Co-op EVolution: An Accelerating Industry Trend

Market indicators confirm the electric vehicle revolution is moving full speed ahead. CoBank regularly shares new industry insights, reports, podcasts and other resources to help electric co-ops evaluate the challenges and opportunities in the evolving EV market.

Notable EV Trend Indicators

  • According to Bloomberg, 20 million EVs will be on the road globally by mid-2022. (Up from only 1 million EVs on the roads in 2016.)
  • New policy support and greater vehicle model options is poised to significantly increase the number of EV buyers. (One out of every 10 new car sales in 2025 will likely be electric.)
  • The Federal Government is making a historic re-investment in our nation’s roads and electric ‘re-fueling’ stations.
