmentally benign in terms of greenhouse gas emission levels, the advantages offered by battery-powered vehicles are set off mainly by the source of energy used in U.S. power generation. Renewable sources accounted for about 18 percent of the total electricity generation in the United States in 2019, with California and Texas leading the way in terms of renewable electricity generation.
