California hits milestone of 250,000 electric plug-in cars

The milestone was announced by the California Plug-In Electric Vehicle Collaborative. Executive Director Christine Kehoe commented on the announcement:  “Just a few years ago, you could count the number of plug-in models on one hand. Times have changed. Today, anyone thinking about buying a car can check out more than 30 electric models. And with federal and state rebates, they are more affordable than ever.”
The state is aiming to reach 1 million electric plug-ins by 2025, but it will hopefully reach the goal sooner with several new electric vehicles hitting the market in the next few years. The Chevy Bolt EV and Tesla Model 3 alone could make a significant contribution to the tally next year.
