If you’re reading this, chances are you don’t need to be convinced that electric cars (especially Teslas) are the future. However, most of us often find ourselves having to explain what’s going on to less-enlightened friends, co-workers and relations. For those who read about electric vehicles only in the mainstream press, it’s easy to get the idea that they still “may not catch on,” or to become concerned about imaginary bugaboos like lithium shortages, exploding batteries, etc.

A picture is worth a thousand words, and a new infographic from Title Pro, a company that offers auto loans online, depicts the accelerating rise of e-mobility in an attractive and fun chart that’s easy to understand. If you don’t have the patience to educate your EV-clueless acquaintances, you could do worse than to show them this infographic.

Those who are just starting to learn about electric driving often fail to understand that the current generation of EVs has been evolving for a decade, and that electrification is not a US-only phenomenon, but is in fact proceeding at a faster pace in Europe and in China’s colossal auto market. Most people also aren’t aware of the large number of plug-in models available. This infographic covers all these bases, weaving a timeline of mobility milestones through a set of charts depicting the geographic spread of EVs and the top models on sale in the US.

No, this graphic was not created by EV experts - it contains a few minor inaccuracies and ambiguous statements - in particular, it fails to dispel the all-too-common confusion among hybrids, plug-in hybrids and pure EVs. However, it’s an accessible plug-in primer for those who are just learning of the existence of plug-in vehicles (and that’s a larger group of people than you might think).

It also has a certain dilettantish charm that, in a way, offers yet another sign of how far electrification has come. Even auto finance companies are finding it necessary to explain the rise of EVs to their customers these days, an indication that the e-mobility revolution is steadily spreading to every niche in the automotive ecosystem.

Puzzling graphic. Last time I checked France, Germany, the Netherlands and Norway were all part of Europe. And yet they're listed separately from Europe. And why is Europe lumped together and compared with other individual countries in the first place? Are we comparing continents or countries here.

What I find interesting is that so many cold weather countries are leading in the adoption of electric vehicles per the "market share" graph.
Norway 34.7%
Iceland 9.0%
Sweden 4.3%
Belgium 2.3%
Switzerland 2.0%
Finland 2.0%
Luxembourg 1.8%
Netherlands 1.7%

At first thought this seems counter-intuitive, as electric cars range suffers in colder climates, but that is offset by the fact that they're much more reliable than ICE cars, especially in cold weather. Gone are frozen radiators and fuel lines!!

While cold weather restricts a battery's ability to release stored energy, it is actually really good for battery longevity. The batteries won't degrade as much or as fast over the years.
