2023 for electric vehicles

Taking into account the whole year (from January 2023 to September, when the last quarter report was released), the list of brands that sold the most changes: Chevrolet is in first place, with 49,531 models sold and Ford in second, and only slightly, 46,671 sales . This means that the fourth and final half of the year will be contested between the two manufacturers.

In third come Hyundai, with 33,624. Then, BMW, with 31,043; Mercedes, with 29,691 and Volkswagen, with 27,155.

Still, Rivian’s sales in the United States are unknown, but, according to the website Automotive NewsThe company has a large segment, with 30,240 models leaving stores.

What does that mean?

With the increase in the number of electric models sold, 2023 consolidated the sector and showed the importance of the brand to drive it, which was also reflected in the company’s participation in the space.

The automakers that appeared in the space represent, alone in the USA, more than 316 thousand sales, 94% more than last year’s period. The tendency is that, with more models entering the fray, other brands will join the industry, forcing them all to become more competitive.

It is worth noting that Tesla and BYD did not disclose specific numbers, but they dominate the industry worldwide.
