A couple of premium German plug-ins are finding a strong market in the US – accounting for more than 10% of the models’ sales overall, and more than 15% in April.

The BMW X5 xDrive40e (with up to 14 miles EPA electric range) peaked last month at 17.4% (655) of total BMW X5 sales in the U.S. – worldwide sales nearly reached 10%.

While the Audi A3 Sportback e-tron (with up to 17 miles EPA electric  range) also stayed just over 16% share of all A3 sales in the U.S for April, and 11.4% year to date.

Nearly 1,500 BMW X5 xDrive40e and over 1,200 Audi A3 Sportback e-trons have sold in the first four months of 2016.  Once again, it seems that adding a plug-in option to a premium vehicles is being very well received, helping not only that model’s sales, but EV awareness and acceptance overall at the same time.21

Are the sales all in CA? Because it’s very hard to find any in Pennsylvania.
