2018 Nissan Leaf electric car, test-driven by Shiva of Fremont, California, Oct 2017
While 2017 saw higher U.S. sales of plug-in electric cars than any previous year, expectations for 2018 sales are running even higher.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV will be available in all 50 states for a full year, the new 2018 Nissan Leaf with a 151-mile range is now on sale, and of course the Tesla Model 3 will be a factor.
How much of a factor remains to be seen, as Model 3 deliveries seem to have risen during January but numerous owners have told Green Car Reports of quality problems with their newly delivered Teslas.
We won't know much about Tesla deliveries in any case until early April's first-quarter deliveries report, unless CEO Elon Musk chooses to discuss it during the February 7 conference call on last year's company financial results.
Meanwhile, Thursday and Friday are sales-reporting days, and it appears that January numbers are considerably lower than the year-end blowout totals in December 2017.
Chevrolet logged sales of 1,177 Bolt EVs and 713 Volts, versus 3,227 and 1,937 in December—underscoring the double effect of the year-end sales push and lower plug-in sales in winter months.
