In August 2020, cumulative U.S. plug-in vehicle sales reached 1.6 million units, according Argonne National Laboratory data. Plug-in vehicles consist of both battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).
Cumulative BEV sales reached one million units while cumulative PHEV sales were about 600,000. Since June of 2015, BEV sales have outpaced PHEV sales and for the last year, BEVs accounted for 60% or more of all plug-in vehicle sales.
A total of 25,269 plug-in vehicles (19,164 BEVs and 6,105 PHEVs) were sold during August 2020 in the United States, down 11.2% from the sales in August 2019. PEVs captured 1.91% of total LDV sales in this month.
Cumulatively, 164,672 PHEVs and BEVs have been sold in 2020. In total, 1,608,299 PHEVs and BEVs have been sold since 2010.[source: Argonne National Laboratory]
