If you’d like to access any of our previous monthly report cards, click here for the full archiveIn addition, for those who appreciate visuals, every month we will also provide an article with sales and market share shown in various charts.

Every month InsideEVs tracks all the plug-in EV sales/deliveries for the United States by automaker and brand. Additionally, readers can find all historical EV sales charts for the “current generation” of electric vehicles by clicking here. Keep in mind, the words sales and deliveries are synonymous. For example, in order for a car to count as SOLD, an owner must buy or lease it, take DELIVERY, and have it in his/her possession.

Also, here’s a deep dive into our estimates and methodology.

The current year/month chart and graph are included below, followed by the previous year’s chart.
