Up from just 84% in June 2018 on back of strong battery-electric vehicle (BEV) sales growth coupled with a boost in sales of long-range BEVs specifically.
In June 2019, battery electric vehicles (“BEVs”) were responsible for 91% of all passenger EV battery capacity deployed globally (in GWh) versus just 84% in June 2018, according to Adamas Intelligence’s latest ‘EV Battery Capacity Monthly’ report.
There are two causes for the increase in capacity deployed by BEVs relative to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (“PHEVs”) and hybrid electric vehicle (“HEVs”).
Firstly, in June 2019 sales of BEVs made up a greater share of overall EV sales than they did the same month the year prior as the sales growth of BEVs over the same period outpaced that of PHEVs and HEVs.
Secondly, in June 2019 sales of long-range BEVs with high capacity batteries (such as the Tesla Model 3, BYD e5, Dongfeng Fengshen E70 and Geely Emgrand) made up a greater share of total BEV sales than they did in June 2018.[source: Adamas Intelligence]
