Average Passenger EV Motor Power Up 4% Year-over-Year in September 2019

Nov. 10, 2019

Global average reaches 112.1 kW but varies widely by region

In September 2019, the average passenger EV sold globally (including all BEVs, PHEVs and HEVs) had a peak motor power of 112.1 kW, an increase of 4% over the same month the year prior, according to Adamas Intelligence’s latest ‘EV Motor Power Monthly’ report.

At the high end of the global average, the sales-weighted average motor power in Norway amounted to 181.1 kW in September 2019 on account of the high-proportion of BEVs and PHEVs sold in Norway relative to HEVs – the latter of which often have less powerful motor-generators than the former.

At the other end of the spectrum, the sales-weighted average motor power in Japan amounted to 62.2 kW in September 2019 due to the dominance of HEV sales in Japan’s market relative to BEVs and PHEVs.
