EV Hype | Waiting for a Supercharge

byPrashant Kumar

The pace of electric vehicle (EV) sales growth has slowed down based on the most recent North American EV sales data. Tesla, which owns more than 50% of U.S. EV market share, saw lower profit margins in 2023 because of meaningful price cuts to the Model 3 and Model Y. The broader slowdown can be attributed to many factors like the lack of charging infrastructure, higher interest rates and market saturation among enthusiasts.

Does this mean EV hype has run out of gas? Unlikely. Although the EV adoption rate has slowed in the near term, the inevitability of price and range parity will supercharge EV sales near the end of the decade. EPA regulation to reduce tailpipe emissions would create further tailwinds for the increase of EV share in new car sales; we forecast this could increase from 9% in 2023 to 50% by 2035. Any meaningful progression in full-self-driving or vehicle autonomy would positively impact our adoption view.
