Average battery capacity converging in top EV markets
German packs take a leap
In Q3 2023, the sales-weighted average EV sold in Germany, including PHEVs and HEVs, had a battery capacity of 42.3 kWh, the highest among the top three EV markets globally.
In second spot, the sales-weighted average EV sold in China during the same period had a battery capacity of 41.7 kWh while that of the US clocked in at 39.0 kWh, the lowest among the top three.
Germany’s move to the front of the pack is even more remarkable when considering that just over a year ago the sales weighted average pack capacity there was nearly 25% lower than that of China.
With Tesla deliveries in the US expected to rebound in Q4, and Rivian R1T and Ford F-150 Lightning sales poised for a strong year end, the US is positioning to pull ahead in Q4.
