United States’ EV Sales in YTD June 2022 – Toyota Controlled 30% of the Market

The United States’ EV (HEV, PHEV, BEV, FCEV) market grew 18.9% year-on-year to 822,478 units in the first half of 2022. The ratio of EVs to all light vehicles increased by 3.8 percentage points to 12.2%. Due to the Biden administration's policy of tightening environmental regulations, automakers launched new BEV models one after another, boosting overall sales. The government has set a goal of raising the ratio of EVs (excluding HEVs) in new car sales to a maximum of 50% by 2030, so PHEV and BEV sales are expected to increase significantly in the future.

Looking at EV sales by Type, BEVs increased 62.3% to 326,302 units. The segment was led by Tesla models, up 67.9% to 215,360 units, controlling 65.9% of the market. PHEVs went up 8.6% to 92,164 units. The top model in the segment was the Jeep Wrangler, up 42.7% to 17,910 units, controlling 19.4% of the market.
