Electric Vehicle Sales and Future Projections

The objective of this research is to evaluate historical vehicle sales as a basis to determine future projections of electric vehicles sales and cumulative values within the United States and by selected states. The results for the U.S. show that the cumulative sales of electric vehicles through 2013 is 167,600 vehicles with 96,700 sold in 2013 or that 58 percent of total vehicles were sold in 2013. Depending upon the escalation rate selected, the 10 year future U.S. cumulative sales (2023) are predicted to be from 1.8 to 7.3 million vehicles. Future predictions were also done for the states of Florida, Hawaii, Alabama and for comparison purposes for Georgia, California and New York. The process used was the same as done for the U.S. beginning with known values for 2013 and then using a 10, 15, 20, 25 and 35 percent growth rate.
