2021 Review of the European Electric Vehicle Market: BEV and PHEV Sales, Charging Infrastructure, and Supportive Policies

By 2021, Europe had emerged as the world’s second-largest market for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) following China. The robust growth in this market was marked by a notable 66% increase from the preceding year, with sales of 2.3 million plug-in hybrid and battery electric passenger cars. This significant surge in adoption can be attributed to the EU’s stringent CO2 emission standards, which compelled automakers to comply with stricter regulations. It is noteworthy that all manufacturers succeeded in meeting their 2021 CO2 targets, leading to a noteworthy reduction in average emissions to 113 g/km.

This report provides an overview of the European electric vehicle (EV) market in 2021, including the adoption of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs), the deployment of public charging infrastructure, and supportive policies. The report analyzes the 16 largest national EV markets and the 48 metropolitan regions with the highest BEV and PHEV shares and registrations. It also investigates the top 10 national markets with the most public chargers installed in 2021 and public charger deployment at the local level.

Chinese Electric Vehicle (EV) Market Set to Surpass Conventional Cars by 2030 Despite Predicted Slowdown in 2023

It is projected that the Chinese automobile market will experience a deceleration in growth in 2023, subsequent to robust sales of electric vehicles (EVs) in 2022. Despite the slowdown, the transition towards green vehicles continues to be a priority. It is predicted that by 2030, the quantity of zero-emission vehicles will surpass that of conventional internal combustion vehicles.

This article discusses the state of the Chinese car market with a focus on the growth of electric vehicles (EVs). While there was strong growth in EV sales in 2022, the article predicts that the overall passenger car market will slow down in 2023. However, the article argues that this does not signal the end of the green transition. The article highlights that the number of zero-emission cars is expected to surpass conventional internal combustion engine cars by 2030.

Optimizing Electric Vehicle Fast Charging Station Planning and Distribution Network Economic Operation

The increasing global energy and environmental crises have spurred the development of electric vehicles (EVs) as a sustainable alternative to traditional gasoline-powered vehicles. In line with this trend, China has set out ambitious goals to promote the development of its new energy vehicle industry, with a target to reach 80 million EVs on the road by 2030. However, the rapid growth of EVs presents challenges, particularly in the construction of charging infrastructure, which is essential for the widespread adoption of EVs. While China has proposed plans to form a charging infrastructure system capable of meeting the needs of over 20 million EVs by the end of 2025, slow construction and insufficient capacity planning remain obstacles to the development of EVs. Addressing these challenges is crucial to ensure user convenience and reduce the impact on the distribution network, as the demand for charging stations is expected to continue to rise in the future.

This report discusses the construction of a joint-optimization model for the optimal planning of electric vehicle (EV) fast charging stations and the economic operation of a distribution network, considering user preference selection and EV access impact on the regional distribution network
