Towards cross-modal electrification

International Energy Agency

The Global EV Outlook is an annual publication that identifies and discusses recent developments in electric

mobility across the globe. Combining historical analysis with projections to 2030, the report examines key

areas of interest such as electric vehicle and charging infrastructure deployment, ownership costs, energy

use, CO2 emissions and battery materials demand. The publication includes policy recommendations,

learning from frontrunner markets to inform policymakers and stakeholders who aim to encourage electric

vehicle adoption. The Global EV Outlook annual series is developed with the support of the members of the

Electric Vehicles Initiative (EVI).
