The International Energy Agency projects that 125 million EVs could hit the road by 2025, leaping considerably from roughly 3.2 million today. From what once accounted for a handful of models a decade ago will take 23% of the global passenger vehicle market by 2025. In just a few years, Tesla, the all-electric market disruptor, has eclipsed the valuation of the likes of Ford and GM, having just two production models to market. Not to be overshadowed, GM is a leader among EV-minded automakers as the only OEM successfully producing them at scale today with its Bolt and Volt. Other automakers are following fast. Renault-Nissan plans to offer 8-12 battery-electric vehicles by the early 2020s. In fact, nearly all automakers have understood the need to transition out of petroleum-based combustion engines and penetrate the EV market. BMW announced its goal of 15-25% of group sales from EVs by 2025, while Volkswagen aims to sell 2-3 million EVs by that time. With this in mind, Frost & Sullivan projects that global sales of electric vehicles could reach 30.8 million units by 2025, surging at an aggressive 29% growth rate.
