100% Electric Vehicles

EV & Hybrid Sales Are Up 80,000 Cars In 2013 (August US Sales Update)

The numbers are in for “mass-market” 100% electric vehicle (EV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), and conventional hybrid electric vehicle sales. Well, the numbers are in from everyone but Tesla and Fiat. (The Tesla Model S total in the colorful spreadsheet below is an estimate based on quarterly sales updates, since the rockstar EV company doesn’t report monthly sales.)

As you can see in the embedded spreadsheet, I use green highlighting to show when year-over-year change is positive and I use red highlighting to show when it is negative. Paying attention to that very complicated system, you can see that everything is green in the sales totals for 100% EVs, PHEVs, and conventional hybrids — for both July 2013 and YTD 2013. Pretty nice!

Even better is the tremendous growth that 100% electric vehicles (the greenest of the bunch) have seen. Compared to July 2012, sales are up 529%, and compared to YTD 2012, sales are up 522%.

Otherwise, big stories of the month, imho, were:
