    . . . the U.S. soon will hit 1 million units.

    From 2008, when the modern electrification era began with the launch of the Tesla Roadster, through Sept. 30, 2018, U.S. sales of plug-in vehicles (plug-in hybrids and battery-electrics) stand at 956,348, Wards Intelligence data shows. Pre-2008 sales roughly number 2,200 units.

    BEVs make up more than half of the 2008-2018 figure.

    If monthly sales of each continue at September’s rates, the 1 million mark should be reached sometime in November.

    I think peak oil projections make more sense now, as what was required to diminish oil was an alternative not some supply crisis.
