Average Plug-In Sales in U.S. – Graphs
One InsideEVs reader, Marc, shared recently a swell idea to present monthly average sales numbers for each plug-in model to better understand the situation.
We didn’t wait long before jumping ahead with a graph – two of them – one since December 2010, and the second from the first 7 months of 2014.
On the first graph, we see that the Chevrolet Volt leads the market to date, with the Nissan LEAF, plug-in Prius and Model S behind, but all still above 1,000 units a month.
Just as interesting is the second graph – with the monthly averages for 2014.
The Nissan LEAF basically is in a class of its own, and is the only EV above the 2,000-units per month mark, while the Chevrolet Volt and Toyota Prius Plug-in are fighting for the second spot at around 1,500.
Tesla remains fourth, while Ford Fusion Energi is approaching as the fifth model over the mark of 1,000 units a month.
We are waiting to see how Ford C-Max Energi and BMW i3 will develop, as the rest of the players seem rather flat.
