Comparing C-Max Energi To Nissan LEAF

Originally published on CleanTechnica. The moment I got in the spacious canopy of the LEAF, moving effortlessly with a unique and agile responsiveness, I changed. With a softer drive, the LEAF is as easy as cars get. I think it is the most naturally cooperative car to drive. Until the Model 3 or 2018 LEAF […]

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, […]

US Electric Vehicle Sales Update (September EV Sales)

Above are four charts you can toggle between. You can see that Tesla Model S (and Fiat 500e) sales are absent. Unfortunately, Tesla and Fiat don’t report their month sales. With Tesla now delivering vehicles to Europe, China, and Japan, and only reporting total sales each quarter, it is really too much of a guessing […]

Nissan LEAF Lands Largest Sales Month Ever (EV Sales Report)

The Nissan LEAF has been crushing it this year in sales. It is far-and-away the leader in electric car sales for the year to date, sitting at 16,853 compared to the Chevy Volt’s 11,598 and the Toyota Prius Plug-in’s 9,748. August marked a record month for the Nissan LEAF. With 3,186 cars sold, it enjoyed […]

Nissan Leaf & Ford Continue Their Strong Year (July US Sales Update)

July was a momentous month for Mercedes and me. Mercedes saw the US birth of its first electric vehicle, the Mercedes B Class Electric, and my little girl was born. With this being a monthly electric vehicle sales update, there’s not much more to say about either one here. The Mercedes B Class Electric just […]

Nissan Leaf Stays On Top, Ford Fusion Energi Close Behind (US June EV Sales)

Once upon a time, the US electrified vehicle (EV) sales rivalry was between the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Volt. Now, it seems the Ford Fusion Energi has taken the Volt’s place, but the Nissan Leaf is still clearly on top. Of course, it’s not really clear with the Volt or the Tesla Model S how […]

Nissan LEAF Crushes Competition In March Electrified Vehicle Sales

The Nissan LEAF almost set a new monthly sales record in March, ending just 22 sales short of its December sales total at 2,507. Nonetheless, it was enough to crush the competition. The Chevy Volt ended the month with 1,478 sales, which happens to be the exact same number as it had in March 2013. […]

US Nissan LEAF Sales Increase 118%, LEAF Holds #1 Spot In US Electric Car Sales

Following its market-leading position in January US electric car sales, the Nissan LEAF took #1 again in February. (Though, it was just a little above our estimate for Tesla Model S deliveries*, and if Tesla wasn’t supply-limited and shipping cars to Europe, it would likely have landed at #1.) The top 6 models were actually […]

World Electrified Vehicle Sales (2013 Report)

First of all, let me note that these numbers below are not official and are surely a little imperfect (even more so than US EV sales numbers). However, they come from the most complete roundup of electrified vehicle (EV) sales I’ve seen. Frankly, I haven’t seen any other effort that tries to pull together EV […]

Nissan Leaf Dominates In January 2014 Electric Car Sales (Charts)

Electric car sales numbers are in for the US! I’ve created a few charts below to share the big picture for January 2014 versus January 2013. However, I’m changing one huge thing this year with these monthly electric car sales updates — I’m dropping the conventional hybrids. Frankly, I just don’t care about them, since […]

Ford Hybrid & EV Sales Continue To Surge

Breaking away from the fold, Ford’s US hybrid and electric car sales actually surged in September 2013 (compared to September 2012) despite Labor Day “falling in August” on the auto industry sales calendar (for who knows what reason). Counter to the hit Toyota, GM, and Honda took, Ford’s hybrid and electric car sales rose 112.55% in […]

Ford’s Hybrid & Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Arrival

Ford has not historically been a leader in hybrid or electric vehicle technology. Toyota and Honda very clearly led the introduction of mass-market hybrid electric vehicles. More recently, Nissan and GM have led the burgeoning 100% electric and plug-in electric vehicle markets. But maybe Ford actually had a strategy. (Yes, I generally give people the […]

Ford Hybrid Vehicle Sales Surpass Previous Full-Year Record In Just The First Five Months Of 2013

Ford sold more hybrid vehicles in just the first five months of 2013 than it did in any previous full years. The first five months of 2013 saw Ford sell over 37,000 hybrid vehicles. That even beats Ford’s best year ever back in 2010, when it sold 35,496 hybrid vehicles.
