“This year EV fans will be caroling “Go Tell It On The Mountain” to pe’trolls.”

Tweets InsideEVs contributor Mark Larsen who forwarded us these two representations of U.S. plug-in electric vehicle sales.

Above you’ll see cumulative model-by-model U.S. sales to date (through end of November using sales figures obtained via InsideEVs) and below is market share for individual plug-in electric models (again, using InsideEVs sales data).

To check out a recap of November 2014 plug-in sales, and the year-to-date chart -go here.

Can you post something with pure EV numbers? Those are all I take seriously – especially with the stories of Volt fleet cars only using gas.

Micke Larsson

The billion+ EV miles of the combined Volts strongly disagree with you.

Plus the big change isn’t going to be done by BEV’s during the next decade but by 50-90% electrified PHEV’s/EREV’s.

Unless you count effinciency and biofuels that is, which are by far making the largest difference.

US Volts are at about 700 million EV miles.

(chart is at kdawg.com)

Not quite a billion then…yet. 😛 But the point still stands, PHEV’s contribute with EV miles too. 🙂

Sort of hard to exclude the Volt when the top 400 or so are driven around 90% using no gasoline. The fact there are some people that drive only in gasoline mode should not exclude it from such studies, imho.

I would far rather see a current (month or year) sales pie chart than a cumulative sales one. Cumulative charts skew the data towards whoever got there first. Current sales show how well each player is doing in today’s market. The current sales pie chart looks very different than the one above.

The monthly sales reports seem to do a good job of what you’re asking.

I’ll also add that what you’re asking for is available on the bar graph above simply by looking at the slope. The steepest slope has the best increase/rate in month-to-month adoption.

Of all cars sold in the first three quarters of 2014 in the Netherlands, 4.3% were electric or hybrid cars. In the last quarter of 2013, the number was even higher: 15%. The main reason for these very high EV sales in the Netherlands is fiscal measures, says Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, who published the figures.

The number of electric and hybrid cars sold in the last quarter of 2013 was 14,842. The best-selling car was the Mitsubishi Outlander, with 8,039 sales. Most EV’s and hybrids sold in the Netherlands are made in Japan: the Toyota Prius and Nissan Leaf are also popular.

The Netherlands wants to have 200,000 EV’s and hybrids on the road by 2020. Currently it has 70,000, almost 1% of the total.

I’m surprised that Volt’s still lead in cumulative sales. I thought with all the recent monthly sales reports showing the Leaf outselling the Volt that it had surpassed the Volt in cumulative sales. So my wife and I have the best selling plug-in and one of the worst selling plug-in, a 2011 Volt and a 2012 Mitsubishi i-miev. Oh well, it works for us!

That reminds me of years ago when I was a kid, and my brother was complaining that the family car wasn’t a “popular” car.

My dad said “I’ll remember that when you ask to borrow the keys….”

This is sort of interesting, because it gives me a sense of whether what I see on the road is typical, or unusual. Looks like it’s typical.

except that excluding my car (a Cmax) I see more Teslas that Fords.
