CleanTechnica Report: Fossil Vehicle Sales Are Officially Now Decreasing In China, Europe, & USA
Sales of fossil-fuelled vehicles are now on the decline in the world’s three largest auto markets, and being replaced by electric vehicles.
For example in China, total light-duty vehicle (LDV) sales declined in 2018 relative to 2017. This was the first year-on-year drop since 1992. Yet, in this shrinking overall auto market, EV sales (including BEVs and PHEVs) almost doubled in volume to 1.1 million, from 600,000 in 2017.
It's interesting this was seen across the markets which is less likely then to be a single year decrease, but I think the proof will only be there once another year's sales are also down. If this is the case it is a bit earlier than I was expecting it to really start showing. It is true too that cars are getting lighter on fuel consumption, although I'm also sure there are probably more cars on the road every year.
