Electric Drive Transportation Association released its EV sales infographic for the US with a number of 6,090 plug-in cars sold in January, 3% more than in January 2014. InsideEVs' tally is 5,924.

All-electric cars with 3,977 sales were close to two times more popular than plug-in hybrids - 2,113.

Editor’s Note: EDTA’s January (and YTD) estimates are typically slightly different than InsideEVs, as most publications don’t allow for the monthly variance in Tesla’s US deliveries.

As January isa  slow month, the most important number is 292,480 plug-in cars sold in the US through the end of January. There's a strong chance that in February 300,000 will be exceeded.
