Plug-in Electric Vehicle Sales Need a Shake-up

August 30, 2011

From: Environmental News Network

Although it’s only August, the electric vehicle market has the feeling of coming into the home stretch for the year. We have seen the race for plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) glory boil down to the Leaf and Volt this year, with the Volt sputtering a bit earlier than expected. We have seen numerous delays pushing new launches back months (Coda, Fisker, Ford, and Toyota). All of this has left the PEV market feeling a bit underwhelming for 2011. Particularly when you consider that the President has given the market a goal of 1 million PEVs on the road in four and half short years — 8,000 down, 992,000 sales to go.
