A report by the International Energy Agency suggests that the number of electric cars running on the roads this year has already reached 10 million. It is proof that, somehow, electric cars were able to withstand the ravaging of COVID-19 pandemic in the automotive industry.
Furthermore, it is expected that electric car sales will have a better outcome this year than other conventional vehicles. The current sales of electric cars as of June 2020 is 2.1 million already, which is almost similar to the electric car sales in the same period last year, according to the Global EV Outlook of the International Energy Agency. The data shows that EV car sales this year make up 3% of the total car sales worldwide.
