Market share EV-friendly cities

Cities have been at the forefront of stimulating EV deployment and are important players in helping to accelerate the transition to electric driving. Leading EV cities have shown that, as a result of dedicated local policies complementing national EV policy schemes, they can create a favourable environment for EV use and reduce consumer barriers.

Nearly a third of global electric car sales took place in just 14 cities in 2015, and major global urban centres often achieve higher electric car market shares compared to their country averages. Air quality issues are one of the main drivers for cities to stimulate EVs.
