Electric Vehicles Arrive Way Ahead of Public Demand, Comfort Level
The long awaited boom in electric vehicles has officially arrived a full 20 years after the introduction of the first hybrid Honda Insight landed in America.
And yet with barely 2 percent of total US market share, and even combined EV and Hybrid sales struggling to breach 5%, the technology is clearly still way ahead of consumer demand.
But the 66% increase in electrified sales is real with twice as many units being sold now than just three years ago, and a doubling of the number of new EV models on the way.
In fact the hot future of electric vehicles is being propelled by government mandates around the world led by China, which has made it a state policy to dominate the EV and autonomous vehicles technology and marketplace.
With Trump Administration lowering fuel economy targets, California leads the nation and the world in environmental policy-making that drives EV adoption.
And now EVs like the Nissan Leaf, Chevy Bolt, the Tesla line-up, Jaguar i-Pace, and Mitsubishi Outlander, are joined by the Audi E-Tron, Mercedes EQC wagons, Porsche Taycan super coupe, Volvo XC40 SUV and others making sales swell.
