This month, ICCT estimates that the number of plug-in electric vehicles on the world’s roads reached one million – a major milestone in the emergence of this new industry. The milestone was achieved in about six years – several years faster than it took for non-plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to reach the first million in sales.
