Sales results remain relatively good taking into consideration that in July most of the plug-ins were sold only with a scrap of the federal tax credit.
In July, plug-in electric car sales in the U.S. decreased year-over-year, which is something to which we are not accustomed to after years of growth. However, 26,395 sales (confirmed or estimated by InsideEVs) is not bad either. The decrease was just 10.8%.
The main reason behind the decline is theTesla Model 3, which in 2018 was sold at a high volume only in North America and now is exported in high numbers also to Europe and China.
