A major new report shows that adoption of electric vehicles is increasing rapidly, with sales in 2021 up 80 per cent on the previous year.

According to the Zero-Emission Vehicles Factbook, a total of 5.6 million EVs – including battery electric, plug-in hybrid and fuel cell vehicles – will be sold in 2021, bringing the overall total on roads globally to nearly 13 million. Of that latter figure, 8.5 million are true zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs), with hybrids making up the difference. At the time of COP25 in 2019, just 4.6 million ZEVs were on the road, indicating significant progress in decarbonising the road transport sector.
