Half of plug-in vehicles in the US in 2019 were mid-size cars

Half of all plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) on the road in the US in 2019 were mid-size cars. However, PEVs are available in size classes ranging from two-seaters to minivans.

Together, compact cars and large cars accounted for nearly 30% of the PEV population. Standard sport utility vehicles (SUVs) accounted for 9% while small SUVs were another 2%.

In the 1900s hybrid cars were in as a transition alternative to battery electric cars until Ford and Rockefeller launched the ICEV industry and killed battery development. What we once thought as a progressive technology has in the long run, proven to be a detriment to Earth's society and the creation of discord between nations who have actually fought wars over hydrocarbon fuel.
Perhaps the World would be a better place had electric transportation won the day. This time around, battery electric cars will displace the need for hybrids.


Hybrids have the range without the weight, cost and charge times.
With a limited supply of batteries we can make more hybrids.
