BMW i8 US Sales Up 2233% (August US EV Sales Report)

Well, let’s be honest, August was a lame sales month for electric car lovers. There are clear reasons for this. Historically, the two highest-selling electric cars in the US have been the Nissan LEAF and the Chevy Volt. The 2nd-generation Chevy Volt, much improved and even a little cheaper, is just hitting the market, and many […]

Ranking Automakers On Their Electric Commitment (Top 10 List)

This is going to be a fun one. 😀 No matter how this ranking turns out, people are going to have differing opinions, sometimes very strong ones. But that’s the nature of subjective rankings, especially about topics people are very emotional about. Considering how people name their cars, how they will buy from a single […]

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Nearly Knocked Off The Podium In Netherlands!

Well, the Netherlands is certainly turning out to be one of the most interesting electric vehicle markets in the world. It is #2 in terms of electric cars’ percentage of total new car sales, but the cars leading the pack keep changing. The Dutch plug-in hybrid fetish is apparently as strong as ever, and some new […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

Europe Electric Car Sales — Zoe #1, Model S #2, Outlander PHEV #3 In June

Europe electric car sales are in for the month of June from Jose Pontes*. It’s a really interesting market. More interesting than North America, China, or any other, imho. Individual country markets in Europe are getting stronger, but they are very different from one another, so the broader continental charts can vary a lot. In […]

US Electric Car Sales & Other Info In Charts & Graphs

Originally published on Gas2. I’m generally not a fan of infographics — they often pack a little bit of information into a maze of colors. However, I think the one below is super interesting. It uses what us old-schoolers call “charts” and “graphs,” and it uses them to paint a really succinct and interesting picture of […]

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 […]

Volkswagen Golf GTE Takes #1 From Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV In Netherlands

The Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) had been holding the #1 spot in electric car sales in the Netherlands for a while. It’s been doing well in other European markets as well, propelling it to #1 in Europe as a whole. But it has been kicked off its throne in the Netherlands. Another plug-in hybrid (both of which […]

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: […]

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 […]
