Celebrities Raising The Stakes For Electric Vehicles

As we all grow more aware of the environmental concerns that gas-powered vehicles cause, the argument for purchasing an electric vehicle grows.

In 2021 alone, Europe sold over 2 million electric vehicles, and we’re seeing them on the road more and more. When we look at the worldwide scope of electric vehicles, Europe has consistently been one of the leaders in EV sales over the last few years. Projections continue to show the uptrend of electric vehicles. If we look back a decade ago only 120,000 EVs were sold worldwide. Now every quarter, millions of EVs are being purchased and driven all over the world. As more manufacturers are getting EVs produced we’re seeing brands like Tesla, Chevrolet, and Nissan put their variations on the market. As the popularity grows, celebrities are some of the first people to go All-In on EVs because of the financial & environmental advantages of not requiring gas.
