Sep. 17, 2019

In Asia-Pacific, over 100% more battery capacity deployed in June 2019 than in June 2018

In June 2019, 6.6 GWh of battery capacity was deployed in newly-sold passenger EVs in Asia-Pacific, an increase of 46.6% over the month prior, and a 103.4% increase over the amount deployed in June 2018, according to Adamas Intelligence’s recent ‘EV Battery Capacity Monthly’ report (download a sample report here).

This increase was led primarily by strong growth in battery capacity deployed in China, followed by rising deployment in Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand – markets that collectively made up 99.8% of all battery capacity deployed in the Asia-Pacific region in June 2019.

In China, a total of 6.2 GWh of battery capacity was deployed in newly-sold passenger EVs in June 2019, a 50.4% increase over the amount deployed the month prior, and a 119.0% increase over the amount deployed in June 2018.

In Japan, a total of 205 MWh of battery capacity was deployed in newly-sold passenger EVs in June 2019, a 17.9% increase over the total amount deployed the month prior, and a 15.9% increase over the total amount deployed in June 2018.

In South Korea, a total of 136 MWh of battery capacity was deployed in newly-sold passenger EVs in June 2019, 16.7% less than the total amount deployed the month prior, and 28.8% less than the total amount deployed in June 2018.

In Australia, a total of 27 MWh of battery capacity was deployed in newly-sold passenger EVs in June 2019, a 56.4% increase over the amount deployed the month prior, and a 25.2% increase over the amount deployed in June 2018.

Lastly, in New Zealand, a total of 13 MWh of battery capacity was deployed in newly-sold passenger EVs in June 2019, a 101.4% increase over the amount deployed the month prior, and a 149.2% increase over the amount deployed in June 2018.
