According to the electrical vehicle advocacy group Veloz, EVs and plug-in hybrids accounted for 25.4% of California’s new motor vehicle product sales in the second quarter of 2023.

The actual number of vehicles with charge ports purchased was 125,939, representing a new quarterly figure for California, which often leads the United States in the selling of plug-in vehicles. The Q2 total increased by 59% year over year from the Q2 2022 total of 79,129 vehicles.

In the first half of 2023, the California Electrical power Fee (CEC) recorded 223,298 zero-emission motor vehicle product sales, including 1,767 hydrogen gas-cell vehicles, 190,802 battery-electric vehicles, and 30,729 plug-in hybrids. The cumulative number of zero-emission vehicles sold in California as of 2023, including 1,146,312 EVs, 460,602 plug-in hybrids, and 16,297 gas-cell vehicles for each CEC, is 1,623,211 units.

While EV profits are now tracking at roughly 6% of total auto revenue for this year, the numbers also give California’s 12-month sales of all zero-emission motor vehicles a 24.3% sector share.

According to Veloz, the two best-selling plug-in cars in California in Q2 2023 were the Tesla Design Y and Design 3, which were then followed by the plug-in hybrid Jeep Wrangler 4xe. These most recent revenue figures so maintain the trend of Tesla’s EV lead growing while many other EVs encroach—and EV sales as a whole increase.

Tesla surpassed Toyota in California’s Q2 2023 product sales and in 2022, it attained 15% of the state’s total auto market. However, this most recent report shows that around 64% of the EVs purchased in California were Teslas, showing that Tesla’s portion of its former property situation is declining. There could be a number of reasons for this. According to a recent Bloomberg report, some Tesla business owners are losing faith in CEO Elon Musk, but Tesla is also up against stronger opposition than ever before.
