    Pretty amazing how far down the chart GM is. This is probably a result of them emphasizing compliance in some cases rather than full dedication.

    1. Akarius says:

      Thats because the world is way bigger than America…

      1. RexxSee says:

        That’s because USA are the stronghold of Big Oil.

      2. terminaltrip421 says:

        @Akarius I wasn’t aware GM only sold their cars nationally.

        while we’re at it “America” is a misnomer. The Americas include North, South and Central. More appropriately The United States is what you should have said.

        1. SparkEV says:

          “Central America” is a figment of political imagination (like Middle East; it’s Asia!) Only North and South American continents exist.

          USA is United States of America, hence shortened as “America”. No other country has “America” in its name, so calling USA America is valid. I prefer the shorter “US” as it involves less typing, but one could argue there are other “United States” in American continents.

          1. Mikael says:

            Well it would be strange for any country to call itself by the name of a continent. Even if it’s fairly logical why the United States of America sometimes gets shortened to America it creates problems.
            Thankfully no other country has decided to call itself Europe, Asia or Africa.

            It would be much simpler to call it by its name, USA, than by the name of the continent(s).

            The US works perfectly too since no other significant country/region uses that abrivation.

            1. Jeffrey Black says:

              Australia is anisland continent and it has states also

            2. Spider-Dan says:

              The nation of South Africa exists and no one seems to get their knickers in a twist about it.

            3. Spider-Dan says:

              Additionally, the official name of Mexico is “Estados Unidos Mexicanos,” or United Mexican States. So referring to this country as “the U.S.” is just as confusing as referring to it as “America.”

              LMAO. Except Australia, which is a country named after the continent on which it resides… and South Africa, also named after the continent on which it resides.

  2. SparkEV says:

    What’s it like when you remove PH and only consider BEV? For models, Leaf, S, Zoe, i3. For MFR, Nissan, Tesla, Renault, BMW. Interestingly, “big 3” are far behind with FCA (via 500e), GM (SparkEV), Ford (FFE).

    1. Hauer says:

      Then you cannot count the rex models of the i3.

      1. SparkEV says:

        Even excluding REx, BMW and i3 would hold their spot.

    2. MaartenV says:

      Only BEV:
      BYD
      Nissan
      Tesla
      Renault
      Volkswagen
      BMW

      1. Mikael says:

        BYD would drop down below Nissan and Tesla for BEVs only.

      2. SparkEV says:

        VW ahead of BMW? Also, I didn’t think BYD sells as many as BMW BEV. What’s the stat?

        1. Emc2 says:

          Here the split is reported for the first half of 2016:

          http://asia.nikkei.com/Business/AC/BYD-profit-jumps-380-on-strong-eco-car-sales

          49,000: 22,000 all electric vehicles and 27,000 plug-in hybrids.

    3. jim stack says:

      I agree, they should have hybrids on a separate count and chart. The Chevy SPARK EV should be on this list as it’s the best value of any EV if it meets your needs. Very low cost and batteries that appear to last forever.
      The BOLT and others will soon be at the top with no room for hybrids. Range is increasing as costs go down.

  3. Jeffrey Songster says:

    Renault/Nissan should be combined… and you could even argue Mitsubishi with them as well… which would put them clearly in 1st. Ghosn plays chess… they will be leveraging their investments soon. As soon as folks see the Bolt and Model III… They will be updating.

  4. Peter says:

    Yes but a Tesla costs 3 times more than a Nissan Leaf.
    Value and markup should also be considered.
