Sebastian Blanco of Auto Blog wrote a blog about reaching 1 million electric vehicles in the world. Below is a summary of this blog; There are now more than 1 million electric vehicles in the world.
Reaching 1 million electric vehicles worldwide is a milestone, albeit, a small one compared with the goal that is set for 2050. The International Energy Agency (IEA) did some number crunching and realized the 1 million electric vehicle mark was reached in late 2015. This is small compared to the goal of having over 1 billion electric vehicles by 2050.
This means the goal of reaching 1.4 million electric vehicles by 2020 is within reach. There are eight U.S. States that are leading the electric vehicle (EV) deployment race that believe they will have 3.3 million EVs by 2025. These eight states are: California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont.
