For the period of 2018 through 2020, sales of battery electric vehicles (BEVs – not including PHEVs) were flat to down. But because overall vehicle sales also declined, BEVs’ share of total vehicle sales actually increased. EVAdoption forecasts California BEV sales share jumping to 6.1% in 2021 and then increasing steadily to 56.6% by the end of 2030.
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.)
