The Global EV Outlook represents the collective effort of seven years of primary data gathering and analysis from the Electric
Vehicle Initiative’s 16 member governments. Below are key takeaways and insights from this work. Overall, EV and charging
infrastructure deployment has continued growing since the 2013 Global EV Outlook. Battery costs have come down while
energy density has climbed; vehicle electrification has gone multi-modal with 46,000 electric buses and 235 million electric
two-wheelers deployed; and total EV spending by EVI governments equalled 16 billion USD between 2008-2014.
