Led By Tesla, U.S. EV Sales Rocket In December, Pushing Annual Numbers To New Heights

Inside EVs is almost finished posting the tallies for December U.S. EV sales, which in turn give us the year-end volumes. The numbers are solid, representing a strong reversal of last year’s slight decline. 2014 stood at 122,438, and 2015 backslid to 116,099. 2016 already shows just under 155,000 sales with Ford and BWM (together they will easily yield another 3-5000) numbers still outstanding. And then there are the EV ‘losers’ such as the Volvo CX90 and Kia Soul (which between them can’t seem to muster 400 sales in any given month), which will add a few hundred more.
