2020 US/Canada EV/PHEV sales

Sat Jul 04, 2020 1:07 am

Tried to dig around for a good topic but couldn't find one.

Seems like IEVs hasn't updated their quarterly sales scorecard yet but we can discuss what I've seen so far:

In Q2, Chevrolet Bolt EV Sales In U.S. Decreased By 37% ... -sales-us/
After the quite successful first quarter of this year, Chevrolet Bolt EV sales decreased in Q2 by 37% year-over-year to 2,498.

The decline was slightly higher than in the case of the overall Chevrolet brand sales - by 33.6% to 331,917, and for GM as a whole - by 34% to 492,489.

We guess that, besides the obvious COVID-19 lockdown, Bolt EV was affected by lack of the federal tax credit since April 1, 2020. Previously it was $1,875.
Nissan LEAF Sales In U.S. Down 68% In Q2 2020 ... s-q2-2020/
Barely 1,000 Nissan LEAFs were sold during the past three months.

Nissan car sales during the second quarter of 2020 were highly affected by the COVID-19 lockdown in the U.S. as the overall sales decreased by 49.5% year-over-year to 177,328.

The decrease was even worse in the case of passenger cars - down 61.8% year-over-year to 55,128. Unfortunately, the all-electric Nissan LEAF dragged the results down even more - by over 68% year-over-year to 1,049.
I guess this would be good place to discuss US and Canada EV/PHEV sales. I expect the combination of Model 3 and Y to continue to decimate Leaf and Bolt sales in the US.

'13 Leaf SV w/premium (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.
