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

The Nissan LEAF has been crushing it this year in sales.

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 […]

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 […]

Electric Car Sales Up 300% In 2013

100% electric car sales are up about 300% in 2013 so far, while plug-in hybrid electric car sales are up about 31% for the same period. Note that Tesla doesn’t report its sales on a monthly basis — only on a quarterly basis — so my numbers for its sales are an estimate (but a […]

Most Fuel Efficient Cars In 2014

Update January 5, 2015: a new list and article has been published of the “Most Fuel Efficient Cars In 2015 (USA).” It’s quite similar, but there are a few changes in the cars on the list. The most “fuel efficient” cars in the US are all plug-in cars, of course. The top 11 are 100% electric cars, […]

100% Electric Car Sales Grow 361% In 2013 (YTD)

I would say that the strong growth of 100% electric car and plug-in hybrid electric car US sales is really no longer a story — they’ve been growing strongly month after month without a break. However, the odd thing is that there’s still all kinds of anti-hype. There are a lot of people in the […]

Infographic: Which Electric Cars Are Most Popular On Social Media?

Social media activity related to certain electric vehicles on the market was recently gathered by researchers. I wasn’t surprised to see a high-end performance/luxury car get the highest number of social media mentions. That would be the Tesla Model S, at 49,967 mentions in the study period. The BMW i3 received the second-most positive sentiment (38%). […]

100% Electric Car Sales Up 447.95% In US In 2013

August and September 2013 were funky months in the US auto industry. Basically, the reason for this is the auto industry’s funky calendar. The “last day” of the previous month on the auto industry’s calendar is actually the first weekday of the next calendar month. Because that “last day of the month of August” happened […]

The Good Things About Compliance Cars

I recently called out Honda and Fiat for making their first electric cars — the Honda Fit EV and the Fiat 500e — compliance cars. Basically, I was critical of Honda and Fiat for taking that path. However, many people consider compliance cars to be the result of bad policy. I don’t subscribe to that view, […]

The numbers are in for “mass-market” 100% electric vehicle (EV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), and conventional hybrid electric vehicle sales.
