Electric Vehicles (EV) comprised of 1.6% of all US vehicle sales compared to 1.1% for manual transmission vehicles. All indications suggest that this trend is likely to stick with a number of EV vehicles set to appear from both new and existing manufacturers.


In fact, the 2020 Superbowl featured prominent placement of EVs including vehicles from Audi (e-tron Sportbak), GM (Hummer EV), Porsche (Taycan), and Ford (Mustang SUV).
