Plug-in vehicle market shares have seen growth in the United States, China, and Europe. From 2015 to 2018, plug-in vehicle market share in the United States rose from 0.7% to 2.1% and made up 1.9% in 2019. In that same five-year timeframe, market share of plug-in vehicles in China more than quadrupled, reaching 5.1% in 2019. Europe, as a whole, has also seen growth of plug-in vehicle sales share reaching 3.0% in 2019.

Editor’s note: We cover EV sales somewhat obsessively here on CleanTechnica. It was interesting to see this snapshot from the US Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, but for much more detail and nuance in these places, see our archives for US EV sales, Europe EV sales, and China EV sales.

Also, while the article above focuses on 2015–2019 sales, note that 2020 has been a big step forward so far in terms of EV market share in Europe, where it actually hit 11% market share in April and was 8% for the first 4 months of the year. These are the plug-in vehicle market leaders over here:
