California’s EV market continues to grow, according to data gathered by Veloz, a non-profit which tracks and reports on growing electric vehicle (EV) sales data in California, market trends, and infrastructure build-out. Q1 2022 was the state’s strongest quarter for electric vehicle sales to date, with 81,292 electric vehicles sold—29% higher than last quarter. Q1 of 2022 surpassed Q1 of 2021 numbers by more than 20,000 vehicles.

Electric vehicles include battery-electric, plug-in hybrid-electric and fuel cell electric vehicles.

Additionally, Californians bought roughly 15,000 more EVs during Q1 2022 than Q4 2021; Q1 2022 EV sales are up by 37%, relative to EV sales at this time last year.

The market share of electric vehicles in California jumped from roughly 12% to 16.32% in the quarter. Even with supply chain delays impacting the overall supply of EVs and causing high inflation in other sectors, EVs continued an upward trend in the market share of California’s vehicles sales.

It’s no idle dream, Lad. Volkswagen predicts BEV price parity with ICE by 2025. California will ban ICE sales after 2035.

The new EV releases from Kia, Hyundai, Ford, VW are really good and accordingly generating a lot of interest and sales.

Trucks are being produced and delivered to customers.

All this progress in the last 12 years since Leaf and Volt. Imagine what the next 12 years will be like.

We’ll see clear blue skies in Los Angeles and the Imperial Valley in our lifetime.
