Plug-in electric car sales in Dec: 2017 set new record, Bolt EV ends strong (final update)

This year’s sales appear to have exceeded last year’s roughly 160,000 by perhaps 20 percent, surpassing 190,000 and perhaps even 195,000 but apparently just missing the 200,000 level.

Some of that has to do with production cadences: the new, longer-range 2018 Nissan Leaf will go on sale in January, and stocks of the old version have been all but depleted over the past few months.

Meanwhile, the Tesla Model 3 has been stuck in “production hell” for several months, in the evocative words of Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Only 1,810 were delivered between July and December last year
