Plug-in electric car sales are taking off, and this International Energy Agency’s sales demographic chart shows the progress being made by both all-electric (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid (PHEVs) vehicles.

The first million plug-ins sold mark was crossed in 2015 (and ended the year at some 1.15 million cumulative).

IEA’s graph interestingly breaks down sales by countries with the largest share – the U.S. at 400,000 was market leader at the end of 2015, but China is growing fast and will pass the US soon.

The only question now is whether or not this year we will celebrate 2 million plug-ins on the roads, or if we will need a few more months in early 2017 to reach the mark.

Only really interested in the BEV line… which might get to the 1 million… yeeh

Interesting that BEVs make up more than half the sales.

Sure looks like the curve is on a great path to double soon.

California’s $2500 rebate is gone!!! Hopefully, we get new funds next year. How much does it affect the number one EV market in the world?

China? not very much.

Exponential growth overall but US looks linear which needs to change .

Good observation! Things will heat up with the Bolt and Model 3. (I think Bolt is a terrible name, but I like the car).
