EV Sales

There are several excellent sites that track the US, global or country specific sales of electric vehicles (EVs). These include InsideEVs Sales Scorecard (US), EVObsession, EVVolumes, EV Sales, and FleetKarma (Canada). On this page, EVAdoption will leverage these and other sources to track and analyze specific sales trends – whether by automaker/brand, EV type (BEV versus PHEV), key trend-setting markets such as California and automakers progress toward the 200,000 Federal Tax credit threshold. Stay tuned as we continuously update this page.

Below are sales statistics for the top 10 BEVs and PHEVs in the US using data from the InsideEVs Sales Scorecard. We’ve included year to date, the monthly median sales YTD and the trailing 2 months sales for each EV.
