Each month InsideEVs tracks all plug-in EV deliveries for the U.S. by automaker. What will August 2019 bring?
And, so it begins with solid Toyota Prius Prime estimated sales! We'll be reporting August 2019 EV Sales beginning Wednesday, September 4.
Keep in mind that we're in the process of switching to a new, more reliable data system. For the time being, you can expect some delivery numbers to publish later than expected or not be entered at all until the end of the quarter (specifically GM, Ford, Kia, Hyundai, Volvo, and Porsche).
Note that BMW no longer gives model breakdowns or a final EV number, but rather a percentage decrease YoY, which has been huge in the last few months. So, while our model breakdown is estimated, the total checks out officially — it's important to note the i3 and i8 numbers are correct as reported.
Similarly, Mercedes provides IEV with a "total" number of plug-in vehicles sold for the month. So, we use our resources to glean model-specific sales. With that in mind, note that while model numbers might not be spot-on, the totals are verified by the automaker.
With all of the above being said, rest assured that we'll still provide Tesla delivery estimates each month, as well as sales numbers of many other models that are officially reported by automakers on a monthly basis. Hopefully, as the new process unfolds, we'll have better access to more reliable monthly EV sales data.
Editor's Note: Live scorecard updates may 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.
In addition, it appears the chart is not showing up on some browsers in AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages). If that's the case, just remove "amp" from the URL or go to the website and access the "normal" page.
Thank you again very much for your continued support!

We use the words sales and deliveries synonymously. For a car to count as SOLD, an owner must buy or lease it, take DELIVERY, and have it in his/her possession.
