The electric vehicles (EVs) adoption rate in Romania has soared to 9% in 2022, marking a remarkable 72% increase from the previous year.
In 2022, electric vehicle sales in China reached 27% of total vehicles sold, in Europe made up just over 20%, and in the US, EV sales increased to more than 7% of all vehicles sold.
Thus, electric vehicle sales doubled in 2021 and jumped 55% in 2022 to account for 13% of all vehicles sold, says EY.
By 2040, the total number of residential, private, and public chargers needed in Europe will top 140 million (88% will be destined for home charging) to service an estimated 239 million EVs. In the US, a total of 91 million chargers (85% for home charging) will be required to serve 152 million vehicles in the same timeframe.
According to an ACEA report published last June, Romania, which covers approximately 6% of the European Union surface, provides only 0.4% of the charging points in the EU.
