June EV Sales: Europe vs North America vs China

Originally published on EV Obsession.

EU vs NA vs CH EV Sales JuneFollowing sales reports on June US electric car sales, Europe electric car sales, and China electric car sales, I thought it would be interesting to compare the powerhouses (and throw Canada on top of the US to make it “North America” since it’s all basically one economic region). So, below is a chart and table comparing (and also adding up these regions).

The general take-home point, I think, is that Europe is now leading the world (driven largely by the large markets of Norway, France, the UK, the Netherlands, and Germany), with about 25,000 more electric car sales in the first half of 2015 than North America and about 34,000 more than China. The June story is similar on a smaller scale, with Europe showing about 6,000 more electric car sales than each China and North America.

Of course, there are many relative factors you could use here to make the comparisons more interesting: per capita sales, % of total car sales, per GDP sales, etc. But I’ll leave that for another day… maybe.

Economic Powerhouse June 2015 YTD 2015
North America 9,743 53,420
China 10,016 44,406
Europe 16,006 78,388
Total 35,765 176,214
