Last year, 2021, was one of the biggest years to date when it comes to EV adoption. This is rather interesting since we've been in the midst of a global pandemic, not to mention a chip shortage and a general scarcity of automotive-related parts and supplies.
While many automakers saw some of their worst total vehicles sales numbers in many years, some of the same manufacturers sold more electric cars than they've ever sold in the past. Moreover, while car brands across the globe struggled to build and sell many cars, Tesla broke production and sales records yet again.
Lease Fetcher reached out to us to share some data related to the world's most anticipated and desired EVs. The data does look at Google search volume for EVs that haven't yet come to market, and it also analyses data related to the desirability of current electric cars.
The website used Google search data for electric cars in 168 countries across the globe. As it turns out, the Tesla Roadster topped all other models, with a whopping 8,532,000 Google searches in 2021 alone, which comes out to an average of over 700,000 searches per month. It's too bad the Roadster's production and delivery dates are nowhere in sight.
While the Tesla Roadster was the most searched EV in the UK, the Tesla Cybertruck took the win in the US, where the Roadster took second place to the unique electric pickup truck. As far as global search volume is concerned, the Cybertruck took second place overall, with 7,296,000 searches.
Rounding out the top five "most anticipated EVs" in global Google search volume, we have the Apple Car, BMW i4, and Chevrolet Silverado EV. Check out the chart below:
The top "most desired EVs" are as follows:
