USA October 2013

The funky looking Spark EV is one of the most recent additions to the US market

A Year Later Edition

October brought a surprise in the monthly ranking, after almost one year (November '12, to be exact) away from the top spot, the Prius Plug-In returned to #1 with 2.095 units sold (A new personal best), a smidge above the 2.022 units of the Chevy Volt (#2) and the third placed Nissan Leaf (2.002 units sold).

The Energi cousins from Ford continue to improve, with the Fusion scoring yet again a new personal best (1.087 units), and the C-Max (1.092 units) making a new year best number.

The rest of the ranking saw two changes in the YTD ranking, with the Toyota RAV4 EV passing the Mitsu I-Miev to #8 and the Honda Accord Plug-In benefits from a best ever score of...71 registrations to climb to #12.

  1. The math of the monthly total seems to be wrong. It adds up to 9,661, and as a consequence, the YTD total goes up to + 76K

  2. It's good to see the RAV4 EV break the 1000 mark. Despite its reliability problems, I think that there needs to be more electric SUVs on the road to show people that EVs aren't just small hatches.

  3. Yeah, too bad the Outlander PHEV isn't in the States, it would sell like hot cakes!
