September 2019 EV Scorecard

The Model 3 is up a decent amount, and the Bolt made a surge as the last month for $3570 in federal tax credits reduced by half that in October.

Overall, we're behind 2018 total sales. Is this the first year we'll have made negative progress in EV sales? Not a good sign at all.

Possible reasons:

Gas is cheap
Overall vehicle sales are down
The Model 3 takes the luster off other EVs

The Model 3 point might seem like a stretch, but M3 sales are up while just about all other EV sales are down. So, I think there's something to it.

4 of the 5 top selling months for EVs were in 2018. I think this indicates that EVs aren't there yet as far as delivering sufficient benefits to the typical consumer for the price (value). People that want EVs probably already have them, for the most part (I'm still on the fence).

Tesla has through December, and then federal tax credits expire completely. I expect US sales to fall off at that time.

The Chevy Bolt gets 6 more months of $1875 federal tax credit, and a slightly higher range model (2020) is set to hit dealers this month.

None of the other manufacturers are really set to sell in volume, except perhaps Nissan. Maybe those sales will strengthen once Chevy and Tesla lose their tax credits.
