I'm sharing this particular site as it collects data on monthly EV sales which Bolt joined in January 2017. Since the success of Bolt in the marketplace is a frequent discussion on this board, I thought some might find it interesting. The data they share is sited in their sources and looks to be credible. They have past year's data on their site as well.

March wasn't too far off from February. There really isn't anything to note on that one considering they had inventory issues which makes sense looking at the numbers.

Guess it was just a matter of backlogged Bolts being delivered after a long delay for everyone. Thought it was some special incentive that I didn't hear about.

If there was any special incentive, being active on here especially, you would have heard about it haha. Our community definitely stays on top of all things EV ;)

I have been following InsideEVs monthly sales reports since the beginning.


Sadly, this is no longer possible. Companies are now hiding the data.


I am pretty sure, if any other manufacturer comes within an order of magnitude of Tesla sales again, they will let the public know.

Good numbers this month, and the Bolt had a great uptick. Normally I'd predict a plummet in Bolt sales, but with the new model coming out in Oct, I expect the plummet won't occur until April or so.

The disheartening thing is that we're not on track to surpass total US sales from last year.

Why was March such a big month for EV? I can't recall anything of note happening that month to cause this.
That was the last month of full federal tax credit.

Bolt sales, for the first three quarters of 2019, are up 59.75% over the first three quarters of 2018. This is due to massive discounts, offering even bigger savings than the federal tax credit we got 26 months ago, and available even without the tax liability to benefit from. I might be celebrating too, if the 2019 numbers weren't 8.33% below the 2017 numbers for the first three quarters.

Fourth quarter numbers should easily beat 2018 numbers, but no way they will match fourth quarter 2017 numbers.

There is still only one car manufacturer with rising EV sales numbers, year after year. Tesla is still ahead of last year, at this point, by 24,473 cars. Given where we may be headed this quarter, I don't think that could possibly hold
