The International Energy Association (IEA) recently released a fascinating chart that compares ICE and EV sales across various countries and regions for the years 2019 and 2020. As you can see, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, sales of ICE vehicles declined in all countries and regions shown, except for Korea. 

On the flip side, sales of electric vehicles increased YOY in all regions except only Japan and Canada. Europe of course saw the greatest increase in 2020, primarily because of the EU emissions mandate that results in huge penalties for automakers that don’t meet emissions targets.

The number of DC fast charging locations in the US increased 26.5% in 2020 to 4,288 from 3,389 in 2019, using data from the AFDC database. The number of connections (“ports”) increased by 39.2% to 17,400, from 12,504 in 2019. 

The number of Level 2 charging locations in the US increased 17.3% in 2020 to 25,633 from 21,853 in 2019. The number of connections (“ports”) increased by 31.1% to 77,617, from 59,225 in 2019.
