GCC: Adamas: EV sales up just 20% in April 2019 but total battery capacity deployed up 69%

. . . In April 2019, a total of 6.7 GWh of battery capacity was deployed in passenger BEVs, PHEVs and HEVs globally—an increase of 69.4% over the same month the year prior.

This rapid growth in battery capacity deployed stems from strong sales of high-capacity long-range BEVs such as the Tesla Model 3, BYD Yuan, Nissan Leaf and Hyundai Kona, among others, relative to the year prior.

Adamas Intelligence data also indicates that the sales-weighted average battery capacity (in kWh) increased at an equally-impressive 41.6% between April 2018 and April 2019, from 13.7 kWh to 19.4 kWh (taking into account sales of all passenger HEVs, PHEVs and BEVs, combined).

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.
