Michigan EV Landscape

Battery Electric Vehicles Produced in Michigan

The following indicators provide a status of Michigan’s mobility and electrification industry and measure progress in electric vehicle technology, infrastructure, and investment. Though Michigan is a leader in the industry’s evolution, there is plenty of work to do to ensure it remains at the forefront. These metrics will be updated and progress will be tracked semi-annually. 

As the automotive and mobility industry continues to transition from internal combustion engines toward more environmentally sound transportation, it is essential for Michigan to develop and deploy strategies that keep the state competitive in the global electric and autonomous vehicle market.
