The electric vehicle (EV) market in the United States broke records in 2021, estimated at just under 607,600 light electric vehicle sales. This was approximately 83 percent more than in 2018—the year which marked the beginning of a strong demand for Tesla’s Model 3. The sedan is one of the best-selling electric vehicles on the U.S. market to date.
While Tesla dominated the plug-in electric vehicle market in 2021, it was also followed closely by the Volkswagen Group, whose worldwide electric vehicle sales soared that same year. Overall, manufacturers were looking to increase their research and development expenditure, with electric mobility at the forefront of their investments. This was in part motivated by the U.S. government’s commitment to half of all vehicle sales to be zero emission by 2030.
