Over Half A Million Electric Vehicles Have Been Sold In The US

Electric vehicle (EV) sales have passed the hall million mark in the US, and the pace of sales has picked up in the last few years. Interestingly, it does not seem that there is a correlation between EV adoption and gas prices.
Between November 2015 and November 2016, more than 130,000 plug-in hybrid or battery-powered EVs were sold, bringing the total number of EVs on the road in the U.S. and Canada to close to 535,000. In the U.S. alone, 542,000 EVs have been sold to date.
Personally, I have nothing against hybrids or pure electrics, I don't drive long distances except for a few times a year - although I think I would lease such a vehicle rather than purchase it outright.
