The EV revolution is here

EV100 Progress and Insights Report 2021

17 February 2021, 0:01 UTC

Despite a turbulent year, major companies from around the world have doubled down on their commitments and action on electric mobility. 

Click to read our Progress and Insights report on how EV100 members are driving the EV revolution.

In just a year, the number of electric vehicles deployed by EV100 members has risen to 169,000, over twice the number from last year. The total number of vehicles committed to be EV by 2030 as part of EV100 commitments has risen by 80% to 4.8 million.

As well as getting EVs on the roads, EV100 members are also using their property portfolios - their offices, factories and stores - to build a network of charging infrastructure that supports their staff and customers to also make the switch to EVs. Across the membership, 6,500 locations have been committed to have charging installed, a 103% increase on last year. There has also been an 84% increase in the number of locations with charging already installed to nearly 2,100, and the number of individual charging points installed has increased by 79% to nearly 16,900.

"Corporate uptake of electric vehicles is on a roll. Despite the uncertainty of 2020, the business community has made remarkable progress in transitioning its fleets. The EV revolution is under way."

Sandra Roling, Head of Transport at the Climate Group

The most significant drivers for companies to transition to electric mobility continues to be reducing greenhouse gas emissions (92%) and reducing air pollution (86%), highlighting that commitment to the climate agenda remains unchanged.

The most significant barriers reported by EV100 members were lack of charging infrastructure (67%), lack of correct vehicle type (64%) and capital cost of EVs (58%), with light-commercial and heavy-duty vehicles cited as the most challenging vehicle types. 

Commercial vans were cited as the most challenging EV vehicle type to procure

In the Progress and Insights Report, we have profiled case studies from four EV100 members that are leading the way, pioneering new approaches and deploying EVs and charging infrastructure at scale.

As we approach the all-important COP26, the report calls for businesses to lead from the front and for every company with a fleet or employee car scheme to join EV100 and commit to going electric.
