How electric cars are slowly moving from niche to something ‘people want to buy’

For your next car, would you consider plugging it in instead of filling it up?

“Electric vehicle sales are still under 2 percent of the new car sales every month, so it’s a very small number,” said Kelley Blue Book executive analyst Rebecca Lindland.

But she said that’s beginning to change, especially in the luxury market.

“I think we’re actually finally starting to see products that people want to buy,” Lindland told CNBC’s “On The Money” in a recent interview.

Last month, Tesla sold an estimated 20,500 cars. According to Clean Technica, in November 2018 Tesla had 27 percent of the luxury car market while BMW had 22 percent and Mercedes-Benz had 20 percent.
