Tesla Gobbled Up 78% Of US Electric Vehicle Sales In 2019*

January 16th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

While the Tesla Model 3 was the 9th best selling car in the country and had more than 150,000 sales in the USA, the next best selling non-Tesla on the market was the Chevy Bolt with 16,418 sales, followed by the Nissan LEAF with 12,365 sales


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


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


Attending National Drive Electric Week Event In Florida

September 16th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

Yesterday, I attended the Drive Electric Week event in New Port Richey. Next week, if all goes as planned, I'll attend another one in Florida. I've been attending these sorts of events for a few years. Although I enjoy them, I don't think they are very effective at their stated purpose. Every time I attend a Drive Electric event, it seems that it is preaching to the choir. I was happy to see a few non-EV owners at the event, but the majority of the people there owned an


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


Who Showed What At The 2018 LA Auto Show?

December 16th, 2018 | by Nicolas Zart

In part 1 of our review of the 2018 LA Auto Show, we looked at the mobility startup world and how it is proposing to meet tomorrow's mobility needs. Let's now look at what traditional carmakers had to offer at the 2018 LA Auto Show


45% of Current Electric Car Drivers Plan to Buy a Tesla Next — #CleanTechnica Report

November 11th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

You're going to be shocked — the electric car respondents most frequently said they were most likely to buy next (or for the first time in the case of non-EV drivers) was the Tesla Model 3. Over 100,000 reservations ($1,000 each) were placed for the car in under 24 hours — even before the car was shown. The demand was through the roof and ended up being the single biggest product reveal in history by certain key metrics. So, it is not a surprise in the least that this electric car tops the list of “expected next EV model.”


Tesla Model 3 Sales Dwarf Other US Electric Car Sales — #CleanTechnica Report

August 27th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

I've been reporting monthly US electric car sales for years. My monthly report has often been one of the most popular stories of the month here on CleanTechnica. However, unless something changes, I've concluded it's time to stop — or to take a break — from these US EV sales reports. There are 4 core reasons why


Tesla Model 3, Model X, & Model S = #1, #2, #3 In US Electric Car Sales

July 9th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

Let's get the biggest matter out of the way right off the bat: no one outside of Tesla really has a clue as to how many Model 3s were delivered in the US in each month of Q2. Yes, we have a Model 3 delivery total from Tesla for the quarter as a whole, but the company doesn't break that down by month or region. For a while, the slowly growing ramp allowed us to estimate without too much difficulty, but a few things changed in May and June


My Week With A Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid — Time Well Spent

June 29th, 2018 | by Steve Hanley

The folks at Honda recently lent me a Clarity plug-in hybrid to drive for a week. My colleague Kyle Field recently reviewed the fully electric version of the Clarity and found much to recommend it, but that car is only available in California. Kyle and I have been looking forward to comparing our experiences with the two cars. Here is my report


Tesla Model 3 Is Laps Ahead Of Other US Plug-In Cars (US Electric Car Sales Report)

June 9th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

The Tesla Model 3 continues to open up its lead over every other plug-in car on the US market. For all the hype about a slower than projected Model 3 production ramp up, it seems there isn't another plug-in vehicle that comes within two laps of touching it. It sits at about triple the sales of the #2 Toyota Prius Prime (a plug-in hybrid) and nearly 4 × the sales of all 7 of BMW Group's plug-in models combined


Tesla Model 3 = #1 In Q1 2018 US Electric Car Sales

April 6th, 2018 | by Zachary Shahan

The Tesla Model 3 appears to have been the top selling fully electric car in the United States in the first quarter of 2018. If you believe my estimates (see more on those below), #2 and #3 on the list were the Tesla Model S and Tesla Model

It's time to vote on the electric car released between Q3 2017 and Q2 2018 that you think will have the most positive impact on the world. This is our 3rd annual CleanTechnica Car of the Year award, with the first two winners being the Tesla Model X and Chevy Bolt


Most Energy Efficient Cars For Sale In USA

January 7th, 2018 | by James Ayre

As just noted in the first part of this two-part series, we decided to take a look at the most fuel efficient (i.e., gas efficient) cars on the market in the US (that article) and then take a look at the most energy efficient cars in the USA (this article). There are both similarities and differences that stood out after doing so, but there's basically one key take-home point. We also came away with some automotive suggestions for buyers with different needs. Without further to do, let's jump in


Honda Clarity EV & Plug-In Hybrid Just Introduced In New York

April 13th, 2017 | by Steve Hanley

The Honda Clarity is to Honda what the Hyundai Ioniq is to Hyundai — a single chassis that can accommodate several different powertrains. For Hyundai, that means a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid, and a fully battery-electric version built on the same platform. For Honda, it means a fuel cell, a plug-in hybrid, and a fully battery-electric version are available, all based on the same platform
