It’s not just you! Electric vehicles are more popular than ever; I’m planning on purchasing an electric car by the end of the year myself! Not only do EV drivers save money at the pump and on yearly maintenance, but they’re also doing the environment some good!
Here’s what we know about how many electric vehicles are on the road:
  • In 2002, EV sales reached an astounding 3 million, which was 40% more than in 2019.
  • Representing only one percent of the global car stock, there are over 10 million electric vehicles now on the road.
  • The Net Zero Emissions by 2050 Scenario predicts that by 2030 we will see over 300 million electric cars driving around!
Now that you can feel good about investing in an electric vehicle, welcome to the club! Just make sure the extra cash you’re going to save doesn’t go towards overpriced car insurance.
