    California Leads The Way To Cars With Plugs

    Who’s Leading on Electric Cars? (And Who’s Lagging Behind?)

    David Reichmuth, August 24, 2016 (Union of Concerned Scientists)

    “…Car buyers can now find alternatives to petroleum-powered cars, choosing from a growing number of electric-drive cars but] the availability of EVs varies greatly, both by manufacturer and geography. Some automakers are simply not making EVs available, according to Electrifying the Vehicle Market from the Union of Concerned Scientists…Other companies severely limit the availability of EVs to California and a handful of states…On the other hand, EV leaders like BMW, Nissan, Tesla, and General Motors make their EVs much more widely available…California leads the nation in EV sales…[O]ver 3% of all new cars in the state were plug-in models in 2015, with two automakers (BMW and General Motors) having over 5% of sales EVs…[T]he greater availability of EVs plays an important role…Last year, 22 EV models were sold in California, while no other state had more than 14 models sold…In the Northeast, car buyers not only had fewer EV models to choose from than in CA, but had a harder time finding them on dealer lots…[P]olicies like the California’s Zero Emission Vehicle program are working to encourage the growth of the EV market. The ZEV regulation applies to California and nine other states, though until 2018 car companies can comply solely by selling EVs in California…” click here for more
