2023 EV sales blew past 2022 levels every month of the year

Green Car Reports

EV sales not only increased in 2023 overall, but they were higher than 2022 levels for every month of the year, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

CN EV Post

@nov22 In reply to nov22. You are contradicting yourself here. If xpeng develop all 30 models with total cost of zero (hypothetically), then there is no reason not to develop them. Any sale of the new models would be gravy. Now question is how much is development of new model would cost vs how much sale is expected and I am saying cost is a lot less than what you imagine, hence, it's worth taking this shot since the volume needed to break even is low.

Comment on Nio's charging map now accesses over 1 million 3rd-party chargers by nov22

It is hard to imagine NIO users need public charging piles on a regular basis. Nobody buys a NIO car because of access to public charging piles. Why brag about it anyway? 3.7k supercharging and destination charging are not exclusively for NIO users. Why brag about that? Not enough battery swap station in the area? I think NIO should offer discounted services fee for NIO users using the NIO charging piles.
