Plugless Power Gets Big “Plug” + Drops Prices

We’ve covered Plugless Power for years, but it seems like it’s been awhile. Basically, Plugless Power is one of the top providers of wireless home EV charging stations. (Actually, it claims to be the provider of the world’s first wireless EV charging station.) Someone from Plugless Power (or, more accurately, Evatran) recently dropped me a line […]

High-End Electric Cars Up, Everything Else Down (July US Sales Update)

Well, that was a crappy month… if you’re an electric car fan. Almost across the board, US electric car sales were down in July 2015 compared to July 2014. However, three models were up — the Tesla Model S ($75,000), the Mercedes B-Class Electric ($41,450), and the BMW i3 (42,400). This actually matches fine with […]

EV Owner & Lessee Survey

I’ve been long planning to do an EV owner and lessee survey like this, so I am super eager to see the results. (I’m going to have a hard time not watching them obsessively as they come in.) But the key, of course, is getting EV owners and lessees to complete the survey. If you drive […]

Quickest Electric Car To 60 MPH? (Top 17 List)

Originally published on Gas2. What’s the fastest electric car on the market? I think you can guess, but what about #2–17? First of all, let’s get a little perspective in here. A car’s quickness is generally rated by how fast it goes from o mph to 60 mph (or 0 km/h to 100 km/h outside of […]

Nissan LEAF & Chevy Volt Sales Down As Buyers Wait For New Models?

Unfortunately, June was a pretty poor month for US electric car sale when compared to June 2014. Of course, most electric cars on the market are compliance cars, which means that their makers don’t try all that hard to sell them (many dealers actually try to dissuade potential buyers from buying them), come at a worse […]

10 Best Hybrid Cars

I’m working on a couple of pieces outside the news cycle this weekend — “Best Hybrid Cars” and “Best Electric Cars.” The pieces are ones that I’ve considered for a long time, but generally felt hesitant/unequipped to write, but I’m taking a plunge now. Unfortunately, I have not yet driven all hybrid cars on the market, and […]

Chevy Spark EV Shocks, Takes #3 In April US Electric Car Sales

100% electric car sales were up 31% in the USA in April 2015 compared to April 2014, and sales from January through April were up 63% (with my estimate for Tesla Model S sales included). Overall, sales of all plug-in cars were up 9% in April, and 36% for January through April. I’ll admit it, though: […]

Tesla 70D, Tesla Pricing Controversy, Cadillac CEO Defends Electric Lineup, & 2016 Chevy Malibu Hybrid (Cleantech Talk #9)

First of all, if you missed last week’s Cleantech Talk episode, I’m sure it’s one you don’t want to miss — be sure to listen to Chris and I interview Tesla Cofounder and Wrightspeed Founder & CEO Ian Wright. This week’s Cleantech Talk podcast was an especially interesting one, imho. The first story Chris DeMorro and I discussed […]

Nissan LEAF, Tesla Model S, & BMW i3 Continue Their Dominance (US Electric Car Sales Update)

I was just thinking about writing yet another article about compliance cars — basically, I was going to pose a question about when we can expect to see most car manufacturers actually aim to sell the electric cars they produce. While many manufacturers now produce electric cars and pretend to support them, they aren’t actually interested in producing enough […]

Tesla, Nissan, & BMW Take Gold, Silver, & Bronze (US February EV Sales)

US February electric car sales are in, and the medals go to Tesla (Gold), Nissan (Silver), and BMW (Bronze). They were head and shoulders above the rest. Of course, when it comes to Tesla, it was an estimate (as requested by readers). My estimates for Tesla are based off of a number of official statements […]

US Electric Car Sales Increase Just 9% In January 2015

Compared to January 2014, January 2015 was not an explosively bigger year for US electric car sales, unfortunately. January is typically a crappy month for electric car sales, and this year was no exception. Down from 9,259 total electric car sales in December, the US saw 6,164 sales in January. One model that did see […]

Nissan LEAF Takes 30% of Non-Tesla US Electric Car Market in 2014

Update: My totals (+ tables & charts) have been updated in an article about Tesla sales: Tesla Sales — Updates & Estimates Time to wrap up reporting of 2014 electric car sales. I’ll run down the highlights below, but first, I’ve got a very important matter that I want your opinion on. Assuming Tesla doesn’t start reporting […]

Nissan LEAF Breaks November EV Sales Record

To no one’s surprise, the Nissan LEAF led US electric car sales in November, with a total of 2,687 sales. It commanded ⅓ of the electric car market in November (excluding Tesla, of course, since we don’t have Tesla numbers and “estimating” them is now just a big guessing game). Nissan also set a new November electric […]

Nissan LEAF, Chevy Volt, & BMW i3 Dominate Plug-in Car Sales in October

Time for another electric car sales report. As you can see in the charts and table below, the Nissan LEAF again led electric car sales in the United States. The Chevy Volt took its routine second position, and the BMW i3 came in third… from available electric car sales data. As I stated last month, […]
