EV Battery Capacity Deployment Up 89% Year-over-Year in 2019 H1

Sep. 23, 2019

46.3 GWh deployed in newly-sold passenger EVs in 2019 H1, 89% more than was deployed in 2018 H1

In 2019 H1, global battery capacity deployed in all newly-sold passenger EVs combined amounted to 46.3 GWh, an increase of 89% over the same period the year prior, according to a new (free) report from Adamas Intelligence, titled ‘State of Charge: EVs, Batteries and Battery Materials‘.

This increase is attributed to strong EV sales growth overall (25% over the same period the year prior) coupled with a boost in BEV sales relative to HEV sales, translating to a 52% increase in the average EV’s battery capacity over the same period, from 12.9 kWh to 19.7 kWh.

As supplier to Tesla (and Toyota), Panasonic again deployed more battery capacity than its peers in 2019 H1, just as it did in 2018 H1, followed by CATL, LG Chem and BYD.
