The Nissan LEAF Crossed The 3,000 Unit Sold Mark For The 4th Time In 2014 In December (Scott F.)
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.
