Plug-in Electric Vehicles sales are up. Demand in growing. Ready to turn in your regular gas vehicle and replace it for a more environment friendly trasportatiion solution like an electric car? Or maybe more conservative with a gas electric hybrid. Well 2014 is rocking it for both.
In the USA electric car sales in April kept level. According to GreenCarReports.com: “The Nissan Leaf battery-electric hatchback continued its stronger sales trend from March: 2,088 Leafs found new owners, lower than the March number of 2,507 (its second-best month ever, after December last year).”
According to Motor Industry Correspondent, Henry Foy, Electric Car Sales are not doing well pointing to the high cost to make and “make up less than 1 per cent of sales in developed car markets”. Electric Car global sales last year reached 200,00 which is said to be twice that achieved in 2012. While encouraging figures for many, some are not so positive citing that current sales levels is not enough to reach the International Energy Agency’s target of 20 million electric cars on the road by 2020.
