I somehow skipped doing a run-through of the top 10 CleanTechnica stories of the week yesterday (perhaps the hundreds of comments on story #2 are what distracted me). If you haven’t checked out these pieces, it seems that your colleagues recommend you do:

electric cars worldwide total
Top electric car countries. Total = number of electric cars on the road on January 1, 2015.
EV growth by country
Number of electric car sales by year and country.
Top 5 ELectric Car Models
Top 5 electric car models.
  1. Electric Car Demand Growing, Global Market Hits 740,000 Units
  2. One Thing I Think Elon Musk Is Wrong On
  3. White Tesla Model X Video, 1972 BMW Electric Car… (Clean Transport Link Drop)
  4. Greenpeace Aces Renewable Energy Forecasts. Surprised?
  5. EV Battery Costs Already ‘Probably’ Cheaper Than 2020 Projections
  6. Silicon Solar Cells Hit A Wall, Perovskite Leaps It
  7. Elon Musk: New Easter Egg For Model S Coming Soon
  8. 1-Megawatt Solar Hybrid Plant Installed In Just 7 days (Time-Lapse Video)
  9. Hidden Benefits Of Electric Cars, Even More “Environmentally Friendly” Than Previously Thought
  10. Battery Tests Show Some Lithium-Ion Cells Last Over 5x Longer
  11. 99.99% Of Nissan LEAF Batteries Still In Operation

Why 11 when I said 10? Well, one of the stories above was actually published yesterday… I didn’t want to exclude it, but I thought the Nissan LEAF battery story deserved an extra 15 minutes of fame too.

Regarding the charts: They weren’t initially in that top article. They come from Germany’s ZSW.
