US Plug-in Electric Car sales almost 100,000 in 2013

The US Plug-in EV sales came very close to 100,000 in 2013. A tally of 96,000 cars to be more exact. Quite an accomplishment at almost double the sales of 2012. However, this is still a small part of US overall cars sales which were 16+ million in 2013.

The Green Car Reports article sums it up nicely and can be read here. They are the ones that put together the 96,000 car figure. Another great article, with lots of data and graphs, can be found here at EV Obsession. The EV Obsession article leads with the fact that Battery-only EVs have more than doubled from 2012 to 2013.

With all the current models and new models coming in 2014, maybe sales could double, or even triple, this year and hit 200,000 or 300,000.

Clean Technica has a nice article on all the EVs available in 2014 here.

Happy Electrified New Year!
