U.S. Chevrolet Bolt EV Sales – April 2017

U.S. Chevrolet Bolt EV Sales – April 2017

Plug-in electric car sales in California increased in the first quarter by 91% year-over-year to 13,804, good for a 2.7% market share out of a total of 506,745 cars and light trucks sold in Q1.

A big part of that California growth is the new Chevrolet Bolt EV with 2,735 registrations; accounting for basically one out of every five new plug-ins moved in the state during the quarter.

With 3,092 Bolts EV sold over the first three months nationwide, California had a 88.5% share of the early roll-out numbers for the Chevy.

Total Bolt EV sales to date stand at 4,963 (579 in December and 4,384 over the first four months).

At the same time when plug-ins are growing fast, we should note that conventional hybrids are decreasing - down 9.2% to 22,328.

With the Tesla Model 3 arriving later this Summer, and new Nissan LEAF's arrival in the Fall, the growth of electric car sales should only get stronger in California from here on out.
