Plug-In Electric Car Sales For Oct: Volt, Leaf Hold Steady

In October sales of plug-in electric cars, both Chevy and Nissan improved on their September results, but didn’t come close to beating their record August sales numbers.

The Chevrolet Volt range-extended electric car racked up 2,022 deliveries, which is up 14 percent on September’s number of 1,766.

For the 10 months of the year to date, a total of 18,782 Volts has now been delivered–which is 2.7 percent less than last year’s total through October of 19,309.

The Nissan Leaf logged deliveries of 2,002, up 2.5 percent against the previous month’s total of 1,953 but up 27 percent over October 2012’s total of 1,579.

With just two months left in the year, the U.S. market has now purchased 18,078 Leafs–already a vast improvement over the full-year 2012 total of 9,819.

(The Leaf will also likely reach another benchmark next month: 100,000 cars delivered globally in the three years since its December 2010 sales launch.)
