fully electric car sales were up 48% in July 2016 (compared to July 2015), plug-in hybrid sales were up 49%, and overall electric car sales were thus up 48.4%.

That’s a big improvement over year-through-July growth, which shows fully electric car sales up 4%, plug-in hybrids up 44%, and all electric car sales up 19%.

Overall, electric car sales climbed to nearly 0.9% of overall US car sales (including SUVs, pickups, etc.).

In the month of July, electric car sales surged 48% — mostly on the back of Tesla, but also due to big jumps in sales of the Chevy Volt, BMW i3, Ford Fusion Energi, and Chevy Spark EV.  The year to date average is closer to 19%.
