Electric Car History, Electric Car Sales, & The Future — Cleantech Revolution Tour

Originally published on CleanTechnica. The initial Cleantech Revolution Tour conference that we held in Berlin was a lot of fun, and the presentations were packed with interesting facts, figures, charts, and jokes. We had a blast, and there’s no way to share all of the conversations, connections, and laughs (which is why I encourage you to […]

China’s BYD is World’s Largest EV Manufacturer

We all know Elon Musk plans for Tesla to be selling “millions of cars” in a few years, but China’s BYD may become the largest EV company in the world long before then. In October, it sold 6,099 electric vehicles — more than any other manufacturer! For 2015 through the month of October, BYD sold 43,073 […]

EV Adoption Forecasts Often Miss A Few Key Points

Originally published on EV Obsession. Electric car forecasts are a dime a dozen (actually, they cost a lot more than that, but they’re probably worth a dime a dozen). They often don’t account for the exponential growth that comes from disruptive technology. Some studies base growth on broad surveys of potential buyers… despite the fact that most people know very […]

Country Comparison: Electric Car Incentives & Electric Car Market Share

Originally published on EV Obsession. Incentives are an interesting thing. Sometimes, the ones you think will work the best don’t work too well. Sometimes, ones you don’t think will have as much effect end up having a huge effect. Sometimes, incentives work great with one population but don’t work so well with another population. Electric car […]

BMW i8 Sales Jump 2233% In US*

Via EV Obsession: Well, let’s be honest, August was a lame sales month for electric car lovers. There are clear reasons for this. Historically, the two highest-selling electric cars in the US have been the Nissan LEAF and the Chevy Volt.

Tesla Model S Is Top-Selling Electric In Canada Every Month This Year

Originally published on EV Obsession. I track most of the “large” electric car markets and write up monthly sales reports here on EV Obsession, but I don’t track Canada… since it’s quite small. That said, it’s interesting to find out that the Tesla Model S has been the top-selling electric car in Canada every month of 2015 […]

Germany Electric Car Sales Topped By German Car Companies In July

Originally published on EV Obsession. It’s no surprise to see that German car companies continue to top the electric car sales table in Germany, but after test driving the Audi A3 e-tron myself, I have to admit that I’m surprised to see it and its almost identical cousin, the Volkswagen Golf GTE, topping the tables. The […]

#1 In Tesla Model S Sales California (Obv), #2 Florida!

Originally published on CleanTechnica. By Cynthia Shahan There is so much difference between Florida and California, and yet there is a common interest in automobiles, and especially one, in particular — the Tesla Model S, an all-electric automobile that is widely considered the best mass-market automobile in the world. Along with being a clean and fast status symbol, […]
