Electric Vehicle Sales In The US Rise By Largest Amount Ever In August

Overall, 93,197 plug-ins have been sold, which is up 29%over the 72,270 moved last year. With the current pace of recent sales, we expect that 2016 gain to close out the year much higher yet. Leading the way, as it often as done year, was Tesla Motors – selling around 5,000 Model S and Model X all-electric vehicles by our estimate during the month. But we should note that August was also the first time in history that 6 different automakers delivered more than 1,000 vehicles in the same month.
