Default Toyota Prius Prime Solidifies Lead In Affordable U.S. EV Sales With Impressive Stayin

The Toyota Prius Prime continues to out-sell every other affordable EV. However, its steady domination in the affordable EV class is overshadowed by Tesla's Model 3 sales news.

The Toyota Prius Prime plug-in hybrid electric vehicle continues to be the dominant seller in the U.S. affordable EV segment. For July, the Prius Prime grew by 25% to just under 2,000 units sold. For the year, the Prime's sales are up 42%.

By contrast, the Chevy Bolt battery-electric vehicle (BEV) and Nissan Leaf BEV have a sales rate about half that of the Toyota Prius Prime's. The Chevy Volt extended-range electric vehicle (EREV) is doing better and in July Chevy sold nearly 1,500 units.

Year to date, the Prius Prime has sold 16,239 units. Chevy has sold 9,289 Volts* and 9,033 Bolts*. The new Nissan Leaf is a sales disappointment. Nissan has only sold 7,808 units and is now selling more slowly than the just-introduced Honda Clarity PHEV. The Honda Clarity BEV is still in its initial launch stages and selling only in limited markets.
