Snapshot: Electric Drive Sales Dashboard May 2015
Electric Drive Transportation Association this month released a US market snapshot instead of its usual larger infographic that we’re used to seeing from EDTA.
Anyways, it seems that plug-in electric car sales have exceeded 329,000 (cumulative total) in the U.S. by their count and by the end of this year could reach 400,000 if sales average 10,000 a month!
In May BEV/PHEV/EREV had 22% of the mix with conventional hybrids, while YTD result is over 21%.
On the other hand, charging infrastructure seems to growing slower. EDTA indicates 9,668 places (24,925 outlets), while in January 2015 it was 9,029 (22,545 outlets). That’s 7% more (10% for outlets), while during the same period the cumulative number of plug-in cars rose by 12.6%.
