Driving Factors

North America's automobile manufacturing sector is rapidly transitioning from gasoline-powered automobiles to electric ones. Increased expenditures and the inclusion of innovative technology into electric vehicles by automobile manufacturing companies, as well as the development of improved charging systems and batteries, are driving North America electric vehicle market expansion. In addition, regulations and government policies that encourage the construction and operation of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations by transportation system operators, as well as increased investments in the EV ecosystem, is boosting the growth of this industry. Furthermore, the United States government recently established a net-zero carbon dioxide emissions goal for 2050, associated with substantial impacts, and implemented tough greenhouse gas emissions limitations for vehicles with engines. This functions as a market driver since automobile manufacturers will be forced to accept, produce, and sell electric automobiles in the years to come.


Moreover, the adoption of electric vehicles has expanded in a number of places and countries as fuel costs have risen. These vehicles emit no pollutants and are non-toxic to the environment. Electricity is far less expensive than fossil fuels. This reduces the cost associated with running electric vehicles as compared to traditional gasoline and diesel vehicles. Additionally, over the past decade, the overall price of EV batteries has decreased due to technological advances and the widespread manufacturing of EV batteries in large quantities. As an outcome, the cost of electric vehicles has come down. This feature has an impact on consumer demand for electric vehicle models. Furthermore, various economic advantages of electrically powered vehicles over traditional automobiles are expected to encourage market expansion over the projection period.


Restraining Factors

However, the shortage of rapid EV charging stations is projected to hamper the expansion of the electric vehicle sector. North American countries have a restricted number of EV charging stations. As a result, there are currently a smaller number of public EV charging points available, lowering electric vehicle adoption. A lot of consumers have avoided buying electric vehicles due to the lack of EV charging facilities, stifling market expansion in North America.


Market Segment

  • In 2022, the Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 77.3% over the forecast period.

On the basis of vehicle type, the North America Electric Vehicles Market is segmented into Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV). Among these, the Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) segment has the largest revenue share of 77.3% over the forecast period. The increased concern about the environment, as well as the advantages of BEVs among end users, can be linked to this rising demand for electric vehicles (EVs) in North America. Furthermore, the typical driving range of BEVs has constantly increased. In 2022, the typical range of BEVs was over 480 km, an increase from 320 km in 2021. Battery electric vehicles provide advantages such as improved efficiency, cheaper repair expenses, and fewer noises and vibrations which are aided by being capable of rapid torque and power output. Furthermore, BEVs produce no emissions or noise pollution.


  • In 2022, the greater than 250kW segment is influencing the largest CAGR over the forecast period.

Based on the power output, the North America Electric Vehicles Market is segmented into less than 100kW, 100 kW to 250 kW, and greater than 250kW. Among these segments, the greater than 250kW segment dominates the largest market share over the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to the increasing adoption of electric buses and trucks for heavy applications, the implementation of numerous wireless EV charging pilot projects for heavy commercial vehicles, and the increasing adoption of electric mobility in the region.


  • In 2022, the PCLT segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 46.2% over the forecast period.

On the basis of end-use applications, the North America Electric Vehicles Market is segmented into PCLT, commercial vehicles, and others. Among these, the PCLT segment has the largest revenue share of 79.2% over the forecast period. Passenger automobiles and light trucks are included in the PCLT sector. The light truck market is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR because SUVs provide sophisticated features, cost-efficiency, ease of use, and long-term reliability, among other benefits. Furthermore, several major automakers are planning to develop electric vehicles in the light truck segment. Some of the light trucks that will be offered on the market in the coming years include the BMW iX, Tesla Cybertruck, Audi Q4 e-tron, and GMC Hummer, several others.
