Every month InsideEVs tracks all the plug-in EV sales/deliveries for the United States by automaker and brand. Below, readers can find all the historical EV sales charts for the “current generation” of electric vehicles. Keep in mind that the words sales and deliveries are synonymous. In order for a car to count as SOLD, it has to be paid in full and be in the possession of the consumer.

The current year/month chart and graph are included below, followed by historical charts by year, from 2017 back to 2010.
