The International Energy Agency has released its new Global EV Outlook 2017 report on the occasion of two million (passenger) plug-in electric vehicles being sold worldwide – which was actually reached at the end of 2016.

2017 Nissan LEAF

As it turns out, more than 95% of those cars were sold in just 10 countries:

  • China – 648,770
  • United States – 563,710
  • Japan – 151,250
  • Norway – 133,260
  • Netherlands – 112,010
  • UK – 86,420
  • France – 84,000
  • Germany – 72,730
  • Sweden – 29,330
  • Canada – 29,270
  • Others 87,480

Yet those two millions still represent just 0.2% of total number of cars in the world
