    1 USA In the USA in 2021, the purchase of BEV and PHEV is about 310,272  during the first 2 quarters of 2021
    2 USA The global EV sales in 2021 after the first 9 months are about 4.3 million. The automakers are aiming to hit 40 million sales of EVs by the end of 2030
    3 USA The BEV sales in the USA is about 294,218 which include 39,000 sales in the month of August. The total percentage of electrified in the US in Q1 2021 is 7.7% and in Q1 2020 it was only 4.79%. 


    In US, the electric car craze started when Nissan launched its first EV, Leaf in Dec 2010.Although, US was one of the first market to receive an electric car 8 years ago but the EV(BEV+PHEV) share in annual new car sales is still abysmally low.


    The lukewarm interest in EVs can be attributed to extremely slow charging infrastructure growth, limited number of car models on sale, lower gas prices and absence of any EV mandate like China.


    EV sales in US(world`s second biggest EV market) have been driven equally by consumer demand and $7,500 Federal tax credit, unlike China, where EV sales are completely legislation and incentive driven.


    The market for automotive industry and electric vehicles has been growing in the US due to the wide adoption of electric vehicles across the country. Many companies have taken contracts and signed agreements that are associated with development and sale of traction motors with government agencies.

    The EV traction motor market in US is in a growth mode after the launch of mass segment, long range models from Tesla and GM. A strong push for the local traction motor market came in 2018, when Tesla started delivering its mass segment EV,” Model 3”. In 2020 Model Y deliveries started which accounted for 79,000 units, 10,000 lesser than Model 3.


    Among the biggest challenge for the EV traction motor market in US will be the phase out of tax credits.  Tesla has already sold more than 200,000 cars in total, the federal $7,500 tax credit for its cars was cut to $3,750 in January 2019 – and will be further reduced to $1,875 by H2 2019.


    The Detroit Big 3 are coming in to the market. Ford showcased an all-electric F-150, which is their highest selling vehicle.


    Ford is also collaborating with Volkswagen and utilising their MEB platform for their vehicles. Ford launched Mustang Mach E as a SUV to compete with Tesla Model Y. The drive module will be supplied by BorgWarner. Ford has also invested $500 million in Rivian.


    GM launched the Ultium platform which will also have the first wireless BMS in commercial usage. GM plans to launch 22 vehicles on this platform by 2023 including the electric Hummer. GM and LG will collaborate for development of batteries in this platform. The traction motor will be built in house


    An important trend in the global and US EV traction motor market is active collaboration between OEMs and suppliers to produce motors. To know more about global trends, read our report titled Global EV Traction motor market  Honda has setup a company called EM motive with Hitachi to manufacture electric traction motors on a bigger scale, not just to source it for itself but also to sell it to other companies.

    As of March 21, there were 21(BEV +PHEV) car models on sale in US, only 16 are BEV and the rest are PHEVs. The top 5 electric vehicles sold in US included three models from Tesla. Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet.


    In 2020, Tesla accounted for 62% of EV(BEV) sales in 2020 in US. Model 3 alone accounted for sales volume of ~89k units and Tesla Model Y accounted for 79k. Tesla held top 3 positions among most sold plugged in vehicles.


    About 71% of the 3 Tesla models on sale were specced with dual traction motors, giving it a very high 68% market share of US EV traction motor market.


    The coming years, multiple start-ups such as Rivian, Nikola, Lucid etc. will be making their way into the market and will be competing along with big manufacturers who want a share of the plugged-in vehicle market. Hybrid vehicles are also seeing an increased sales across USA.

    The growth in EV traction motor market in US will depend a lot on future policies of the biggest EV adopter state i.e. California. Its Zero Emission vehicle program has been adopted by more than 9 other states in US. 


    In 2018, California Governor signed an executive order with total $2.5B worth investment in electric and hydrogen charging infrastructure. It also set a goal of having five million electric vehicles on the California’s roads by 2030 and is actively promoting electric buses in public transportation fleets.


    The Biden administration plans to electrify the federal fleet and this will push the drive across the country for electric vehicles. The landscape will also affect development of charging stations and other infrastructure. 



    The COVID-19 pandemic has caused sectors around the world to experience disruptions in the supply chain operations due to travel restrictions, lockdowns as well as due to halt in the manufacturing activities.


    Many motor manufacturing and development companies are codependent on raw materials and intermediate products, whose supply disruptions have caused significant impact on the manufacturing and delivery of finished products.


    China and Taiwan are the key electronic and critical parts manufacturers in the world, whose manufacturing units have been under regulation and lockdown disrupting the supply chain of the entire world.


    Due to the travel restrictions and stringent norms put in place in accordance to the pandemic protocol, the import and export of resources across the globe has disrupted causing huge economic losses. Some of the small business units and manufacturers are estimated to have gone out of business or acquired by the lead players of the market.


    However, with the relaxation in the pandemic protocols manufacturing units have started operations in less than 100% capacity which has contributed to the recovery of the market.


    The automotive market suffered significant revenue reduction during the first quarter of the year 2020. The net sales of the company BorgWagner decreased by 43% in the second quarter of 2020 as compared to the year 2019.


    However, the company recovered in the third quarter when the net sales increased by 2%. The company Schaeffler recorded a decrease in the net sales by 22.9% during the first half of the year 2020.


    The market is set to recover due to the expanding demand for zero-emission vehicles globally with massive research and development investments which have been aiming for improved efficiency and performance.


    Traction motors being the major operating parts of an electric vehicle, are likely to drive the expansion of this market. The incentives and subsidies awarded for the purchase of EV across the globe as well as the rising fuel costs for conventional vehicles is expected to enhance the demand for Evs and with further extension, the demand for traction motors.
