US electric car sales were 1.1% of total US cars sales in November, 2016
The Chevy Bolt and Tesla Model 3 are coming in the next year — as well as significantly updated versions of the Nissan LEAF, BMW i3, Volkswagen e-Golf, Toyota Prius Plug-in/Prime, and Ford Focus Electric, as well as other completely new models like the Chrysler Pacifica PHEV, Smart ForFour Electric, and Hyundai Ioniq Electric — there may not be many more months where EVs are under 1% of the overall market.
It was a total of about 14000 electric car sales in the month.
In 2018, if the Tesla Model 3 can hit 360,000 annual car sales (30,000 per month), then overall electric car sales could be 60,000 per month. This would then be 4% of total US car sales.
The 2018 level could be at the best level that diesel cars have had in terms of market share and unit sales. 489,000 diesel cars were sold in 2014. This was about the peak because of the diesel emissions scandals.
