More drivers discovering the value of driving electric

Many thanks to our friend 'down south', Stan Hanel, Outreach Coordinator, Nevada Electric Vehicle Accelerator (NEVA) program.

The Electric Drive Transportation Association published its monthly sales figures for plug-in electric cars nationwide during March 2018. There was quite a surge in sales during March, compared to January and February:


Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs): 10,882

Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs):               14,480


Total Plug-in Electric Car Sales                  25,362


I updated the running total on the home page of the Nevada Electric Vehicle Accelerator (NEVA) program website to show 808,892 total plug-in electric vehicles sold, since mass-market adoption began during late 2010 with the Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt.

EDTA also tracks the quantity of public Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) charging stations available in the United States. There are currently 20,189 public charging stations available. Many stations have dual plugs or outlets, so total outlets available nationwide are 52,673.
