Global Sales Of Plug-In Electric Cars Hit One Million
HybridCars.com reported on the milestone of one million plug-in electric cars sold worldwide.
Crossing the mark of one million cars took nearly 5 years, counting since broader availability in late 2010. That’s much quicker than in the case of hybrids (over 9 years).
1,000,000 plug-in electric cars
Out of around 1,004,000 sales, Nissan LEAF (nearly 200,000), Chevrolet Volt (nearly 100,000) and Tesla Model S (about 85,000) hold the largest market share.
The US, despite a slow down in sales this year, still lead the world with highest number of plug-ins (about 35% share), although China is shortening the distance at a quick pace.
Third is Japan, but surprisingly fourth is small Norway with population of just a few million.
