US’ EV registrations rise 95% with the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y at the helm

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

While electric cars still comprise but a fraction of the United States’ total vehicle sales, the pace of EV adoption in the country is accelerating significantly. This was evident in the first four months of 2021, which saw EV registrations rise 95% compared to the same period in 2020. 

As per a new report from Experian, the US’ overall new vehicle registrations from January to April 2021 were 36% higher than the same period last year. This trend was partly due to auto dealers seeing more sales as the country’s economy recovers from the pandemic. And amidst this trend, electric vehicles are proving themselves as strong players in the market. 

EVs still only comprised 2.3% of the US market in the first quarter of 2021, but during this period, customers registered new EVs at three times the rate of other types of new vehicles, as per a MarketWatch report. Tesla remains the dominant player in this category, with 71% of new electric vehicles registered in the United States being a car from the company. 

Two key models stood tall among their competitors: the Tesla Model Y, which saw 53,102 new registrations, and the Model 3, which saw 35,468 registrations. The two Teslas were followed by the Chevy Bolt, which saw 13,611 registrations, the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which saw 6,104 registrations, and the Nissan Leaf, which saw 5,023 registrations. 

The Audi e-tron (4,321), Porsche Taycan (3,002), Hyundai Kona (2,192), Tesla Model X (1,730), and Tesla Model S (1,633) rounded out the Top 10 EVs that were most registered in the United States from January to April 2021. These numbers are interesting especially for the Model S and Model X, as the two vehicles were not produced at this period at all. Back then, Tesla was still in the process of updating its production lines for the Model S and Model X’s refreshed variants. 

Interestingly, EV registrations in the United States seem to be picking up in locations outside California. The Golden State corresponded to 38% of new EV registrations in Q1 2021, while Florida comprised 7.2%. Texas, a state that is yet to allow Tesla to sell its vehicles directly to customers, corresponded to 5.9% of EV registrations in the first quarter of 2021.
