The US electric car market continues to grow rapidly » Nearly 6% of new car sales in 2022 were fully-electric

CleanTechnica reports that in 2022, approximately 5.7% of US new car sales were battery electric vehicles (BEV), up from 3.2% in 2021.

Tesla continues to dominate the US electric car sales market, which can make it seem as though not much is changing here. However, the biggest story is probably that the US electric car market as a whole continues to grow strongly. In 2022, our analysis shows that BEV sales increased 65% compared to 2021. (Note: there are a few models we don’t track since automakers don’t split out BEV sales of a model from ICE sales of a model, or don’t report sales at all — but these sales are negligible in the grand scheme of the US BEV market.)

Just looking at the 4th quarter, BEV sales were 72% higher than in the 4th quarter of 2021! So, the sales growth is apparently only speeding up even as the market gets bigger — for now, at least.

Volvo Cars is on track for cost parity between BEV and ICE-powered vehicles by 2025



The company’s chief commercial officer and deputy CEO Bjorn Annwall told CarExpert that, unlike some brands that persist with internal combustion development, Volvo’s commitment to be a battery electric vehicle company by 2030 means it has a potential for cost parity by mid-decade.

“I think it’s really important that you get cost parity between BEV and ICE,” Mr Annwall said.

“Our whole technical roadmap is geared to achieve exactly that, that by mid-decade, the cost for BEV should be same as ICE. And that’s the reason we need to work on optimising the full flow in a different way to get that out.

Lack of electric vehicles availability slowing down the Canadian government’s efforts to transition federal fleet

Natasha Bulowski, National Observer ::

A lack of vehicle availability and charging infrastructure is slowing down the federal government’s efforts to transition its fleet to electric vehicles, according to a memo to the deputy minister of natural resources that Canada’s National Observer obtained through a federal access-to-information request.

The federal government is aiming for its light-duty vehicle fleet to be comprised entirely of zero-emission or hybrid vehicles by 2030. These vehicles are used for a wide range of purposes across all federal departments, like mail delivery or transporting equipment and employees for work duties (for example, to meetings and conferences).
