Plug-in car sales in USA

The Toyota Prius Plug-in has made it to #2 in US plug-in car sales for the first time ever. Some other top players have seen their sales drop, but the Prius Plug-in has also seen a 190% increase in sales compared to April 2013.

Its 1,741 April sales weren’t its best ever, however. More Toyota Prius Plug-ins were sold last August (1,791) and October (2,095). But those are much bigger electric car sales months in general.

The top-selling electric car in April was the Nissan LEAF, which has held onto that top spot for at least the past 4 months. According to my Tesla Model S estimate for January, the Model S was 15 cars above the LEAF that month. Of course, the Model S is supply-limited and we don’t actually know how many cars Tesla is delivering each month, let alone how many are being delivered to the US. I base my estimates off of quarterly production estimates from Tesla and general statements about how deliveries are being split up between the US & Europe.
