CUS Crosses 10 Billion “EMiles” Driven
Here’s how our estimated numbers shake out. As of February 2016 the total number of emiles driven is about 10.7 billion. And since more than 300 Million of those emiles were driven in February alone it’s likely that the 11th billionth is happening right about now (late March 2017).”
We did account for the Volt and other PHEVs hybrid fuel nature. Below is a table of emiles per month by EV model. Estimates are based on data from studies out of the Idaho National Laboratory and the California Air Resources Board as well as some OEM data. Check our methodology here and we welcome corrections and improvements to our estimates. While the Volt and LEAF total cumulative miles are essentially a dead heat, why is the Tesla Model S, with its longer range (which seems to account for a larger monthly emiles driven) lagging? It’s just a matter of time. Volt and LEAF sales began a few years ahead of the Model S and this chart shows the Model S tracking at roughly the same curve just two years later..
Taking a look at the EV fleets by manufacturer GM and Nissan have racked up emiles at about the same rate since 2012. With the combination of Tesla Model S and Model X (and peppering in the Roadster miles), Tesla is poised to rapidly overtake the lead. It gained 3% in share of total US emiles between January of 2016 and 2017, while Nissan and GM’s share each shrank by 3%.
Tesla Could Take the Lead as Soon as 2018 Elon Musk should learn the MC Hammer dance because no one will be able to touch Tesla on emiles driven by 2018. Chevrolet’s Bolt is projected to sell 30k over the course of 2017. Tesla is projecting a 50% increase in Model S and Model X sales. If Tesla sales come anywhere near those numbers, as they have in past years, it will keep the electric car company well ahead of Chevy. And that’s not counting the 50k+ Model 3 US deliveries predicted by Musk in 2017.
