    How Much Oil Are EVs Displacing? – 28,000 barrels a day predicted by the end of 2017 is the short answer – EVs are displacing 17.8 thousand barrels of oil per day as of the end of 2016. We expect global annual EV sales to increase further by 39% in 2017 and increase their fuel displacement values by 60% as BEVs are becoming more popular. – Some perspective now: ~96 million barrels of oil a day, and around 50% of it going for vehicle fuel. 28,000 of half the world’s oil usage is about 0.06% of the supply – not a lot…however…40% a year growth is something to pay attention to. That rate holding would mean no oil for vehicles in 23 years.
