August and September U.S. EV Sales Recap: BEV Sales Dominate

Electric Cars

Due to the sales reporting issues, we’ve combined the last two months into one report.

Sad but true, folks, it seems monthly EV sales and eventual year-over-year estimates may not surpass 2018’s record numbers. Unfortunately, it all comes down to one automaker … Tesla.

Now that the Silicon Valley electric automaker has shifted many deliveries overseas, U.S. EV sales are taking a huge hit. However, factor in the fact that we can’t even begin to get “real” U.S. numbers from automakers, and who even knows the truth here, right?

Does this mean EVs are on the outs? No way! it just means that OEMs are just finally coming on board, though it may be years before we see that impact (due to expensive entrants with less-than-desirable range, in addition to limited availability of key players in the industry). Still, there’s little doubt that EVs are making waves.

We at InsideEVs plan to apprise you in greater detail of the ongoing situation and let you know the ultimate plan going forward. We shared some preliminary details via our recent scorecard updates. But we still owe you recaps from the last two months, after updating the “estimates” and making you wait so long.

What we are so elated about comes down to increasing BEV sales over PHEV sales. Thus, details follow:
