SEPTEMBER 22, 2023
With more electric vehicle choices than ever, EV sales in the US are hitting new heights. In just the first half of 2023, over 670,000 EVs were sold with over 80 percent of those fully-electric battery electric vehicles (BEVs ). It took 8 years for the first million EV sales – but now more than a million have been sold in just the past 12 months. EV sales in the US are accelerating and are on pace to exceed one million vehicles per year.
