Author(s): International Energy Agency (IEA)


This report conveys information collected from EVI members and partners to analyse the global evolution of the EV market, the growth of the EV stock and the deployment of EVSE. It includes a review of policy actions on EVs and EVSE and analyses market developments in relation to changes in the policy framework. It also provides an update on RD&D developments, benefiting from the close relationship between the EVI and the IEA HEV TCP and the technology experts participating in it.

This report concerns mainly the electric car market and does not cover other transport modes at the same level of detail. The focus on the car market is due to both its dynamism and the wider availability of data for this vehicle group. Targeted details on two-wheelers, three-wheelers, LSEVs and buses, with a focus on some of the most significant cases, including those having implications for future market developments, complement the information on cars.
