From 2014 through 2019, California EV sales accounted for roughly half or more of US EV sales – from a low of 49.6% in 2019 to a high of 57.3% in 2017. At 40.7%, 2020 saw California account for its second lowest share of US EV sales since 2011. It is a mixed blessing however — as California which sets the mark for EV sales — has been flat or declining the last few years. So it is good news that the rest of the US is picking up some of the slack, but worrisome that California hasn’t seen significant YOY increases in recent years.
