Um, no, we're still in single digits, about 2.1% by my count. In round numbers, 360k / 17.2M. Individual states like CA do better, but even here we're still in single digits last I saw. Once source from Nov. quoted 11.2% for EVs YTD, but that was including HEVs which made up 4.1%: https://www.cncda.org/news/california-n ... -for-2018/iPlug wrote:How could we say "soon"? Plug-in vehicles sales almost doubled in the last year and most of that was due to Model 3 production spin-up. The Model 3 may have canabalized other non-Tesla potential sales. But even without it, the plug-in marked still grew above single digit territory. Would be hard to support a stall in growth soon.Oilpan4 wrote:In the United States we have seen registrations for electric vehicles grow every year. But as of 2017 the national average has only reached 1.5 out of 1,000 being full electric.
That means soon we hit market saturation for people who really want electric vehicles at some point...Eventually electric adoption will need to break out of the group of super fans.
There was also this topic I posted:
