U.S. Plug-In Car Sales – January 2018

The first month of 2018, a usual January cool down, didn't bring us much of growth, but with +10% year-over-year it's a solid starting point.

In total, roughly 12,116 plug-in cars were delivered (some models are estimated) at market share exceeding 1%.

The top selling plug-in electric car in January was the Tesla Model 3, although we don't yet know exactly how many were delivered. 1,875 is an estimation.
