The average range of BEVs available in the US will reach an estimated 302 miles and have a median range of 293 by the end of 2023, a key finding from the updated and latest EVAdoption forecast.

The current average and median range are 216 and 236 miles respectively and should reach 256 and 250 miles by the end of 2020.

There are three key drivers of the increase to an average of 300 miles of range across the US fleet of BEVs by the end of 2023:

  1. The discontinuation or replacement of lower range BEVs including the smart fortwo (58 miles), Volkswagen eGolf (125), Fiat 500e (87), and Kia Soul EV (111 and increased to 243).
  2. Virtually all new BEVs coming to the US market in the next few years (with a few exceptions) will have ranges of at least 250-275 miles.
  3. Existing or soon to be released BEVs will typically see range increases of 25-40 miles about every 2 or 3 years.



Toyota’s US Hybrid Vehicle Sales Could Account for 23% of Total Sales in 2021

While we wait for the Toyota bZ4X BEV in 2022 and fingers crossed for more RAV4 Prime PHEVs being sent to the US, Toyota USA is crushing it with sales of its regular hybrids. Our current EVAdoption forecast has regular hybrids accounting for ~23.3% of 2021 sales (Toyota brand only, not including Lexus.)
