DOE: all-electric vehicles make up 53% of US plug-in vehicle sales through July 2018

Cumulative sales of plug-in vehicles through July 2018 show that more than half (53%) are all-electric vehicles (EV), according to figures from the US Department of Energy (DOE).

Plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV), which use electricity from the grid as well as gasoline, make up the other 47%. Together, sales of EV and PHEV add to 905,588 cumulative vehicles from the first sales in December 2010 to July 2018.




Interesting that the EVs seem to have passed PHEVs around 2013.  I would not have expected that based on practicality and cost.  Must be due to incentives.
