We will report April 2019 EV Sales beginning on Wednesday, May 1, 2019.
Editor's Note: As we've shared in the past, we'll be completely revamping our sales reporting in the months to come. With the new site, we have more capability to offer a better user experience.
As you can see from the chart below, we can utilize nicer, cleaner charts that should be easy to read on all devices, despite the current issue with the ad skin shrinking content. Oh well, gotta pay the bills, but as you'll see, that will go away after frequent visits to the site. Moreover, we'll eventually be able to add a user interface, which may allow you to search and sort models, as well as choose to see only BEVs or PHEVs, etc.
With all of that being said, getting it all developed and underway is taking some time. What you see now is working well, though still only a temporary solution. For these reasons, we've decided to forego our separate REPORT CARD post this month and just publish the scorecard chart as an article. Hopefully, by the end of Q2, we'll be able to unleash our entire new proprietary system.
We're very excited about the future prospects of sales reporting and interactive charts. Please bear with us as we learn the new site system and work to make our exclusive sales reporting situation so much better for you. Since we're publishing the scorecard here as an article, please feel free to offer up suggestions (even if they've already been requested in the past). This way, as we work to design the new setup, we can take your opinions into account.
It's important to note that the live scorecard updates may tend to lag depending on your device, settings, and browser. You can try refreshing the page, but it may be faster to close out InsideEVs and reopen the site. This is because your device and browser may save cache, so it may not choose to "see" the updates quite as quick as we're able to provide them. As always, let us know of any issues going forward.
Sadly, it appears the chart is not showing up on some browsers in AMP. If that's the case, just go to the website and access the "normal" page, as it appears AMP is limiting features.
Thank you again very much for your continued support!
Please realize that due to most automakers' lack of reporting and/or splits related to EVs, we must work very hard to garner reasonable estimates. Pay particular attention to the Kia Niro EV, which we just added to our sales chart. We will be able to better track this new model next month and going forward, but we only offer a loose estimate at this point.

InsideEVs tracks all plug-in EV sales/deliveries for the United States by automaker and brand. Additionally, readers can find all historical EV sales charts for the "current generation" of electric vehicles by clicking here. Keep in mind, the words sales and deliveries are synonymous. For example, in order for a car to count as SOLD, an owner must buy or lease it, take DELIVERY, and have it in his/her possession.
***InsideEVs' journalist Wade Malone (our Lead Sales Analyst) provided in-depth, detailed, and heavily researched sales estimations and related analysis.
