EVXX offers access to the 5 largest pure electric vehicle companies globally – current holdings include Tesla, Nio, Rivian, LI Auto and Xpeng

MIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$EVXX #ETFs–Defiance, a leading thematic ETF provider, today announced the launch of EVXX, the Defiance Pure EV ETF. EVXX is the first ETF in the electric vehicle (“EV”) sector to target pure exposure to EV manufacturers, providing long-term investors with direct and concentrated access to the fastest-growing electric vehicle companies.

Many countries have already begun to outpace early estimates for EV adoption. EV sales are expected to grow 35% this year to reach 14 million units after a record-breaking 2022.1 This explosive growth is poised to continue as China has already surpassed its 20% EV share target, two years ahead of its 2025 target date.2 The United States government is also set to invest $15B in EV infrastructure.3 More than 10 million EVs were sold globally in 2022 and revenue in the EV market is projected to reach $561.3B in 2023.4 . By 2025, BNEF estimated global EV sales to reach around 23 million units annually, and by 2030, they have the potential to save at least 5 million barrels of oil per day.5

“We continue to hear from investors that there is demand for a pure EV ETF, which captures this emerging megatrend without diluting the purity of the product with traditional semiconductor and auto stocks, which have little or no EV sales. Defiance is thrilled to be bringing EVXX to market to fill that void,” said Sylvia Jablonski, Chief Executive Officer at Defiance ETFs.
