Author: |

As the whole world is moving to the more environmentally friendly fuels and less emission, the production of electric cars has been sharply grown. In 2020, although the hard situation had surrounded all markets, the increase of all-electric and hybrid vehicles had good record. As EV Sales Blog reports, 3,124,793 plug-in cars were sold in 2020 and more than 68% of them were battery-electric. Also, the reveals show the changes in the market and new brands on it.

Although Tesla cars are still on the top of sale rate, but it seems that, this company has lost about 17% of the market. The market is growing much faster than Tesla Motors. And German company Volkswagen by a good strategy, is going to be the pioneer of the electric cars. This company in the three-last month of 2020 passed Teslas sale number (191,000 VW Group vs 183,000 Tesla).
