Correct Answer

And here's something for you to take back

According to Fatih Birol, Director General of IEA, every second car sold in China, Europe, and the United States in 2030 will be an electric car.

In 2022, about 10.5 million electric cars were sold globally (8 million fully battery electric cars and about 2.5 million hybrids). The total number of cars sold in 2022 were approx 75 million - so currently, one out of 7 cars sold globally is electric, and if the above estimates fructify, we are looking at a dramatic five fold jump in electric car sales over the next 7 years!
