Plug-In Vehicles = 59% of Vehicle Sales in Norway in October

December 5th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

When it comes to electric vehicle adoption, Norway is king of the hill. Nearly 2 out of every 3 passenger vehicles sold in Norway come with a plug. In October, the plug-in vehicle share was 59%, a bit higher than the 56% plug-in vehicle hold for January–October


Open The Plug-In Hybrid Floodgates! Germany EV Sales Report

November 17th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

Something clicked in the German plug-in vehicle market after the summer holidays. The market had a record month (9,452 registrations) in September, and then October came and set a new record, this time 26% above the previous one! 11,926 plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) were registered, more than doubling last year's result. With China's PEV market in post-subsidy blues, this is a welcome boost to global sales. Now if only the US market helped to carry the burden


Teslas = 77.7% of US Electric Vehicle Sales

November 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

The US electric vehicle market ... is not the most interesting. Unfortunately, we have only one mass-market electric vehicle on the market, and there are very few models available across the nation. Actually, aside from Tesla's offerings, I think only two fully electric models available at dealers practically anywhere are the Chevy Bolt and Nissan


Hyundai Kona EV Wins The Netherlands In Slow Month — EV Sales Report

November 7th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

After a memorable month of September, the plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) markets in the Netherlands slowed down significantly, growing just 37% in September, with 2,776 registrations, translating into a PEV share of 8.1% in October. That keeps the 2019 PEV share at a record 10%


Tesla = 75–85% of US Electric Vehicle Sales

October 22nd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

We no longer publish monthly US electric vehicle sales reports, because few automakers publish their monthly electric vehicle sales, and several don't even publish quarterly sales of their EVs. Nonetheless, I continue to track the numbers that are published and estimate sales for the other fully electric models


Tesla Model 3 = #1 In EV Sales In Germany In Record Month — CleanTechnica EV Sales Report

October 18th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The German plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market continues on the fast track in September, having scored a new record, 9,452 registrations, which doubles last year's result. Fully electric vehicles (BEVs) were up 150% year over year (YoY), and this time plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) were also helping (+51%), allowing the PEV share to reach a record 3.9% share last month. BEVs alone hit a best ever, 2.4%. That pulled the 2019 plug-in share to 2.7% (1.7% BEV)


Will South Africa Build Electric Vehicles?

October 12th, 2019 | by David Zarembka

Like Germany is to Europe, South Africa is the manufacturing powerhouse of sub-Saharan Africa. In particular, it has 8 automobile assembly plants. The companies are BMW, Ford, Isuzu, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Renault, Toyota, and Volkswagen. In 2018, South Africa produced 610,854 vehicles


Tesla Model 3 Is 2019’s Best Selling Vehicle In Dutch Lands

October 9th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

We start this month's EV sales reports in the Netherlands. (Well, we already started there with another article, but here's a second.) The Dutch plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market grew a whopping 281% in September compared to the same month in 2018 (year over year, or YoY). The nation had 8,067 PEV registrations, the best month ever for plug-ins aside from previous fiscal-derived peaks in December 2013 (9,304 units), December 2015 (15,908), and December 2016 (11,132). So, all points to a record performance this coming December. How much, would you say? 16,000? 20,000? More


Another Fun Louisiana National Drive Electric Week Event

September 22nd, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Louisiana hosted several National Drive Electric Week events, and I got to go to two of them, the Abita Springs one last week and the Gonzales one today. In Gonzales, Plugin Louisiana and Louisiana Clean Fuels teamed up with Tanger Outlet Mall to help bring awareness about electric vehicles and clean energy. I got to tag along with Karen Rudisil, owner of a Tesla Model


BMW i3 = #1 Electric Vehicle In Germany In August, Record Performance

September 18th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The German plug-in electric vehicle market continued on the right track in August, having registered 8,121 units. Fully electric vehicles (BEVs) were up +104% year over year (YoY), while plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) keep suffering (down 9%). The plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) share was 2.6% in the month, with BEVs alone hitting 1.6%. That kept the 2019 plug-in share at 2.6% (1.7% BEV)


Top Reasons To Buy These 13 Electric Vehicles

September 2nd, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Some people like to say that we here at CleanTechnica only write about Tesla, only care about Tesla, only want to hug Tesla, and only promote Tesla's vehicles. That's not true. We've actually published more than 1,000 articles regarding the Nissan LEAF, hundreds regarding the Chevy Bolt, hundreds regarding the Renault Zoe, hundreds regarding the BMW i3, and many more. Yes, nowadays, the Tesla Model 3 — as the first truly mass market electric car — dominates our EV coverage, just as it dominates EV sales in the markets where most of our readers reside. But we actually love and obsessively cover numerous EVs


Volkswagen e-Golf = #1 EV in Germany in July

August 15th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

The German plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market continues on the right track in July, with 9,233 registrations. Fully electric vehicles (BEVs) were up 136% year over year (YoY), while plug-in electric vehicles (PHEVs) keep stuttering (+6% in July, bringing year-to-date numbers out of the red)


Tesla Model 3 = 67% of US Electric Vehicle Sales in 2nd Quarter

August 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

I prefer comparing the Tesla Model 3 to its gasoline competitors, but it's also logical to compare the Model 3 to other electric vehicles. In the old days, these were simply called EV sales reports, but the US electric vehicle market is so unbalanced at the moment that it's hard to ignore the elephant in the room — there's the Model 3, and there's everything else


Jaguar Dealer Claims I-PACE Can Charge At Tesla Superchargers — Whoops

July 28th, 2019 | by Guest Contributor

Legacy automakers have had some documented issues selling electric cars. In 2017, Sierra Club issued a report on EV shopping and found that Tesla stores provided a far more positive experience compared to Big Auto's franchise dealerships. In 2018, another report in Nature found that "dismissive and deceptive car dealerships create barriers to electric vehicle adoption."
