Almost three dozen EVs from 21 automotive manufacturers are anticipated to go on sale this yr, in comparison with 17 automobiles from 12 manufacturers in 2020. Notably, this would be the first yr that every one three main automobile classes can be represented: there can be 11 electrical sedans, 13 SUVs, and 6 pickup vans in 2021, whereas solely 10 vehicles and 7 SUVs had been obtainable final yr.
