The next two years on our global roads seem to be going electric as Teslas and Nissan Leafs are likely to become a much more common sight.
This was revealed by the International Energy Agency as it states that the global fleet of electric vehicles is likely to more than triple to 13 million by the end of the decade from 3.7 million last year, according to a report released on Wednesday from the Paris-based institution, which was set up to advise industrial nations on energy policy.
Sales may soar 24% each year on average through to 2030. The findings illustrate the speed at which the world’s transportation system is shifting toward cleaner fuels as governments focus on limiting pollution and greenhouse gases.
Tesla and Nissan have some of the best known EVs on the road now, but major automakers from Volkswagen to General Motors and Audi have followed suit in announcing dozens of battery-powered versions of their models.
