Posted this elsewhere yesterday, with no response, so posting again here.
Thank goodness for the Internet Archive.
InsideEVs has changed their archive, dumping data for 2010-2011, and the first half of 2012, for some reason.
Interesting to see that best years by model.
Model 3 2018 139,782
Leaf 2014 30,200
Model S 2016 28,896
Model X 2018 26,100
Volt 2016 24,739
Bolt 2017 23,297
My guess is that one Korean CUV could match Leaf's best, but with two, and limited supply, they will probably actual split sales. Likely the next EV to pass 30K sales will be the Model Y.
Basically, there is a tiny market for any EV, except Tesla, and the more models that are offered the fewer of each will be sold. There is no sales model that works for anybody but Tesla.
Each dealer around here had one or two this quarter. They were offering $3-5K off list before you walked in the door. Most sold their one or two. None of these dealers are going to get in as many as they did in 2017, because they sold like old fish.
