U.S. to see 2.7 million plug-in electric vehicles on roads by 2023

The number of plug-in electric vehicles on roads in the U.S. will grow from nearly 296,000 in 2014 to more than 2.7 million in 2023, according to a new report from Navigant Research.

Annual sales in North America, Western Europe and Asia Pacific will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 23.7 percent, report concludes.

 

The largest regional market for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) is North America, with estimated 2013 sales of slightly less than 100,000. Navigant Research expects that figure to grow rapidly over the next 10 years, as more models become available, the price premium for PEVs compared to conventional vehicles narrows, and charging infrastructure is deployed widely.

“The U.S. market for plug-in electric vehicles is reaching a new level of maturity and expansion,” says Scott Shepard, research analyst with Navigant Research. “The introduction of PEV options in the truck, van, and sport utility vehicle segments — which make up half the North American automotive market — will help drive strong growth in the PEV market going forward.”

The major regional PEV markets, North America, Western Europe and Asia Pacific, will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 23.7 percent through 2023, according to the report. Outside of the U.S., the largest urban markets will be Tokyo and Paris, with PEV sales in 2023 of nearly 49,000 and 25,000 vehicles, respectively.
