The European EV market had 29,000 registrations in March, up 30% over the same month last year, making it the third best month ever, only behind the incentive-inflated Decembers of 2015 (34,000) and 2016 (30,000). At this pace, the European EV market is set to reach the 300,000 units milestone by year end. Furthermore the EV market […]

Once upon a time, there was an epic monthly sales battle in the US between the Nissan LEAF and the Chevy Volt. They were neck and neck for ages, sometimes changing places several months in a row. Nowadays, the market is growing, and more relevant is probably looking at the Chevy Bolt, Chevy Volt, Ford […]
Plug In Adventures has modified a Nissan LEAF for the 10,000 long London to Mongolia rally this summer. The drivers will chart where charging locations can be found along the way to help other electric car adventurers.
Wireless charging website Plugless says US electric car drivers have logged over 11 billion miles since 2010 when the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf first went on sale. The Tesla Model S and Model X are catching up fast.
Aside from Tesla topping the US electric car sales chart (and my postulations about that), there were some other interesting stats and takeaways from March US electric car sales. The first big one that stands out to me is that the Nissan LEAF freakin’ beat the Chevy Bolt! I don’t think any of our readers would have […]
Rolling through another month of US electric car sales, I’m struck again by how much a few models dominate sales. Actually, I’m struck by how much Tesla’s two high-end (expensive) cars dominate US electric car sales. Before I go further, I should note that Tesla’s sales numbers are not official — they are estimated based on […]
The European electric car market had over 16,000 registrations last month, up 20% over February 2016, with YTD numbers up 38% year over year (YoY). The market is set to surpass 300,000 units (on track for 310,00) by year end. While the electric car share is firmly north of the 1% mark in the broader car market, this […]
The Japanese electric vehicle market is comprised almost entirely of Japanese auto manufacturers (unsurprisingly), which makes the market an interesting contrast to free-for-all markets like the US. The Nissan LEAF has over the past few years more or less dominated the market. Though, the first-generation Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid (PHEV) had respectable sales as well — which makes the […]
Also published on CleanTechnica. See our Electric Car Sales page for a deeper look at US, European, and Chinese electric car sales. US electric car sales jumped approximately 68% in February 2017 vs February 2016. Fully electric car sales were up 74%, while plug-in hybrid sales were up 61%. For the first two months of the year, that puts […]
The European EV market had some 19,000 registrations last month, up 31% year over year (YoY), with the Renault Zoe starting the year in the leadership position again. #1 Renault Zoe – With the ZE40 version finally arriving to selected markets, registrations were up 80% YoY to 2,602 units, jumping straight into the leadership in […]
Nissan execs have revealed that the company will begin testing its self-driving Leaf prototypes in London this month, with the UK intended to serve as a real-world testbed for the company’s autonomous technology development.
I recently arrived at a Nissan dealer to get my service check for the Nissan LEAF. What’s involved with the all-electric Nissan LEAF servicing (approximately 1 year and 3 months after getting the car)?
US electric car sales continue to climb to new heights in 2017. Growing 59% year over year (YoY), approximately 12,000 electric cars were sold across the country in January, accounting for approximately 1% of US auto sales.
The European EV market had approximately 30,000 registrations last month, down 11% over the same month last year. This sales slip, however, had to do with the incentives-derived sales rush of the last quarter of 2015. Last month, though, the top spots were yet again influenced by the Dutch market sales peak: #1 VW Passat GTE – […]
Below is an electric cars list of the fully electric cars for sale in 2017 in the USA. This article will be updated as new electric cars arrive on the market, such as the coming Tesla Model 3. The first prices listed are base prices before the federal tax credit. In parenthesis are prices after the maximum […]
The EV market as a whole saw 30% growth for 2016 (compared to 2016) and 51% for December 2016 (compared to December 2015), which would be great for normal cars but may seem a bit weak on the surface for those of us who know how fast EV sales should and could be growing. But remember that 2016 was more of a prep year than a breakout year. This year (2017) and next (2018) are likely to be the big breakout years, thanks to the real arrival of the Chevy Bolt and the expected arrival of the Tesla Model 3.
This article is also being published on CleanTechnica, the EV Sales blogspot, and our Electric Car Sales page. The European EV market had more than 18,500 registrations last month, 5% down over the same month last year. This sales slip has to do with the incentives-derived sales rush in the last quarter of 2015 in some […]
Via CleanTechnica: Nissan LEAF sales in the UK continue growing strongly, despite the fact that a major refresh of the model will likely be released within a year or so. During the month of November, the LEAF was actually the fastest growing model, by sales numbers, in the whole of the UK’s competitive C-segment (small family car […]
