A total of 91,300 plug-in electric vehicles were sold in Europe through the first 6 months of 2016, making for a 21% year-on-year increase (as compared to the same time period in 2015), according to the most recent figures from EV Obsession and CleanTechnica partner EV Volumes. In this context, “plug-in electric vehicles” refers to all-electric (EV) and plug-in […]

7 Cool Electric Vehicle Charts From POD Point

As noted in this article, I recently interviewed the CEO and founder of POD Point, Erik Fairbairn. POD Point is the top supplier of EV charging equipment in the UK, so it has quite a bit of useful data on hand. Following our interview, Erik passed along an interesting infographic, and I thought it would be fun […]

Nearly 200,000 electric vehicles (all-electrics + plug-in hybrids) were delivered to buyers in Europe during 2015 — roughly double the figure for 2014 — according to EV-Volumes, an EV sales database and consultancy that has partnered with EV Obsession and CleanTechnica. Quarter 4 2015 was, in particular, a time of strong sales for the European market (as you can see […]

Uniti — Swedish Electric Car Aims To Take City Car Market

Seems like every week there’s yet another new “game-changing” electric vehicle (EV) startup. And that’s a good thing! In my opinion, anyways, as it means that the rate of growth in the sector is really starting to pick up and there’s growing interest here from investors, designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and customers. Besides, some of the […]

Volvo: Electric Bus Use Can Cut City Transport Costs By Millions

A new analysis — taking into consideration such variable factors as travel time, associated emissions, overall energy use, noise, taxes, resource use, etc — has determined that electric buses could allow cities in Sweden (and elsewhere) to save the equivalent of around SEK 100 million a year (assuming a city population size of 500,000). The new […]

Electric Car Incentives & Market Uptake By Country

Incentives are an interesting thing. Sometimes, the ones you think will work the best don’t work too well. Sometimes, ones you don’t think will have as much effect end up having a huge effect. Sometimes, incentives work great with one population but don’t work so well with another population. Electric car incentives are so varied by […]

EV Infographic Chock-Full Of Stats

Originally published on Gas2. I’m fairly turned off to infographics these days, as many are simply a lot of colors and squiggly lines with little substance. However, some really good ones come across my desk from time to time. Thanks to a good friend, Amber Archangel, I’ve got a great one to share. The infographic was created […]

Europe Electric Car Sales Up 77% In 2014

It’s hard to get European-wide numbers for electric car sales. In fact, it’s hard to get numbers for almost any country in Europe. A Norwegian electric vehicle association was publishing Norway’s numbers regularly for awhile, as was a German car association for Germany, but neither of them have done so in recent months. Thankfully, I am able to obtain […]

In one more Scandinavian electrified vehicle registrations report, Sweden shows its strong preference for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, especially the beautiful Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in, which takes the crown with a whopping 60% of the EV market. The only other car to break 10% market share was the Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid (14% market share). For January through April, […]

Sweden Has Strong Plug-in Car Sales Month, Plug-in Hybrids Still King

Thanks to a CleanTechnica reader, I now have a very reliable source for monthly plug-in car sales data from Sweden, one of the strongest plug-in car markets. The Swedish market is an interesting one, as it’s one of just a few countries in which plug-in hybrids beat out 100% electric cars. You can see that, […]

EV Market Share Leaders (Top Countries For EV Market Share)

I recently figured out electric vehicle market share for 17 European countries, the US, and Japan for an ABB Conversations article I wrote (full disclosure: I am compensated by ABB for articles written on that site). The results are very interesting, in my opinion, so I figured I’d drop the charts in here as well. […]
