Electric vehicle sales continue to increase this year, according to Inside EVs.

Although some results have yet to be reported, it estimates that 50 percent more battery and plug-in hybrid EVs found homes in October 2017 than the year before.

And head and shoulders above them all was the Chevrolet Bolt EV.
Chevy sold 2,871 of them in October, making it the best selling EV of the month by quite some margin.

The next closest was the Toyota Prius Prime, which notched up 1,626 sales.

That means that the Bolt EV is now the second-best selling EV for the year thus far at just over 17,000 sold—not bad for a car that only went on sale in all 50 states in the second half of the year.
Anecdotally, I’ve started seeing a lot more of them in the DC area during the last few weeks, but that’s probably worthless other than as a casual observation.

The Bolt EV’s sales are probably coming at the expense of the Volt, which recorded its worst month of 2017 with only 1,362 sold.
