Electric vehicle came into power in mid 19th century when electricity was the most preferred source of energy for motor vehicles. However, the 20th century witnessed discovery of vast petroleum resources which then became a popular fuel for vehicles. Recent demand for sustainable source of energy has again led to the growing demand for electrical vehicle and they are now playing a strong role in controlling pollution.
The sector is driven by the Electric Vehicles Initiative, a multi-government policy forum which promotes adoption of electric vehicles across the world. The forum presently has ten member countries: Canada, China, France, Germany, USA, Sweden, UK, Japan, Norway and Netherlands.

A total of 873,000 electric and plug in vehicles were sold in 2016. In 2017 sales till August crossed over 649,000 units.
