Passenger EV Battery Capacity Deployed in China Up 439% YoY in January 2019
3.27 GWh of passenger EV battery capacity deployed in China in January 2019
Despite being a seasonally-slow month for the EV market, in January 2019, 3.27 GWh of passenger EV battery capacity was deployed in China, an increase of 439% over January 2018 levels, inferring from a model-by-model build-up using Adamas Intelligence’s ‘EV Battery Capacity and Battery Metals Tracker’
China was responsible for 59% of all passenger EV battery capacity deployed globally in January 2019, almost double the 34% share that China contributed in January 2018.
Even more remarkable, from January 2018 through January 2019, the sales-weighted average passenger EV battery capacity in China increased by a staggering 95%, from 14.9 kWh to 29.1 kWh, meaning that the average EV registered in China in January 2019 contained nearly double the mass of battery metals/materials as the year prior.
