(AP) – Electric vehicle sales are expected to hit a record 9% of all passenger vehicles in the U.S. this year, according to Atlas Public Policy.
That will be up from 7.3% of new car sales in 2022. This will be the first year U.S. EV sales surpass 1 million, and they will probably reach between 1.3 million and 1.4 million cars.
Electric vehicle prices in the U.S. have been falling.
Although the numbers show significant progress for electrification in the US, the nation still lags behind countries like China, Germany, and Norway.
