In Q1 2023, passenger battery electric vehicle (BEV) sales in Southeast Asia (SEA) experienced a staggering growth of almost 10 times compared to the previous year, according to research by Counterpoint's SEA Passenger Electric Vehicle Model Sales Tracker.

The share of BEVs in total passenger vehicle sales saw significant growth, reaching 3.8%, up from a mere 0.3% one year ago. Meanwhile, the market for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) only saw a modest YoY growth of 5.8%.
