Co-op EVolution: Notable EV Trends to Watch

CoBank regularly shares new industry insights, reports, podcasts and other resources to help electric co-ops evaluate the challenges and opportunities in the evolving EV market.

Notable EV Trend Indicators

  • EV sales jumped from 3.2 million vehicles in 2020 to more than 10 million in 2022 and adoption continues to rise.
  • There will be an estimated 40 million electric vehicles on the road by the end of the year and that’s still a fraction of the global vehicle fleet.
  • Buyers have placed large orders for zero-emission vans and trucks and deliveries are already taking place.
  • The need for public charging stations remains and grid connections issues will be a hurdle to faster growth.
