The Global EV Outlook is an annual publication that identifies and discusses recent developments in electric mobility across the globe. It is developed with the support of the members of the Electric Vehicles Initiative (EVI).
The transport sector uses little electricity today. It accounts for less than 2% of total global electricity demand, according to the World Energy Outlook. Rail is the largest user, responsible for about 70% of transport electricity demand. Plans for further electrification in railways and new subways, especially in developing economies, may lead to a small increase.
