2019 goes electric-plus

There will be 2.6m electric vehicles sold in 2019, adding to the 5m already on the road globally. China will again lead from the front, accounting for around 1.5m of those sales, according to BloombergNEF.

European EV sales will reach 500,000 in 2019, with growth strong in the Nordics and Germany. Sales in Italy have been slow but should start picking up in 2019, while sales in the UK will likely be flat or declining after the government eliminated support for plug-in hybrids, says BloombergNEF.
