The number of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road has been growing steadily and most forecasts call for rapid acceleration in the years ahead. Europe, for example, saw registrations of electrically-chargeable vehicles jump by 53.3% in the second quarter this year. That boosted their market share from 2.4% in the same quarter last year to 7.2%.
