US PlugIn Electric Car Sales Charted January 2019

Source: Electric Vehicle News U.S. Plug-In Car Sales – January 2019 January is usually a slow month. One of the reasons is the federal tax credit of up to $7,500 for purchasing a plug-in car, which is available after the particular year ends – you need to wait a year to receive it right now. On the other hand, if you know more or less your taxes in the late part of the year, you can purchase a plug-in car, and recover the credit in a few months.The other reason is that some manufacturers (like Tesla, which is also the biggest player in BEVs) notes the best results usually at the end of a particular quarter. Currently, Tesla shifted its production more towards Europe, and lost half of the federal tax credit for its customers (up to $3,750 now).The Tesla Model 3 remains the top choice for those who decided to purchase a plug-in electric car – we estimate that around 6,500 were delivered.In January, the LOL chart reveals a slower pace of growth of the Tesla Model 3 – but enough to overtake the Tesla Model S (148,046 M3 to 144,767 MS). The #1 Chevrolet Volt is now within range for February (152,819). January was shy compared to the late months of 2018U.S. car sales in January 2019 are estimated at over 1.14 million, which means it decreased by about 1%. In such circumstances, the plug-in electric car segment – which improved by almost 43% to 17,109 – is growing super fast. Sure, it could be better (in fact it was the slowest growth in almost a year), but it would be a sin to not appreciate such a result.The market share increased by about half year-over-year to around 1.5%.
