Electric vehicles use one or two electric traction motors for propulsion instead of a conventional transmission unit solely powered by an internal combustion engine. Traction motors are either powered by rechargeable battery packs or through an internal combustion engine that charges the vehicle's battery pack, which runs the traction motor and propels the vehicle. Such vehicles are known as hybrid electric vehicles.

In battery electric vehicles, the battery pack is recharged by plugging into a charging station connected to the national power grid. Electric vehicles are used for private and public transportation, shared mobility, micro-mobility, logistics, and industrial applications. The adoption of electric vehicles is on the rise due to growing concerns regarding the negative environmental effects of vehicular emissions, supportive government initiatives to decarbonize transportation, and increasing efforts by major automotive OEMs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transform their product line-ups into green and clean environment-friendly vehicles.

Impact of COVID-19 on the European Electric Vehicle market

The COVID-19 pandemic caused a widespread economic downturn as several countries imposed strict lockdowns to contain the infection, resulting in the closure of manufacturing industries and disruptions in supply chains and production schedules. There has been a significant impact on technology supply chains globally. The economic slowdown has significantly disrupted the automotive industry, causing a rapid decline in light vehicle sales. The light vehicles market suffered a decline in revenue close to 20% in 2020.

Furthermore, shifts in consumer purchasing behavior due to the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic are expected to have significant consequences for the industry's near-future growth. Uncertainty regarding the duration of lockdowns and supply-chain disruptions made it more difficult for industry players to anticipate the industry's recovery. This crisis caused structural shifts that had significant implications on the market.

In Europe, during the lockdowns, manufacturing facilities, supply chains, and consumer demands were paralyzed in the first half of 2020. The EV market in Europe was moderately affected. As a result, the market is estimated to show a slow recovery from 2021. The government supported the automotive industry by regulating policies that benefitted both consumers and manufacturers. Incentives and subsidies were notably increased on purchasing an EV in countries such as Germany, the U.K., and Norway. Also, the prices for batteries continued to reduce, which helped increase the adoption rate of EVs in these countries. The sale of EVs was doubled in 2020, as compared to the previous year. Developed countries such as Germany, France, the U.K., and Norway commanded most of the stakes in this sale. Thus, the market is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period.

In addition, the inclusion of EV infrastructure investments into COVID-19-related stimulus packages by European governments is expected to boost the growth of EVs in the future. For instance, in June 2020, Germany proposed EUR 130 billion (USD 145.8 billion) stimulus future package, featuring at least EUR 50 billion (USD 56 billion) for climate-related spending. It includes plans to boost electric vehicle sales, improve building energy efficiency, enhance public transport networks, develop hydrogen infrastructure, and shift the cost of renewables subsidies onto general taxation. Subsidies for electric vehicles were also doubled. The program includes an extra EUR 2.5 billion (USD 2.8 billion) for EV infrastructure, including EV charging stations.

European Electric Vehicle Market Overview

The overall European EV market is segmented based on vehicle type, propulsion type, power output, charging standard, end-use, and country. The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market at the country level.
