Accounting for the base rate effect and adoption in absolute numbers, Electric Vehicles have exhibited a significant rise in users in the United States and continental North America.

For instance, in the year 2020, with the effects of the pandemic still looming, the number of Electric Vehicles registered in the United States is approximately three times that of the year 2016.
