United States Electric Vehicle (EV) New Sales Market Share and Forecast
While US EV sales have been hovering in the 1% neighborhood for about the last year, EV sales in March 2018 were 1.6% of total light vehicle sales and could end up close to 2% by the end of 2018 primarily because of deliveries of the Tesla Model 3.
Even at 1.6% EVs are still well under 2% of total vehicle sales in the US, but this is a fairly significant increase in market share of roughly 50% for the last 12 months.
Where Are EVs Selling Well Above the US Average?
No surprise, EVs continue to sell extremely well in upper-income cities in California. Thirty California cities had electric vehicle shares above 10% in 2017, up from 19 such cities in 2016, according to new analysis from ICCT.
There were 109 California cities with a greater than 5% share of new electric vehicles in 2017, up from just 64 in 2016, according to ICCT.
