Infographic: Electric Drive Sales Dashboard December 2014
3 Y BY MARK KANE
Here is the Electric Drive Transportation Association’s infographic on the electric car market at the end of 2014.
According to the data, 11,286 plug-in cars were sold in December, which is a lot less than our own 12,874 (mostly because of our sales assumption that ~3,500 Tesla Model S sedans sold was more aggressive than the data provided to EDTA by Baum/HybridCars who estimate smooth month-to-month results over each quarter).
Editor’s Note: EDTA’s December (and YTD) estimates are typically slightly different than InsideEVs, as most publications don’t allow for the monthly variance in Tesla’s US deliveries.
Most of the sales – 7,419 were all-electric cars, while plug-in hybrids counted just 3,867.
In the whole of 2014, sales reached 118,773, 23% more than in 2013. (InsideEVs pegged 2014 sales at 119,710 – so fairly close overall)
In two months from now, the mark of 300,000 cumulative sales should fall.
