A key milestone to celebrate!
Plug-in electrified vehicles (PEVs) have transcended one million sales worldwide.
Included in this count are highway legal, light-duty all-electric cars and plug-in hybrids sold in markets around the globe.
Plug-in cars started in negligible volumes last decade, but the mass-market began just less than five years ago. The first half million came in July 2014, and now one year and two months later another half million have been sold.
In December 2014 HybridCars.com reported 712,000 plug-in sales globally, and nearly 300,000 more sales have taken place over the past nine months.
As of August 2015 the count was 985,000 less Japanese sales numbers which were not reported yet, and as of mid-September, an estimated 1,004,000 PEVs have been sold consisting of 62 percent battery electric and 38 percent plug-in hybrids.
