Given the policies in place today, China and Europe will be among the biggest adopters of EVs. In China, credits and subsidies could help EVs grow to over a quarter of the car market by 2030. In the mean time, tightening emissions standards and high fuel taxes across Europe could make EVs account for 23% of the market.
“Dynamic market uptake of electric vehicles has occurred in recent years,” the IEA said in a report. “Ongoing support and commitments for increased deployment of EVs from policy makers and the automotive industry suggest that this trend is not going to abate in the coming decade.”
