Of the U.S. plug-in vehicle (PEV) population, which includes both all-electric and plug-in hybrid light vehicles, nearly two-thirds were assembled in the United States. Ten percent of U.S. PEVs were assembled in Germany, with 9% each coming from Mexico and Japan. Each of the other countries represented less than 4% of the U.S. PEV population.
