EV Sales in US up 54.5% YoY in 2022; Tesla Market Share at 50.5%

  • BEVs accounted for 80% of EV sales in the US in 2022.
  • In 2022, Tesla captured over 50% of the US EV market.
  • EV sales are expected to exceed 1.9 million units in 2023.

New Delhi, London, San Diego, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, Beijing, Seoul – April 4, 2023

Passenger electric vehicle* (EV) sales** in the US grew 54.5% YoY in 2022, according to the latest research from Counterpoint’s Global Passenger Electric Vehicle Model Sales Tracker. Battery EV (BEV) sales grew by almost 70% YoY to account for more than 80% of all EV sales in 2022. Tesla remained the market leader in 2022 with more than 50% market share. Tesla sold more cars than the other 17 automotive groups combined.

Commenting on the market dynamics, Research Analyst Abhik Mukherjee said, “Although overall passenger vehicle sales in the US declined in 2022, EV sales increased to represent 7% of all US passenger vehicle sales. Tesla is dominating the US EV market while other automotive giants like Ford, General Motors, Stellantis, Volkswagen and Hyundai are struggling to provide strong competition. But still, we are seeing new players like Lucid Motors, Karma, Fisker and Vinfast entering the US EV space, underlining the market’s potential. Moreover, with the recent price cuts by Tesla and all versions of Tesla’s Model Y becoming eligible for the EV tax credit subsidy, it is expected that Tesla will take an even higher market share.”

The top 10 best-selling EV models accounted for 69% of total EV sales in the US. All four Tesla models were present in the top-10 bestseller list for 2022. Hyundai’s IONIQ 5 and Kia’s EV6 made a significant impact, entering the list within a year of their US launch.

Discussing the market outlook, Research Director Jeff Fieldhack said, “High interest rates due to macroeconomic pressures during 2022 negatively affected vehicle sales in the US. In 2023, EV sales are expected to reach over 1.9 million units but only if economic headwinds do not severely impact the market, like in 2022. With automotive OEMs and battery manufacturers joining hands to set up battery manufacturing plants across the US, the battery supply chain is expected to become smoother and component costs will moderate, making the potential US EV market greater than 10 million per year by 2030.”
