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.
