. . . In April 2019, a total of 6.7 GWh of battery capacity was deployed in passenger BEVs, PHEVs and HEVs globally—an increase of 69.4% over the same month the year prior.

This rapid growth in battery capacity deployed stems from strong sales of high-capacity long-range BEVs such as the Tesla Model 3, BYD Yuan, Nissan Leaf and Hyundai Kona, among others, relative to the year prior.

Adamas Intelligence data also indicates that the sales-weighted average battery capacity (in kWh) increased at an equally-impressive 41.6% between April 2018 and April 2019, from 13.7 kWh to 19.4 kWh (taking into account sales of all passenger HEVs, PHEVs and BEVs, combined).
