While EV registrations overall increased 59% in Q1 2021 versus Q1 2020, PHEV registrations more than doubled with an increase of 103.7%.
This is among many other trends you will find in our latest EV data Excel file that compares EV registrations for Q1 2021 to that of Q1 2020.
The first half of 2021 saw record sales of electric vehicles, according to the just released EVAdoption report, US Electric Vehicle Sales Report: 1H 2021. From January 1 to June 30, 2021 an estimated 291,933 BEVs and PHEVs (plug-in electric vehicles) were purchased, roughly 30,000 below the 320,000 average for the full years of 2018-2020.
Arguably the biggest flaw in the Plug-In Electric Drive Vehicle Credit (IRC 30D) regulations is the triggering of a phaseout schedule of the tax credit when a manufacturer sells 200,000 total EVs (BEV and PHEV). In the Clean Energy Act for America (CEAA) proposed legislation, this per manufacturer threshold would be eliminated and replaced with an industry-wide phaseout based on reaching 50% EV sales share.
US sales of electric vehicles are expected to increase significantly this decade, however, by the end of 2030 EVs will still comprise only a tiny percentage of vehicles in operation (VIO) and the number of internal combustion engine vehicles (ICE) will actually increase by 20 million. These are the findings of new EVAdoption analysis. To […]
EVAdoption forecasts an increase in YOY EV sales in the US of 70% in 2021 versus 2020, with sales increasing to 585,375 in 2021 from 345,285 in 2020.
Tesla’s electric vehicle sale share in the US will drop to 21% in 2030 from the near 67% in 2020.
Can the US reach the climate target of 50 million EVs by 2030? Unlikely without emissions regulations or an outright ban of EVs.
How will the COVID-19 pandemic affect consumer behavior once life begins to transition back to even a semi-normal state
The COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on supply chains and consumer spending will have a negative effect on electric vehicle sales in the US, likely for the next 12-18 months. But a potential double whammy impact on EV sales is the lowest gas prices that many regions have seen in the last decade or more.
2019 sales of electric vehicles in the US decreased 7% to 9% versus the very strong sales growth in 2018, according to separate estimates from Edmunds and InsideEVs.
