Impact on EV sales due to COVID-19
COVID-19 turned the world around on its head – there has been a major health risk, a shake in the world economy, a hike in unemployment and several other issues. In the electric vehicle world, the pandemic had a different impact – there was an increase in the sales of EV’s.
In today’s world of social distancing and self-service, EV’s were the most preferred choice for many consumers. The dependence on e-commerce solutions and avoiding gas stations coupled with a sustainable approach added immensely to the purchase of electric vehicles. 94% of global EV sales is represented by China, Europe and the USA which saw positive momentum in 2020. In Europe, 5,000 – 6,000 e-bikes and scooters were seen on the roads everyday.
On the other hand, the apprehension towards public transport and lack of private vehicles pushed consumers to depend on e-commerce delivery options. This resulted in several companies choosing electric vehicles for transportation facilities due to a lower cost of ownership. Similarly, there has been an improvement in battery range and a decrease in battery costs for electric vehicles.
