Did you know that auto analysts project that plug-in vehicle sales will rise from 6.6 million in 2021 to 20.6 million in 2025? Plug-in vehicles are predicted to make up 23% of new passenger vehicle sales globally in 2025, up from just under 10% in 2021. Three-quarters of those will be fully electric.
Electric transportation is here to stay. With more and more electric vehicles (EVs) of all shapes and sizes hitting the U.S., people are recognizing their benefits and taking advantage of all they have to offer. Nearly all auto manufacturers currently sell or plan to sell electric models. Once in an EV, owners will experience fuel and maintenance savings, increased driving performance, and enjoy environmental and energy security benefits.
