DOE: China’s plug-in vehicle sales more than 2.8x that of the US for 2017; 2.3% market share vs. 1.1%

Total plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) sales in China were more than 2.8 times that of the US in 2017—some 555,300 vehicles in China vs. US PEV sales of just under 200,000 (195,591), according to figures from the US Department of Energy (DOE).

Plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) sales in China began to grow rapidly after 2013, increasing from 0.1% to 2.3% of all new vehicle sales by 2017, mainly due to government monetary incentives and increased availability of PEV models.

The growth of PEV sales in the US has been more gradual, reaching 1.1% of light vehicle sales in 2017.

The share of all-electric vehicles (BEV) to plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) sold in China were much different than in the United States. In China, 81% of PEV sales were BEVs in 2017, while in the US, BEVs accounted for just over half (53%).



What a major difference in PEV growth rate between China and USA.

Why did USA's go flat in the last few years of Obama governance and China's kept on going up at a much faster rate?

Different governance = different performances/results?

Will comparative results be better or worse in 2018?

China also has a population 4.25 times that of the USA, no surprise they sell more electrified vehicles.
