10 Countries With 5–10% Plugin Vehicle Market Share

A few days ago, I wrote an article about the top 5 countries in terms of plugin vehicle market share. In response to that article, one reader, “No way” (I have a feeling that’s not his/her real name), requested a graph and article on countries aspiring to 10% plugin vehicle market share.

A few days ago, I wrote an article about the top countries in terms of plugin vehicle market share. In response to that article, one reader, “No way” (I have a feeling that’s not his/her real name), requested a graph and article on countries aspiring to 10% plugin vehicle market share.

I thought that sounded like a fun idea since, as No way pointed out, European EV market share has jumped this year and several European countries are now in that category: “Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Switzerland, UK and Liechtenstein.” Additionally, it shouldn’t be long before they are saying goodbye to 10% and setting their sights higher. “In 2021 most if not all of them will be above 10%….” That is an exciting point worth highlighting. Historically, those top markets mentioned at the top have seen their plugin market share rise past 10% quickly once in the 5–10% range.

So, let’s see if No way got the list of countries right, and how these countries’ EV market growth looks in graph and chart form.

In the interactive graph below, note that you can hover over a line in the graph to see it highlighted and can also hover over any particular year for a specific country/line to see the plugin vehicle market at that point in time for that country. Also, these interactive graphs and charts can have difficulty displaying correctly on a phone. If you have that problem, check them out on a computer.

In the interactive chart below, you can use the drop-down button to select a country and then can see a bar chart of plugin-vehicle market share from 2015 to the first 5 months of 2020.

So, yes, No way‘s list of countries between 5% and 10% plugin-vehicle market was right on the money.

Note that China is just barely below 5% plugin-vehicle market share so far this year, at 4.7% at the end of June. The United States? Don’t ask.

For reference, here again are the top 6 countries in terms of 2020 plugin-vehicle market share:

We’ll see which of the 10 countries currently sitting between 5% and 10% plugin-vehicle market share can climb above 10% market share by the end of 2020. Any guesses?

Special thanks again to EAFO for the data.
