20 Biggest Electric Vehicle Companies in the World

In this piece, we will take a look at the 20 biggest electric vehicle companies in the world. For more companies, head on over to 5 Biggest Electric Vehicle Companies in the World.

Courtesy of Elon Musk and Tesla, the electric vehicle segment has become one of the hottest in the world. While electric cars were more in the realm of science fiction just two decades back, now, as Tesla solves some of the hardest manufacturing problems in the world to create a new production system, the electric vehicle space has burgeoned into a growing industry that has captivated governments, consumers, and investors.

This sentiment is also reflected in market research reports which have optimistic growth rates estimated for the industry. A research report from Fortune Business Insights states that the industry was worth $287 billion in 2021 and from then to 2028, it will grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.3% to sit at an estimated $1.3 trillion by the end of the forecast period, making it one of the largest industries in the world. The research firm believes that the growth will be aided by governments that are aiding it through incentives, subsidies, and tax exemptions. These include plans by the U.S. government to build electric vehicle charging stations and the European Union's plans to significantly reduce carbon emissions by 2025.

Global electric vehicle sales touched a whopping 6.9 million in 2021, at a time when the world was recovering from the coronavirus pandemic and this marked a stunning 107% annual growth. In comparison, 66.7 million cars were sold all around the globe in the same year, indicating that there is plenty of room left for EV companies to grow and take the share away from their traditional counterparts.

Today's piece will look at the largest electric vehicle companies in the world, out of which the top players are General Motors Company (NYSE:GM), Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F), and Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA).
