June 20th, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

June 2nd, 2019 | by Jose Pontes

After a first quarter with surging sales, April saw the Chinese plug-in electric vehicle market cool down a little, to some 100,000 registrations. That means it was up only 34% year over year (YoY). Nonetheless, because the mainstream market is still in the red, the April plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) share reached an amazing 6.2%, pulling the PEV market share to 5.4% in 2019 so far, well above the 2018 result (4.2%)

This more clearly shows Tesla's rise to absolute dominance of the US EV market, crushing all other players and accelerating off over the horizon. EVs are the future, and Tesla is the undisputed market leader, especially in the US, but also globally. If you're an automaker on the wrong side of this trend, it must be terrifying!
