Twenty years ago today I started my drive "Clean Across America And Back," a journey from Los Angeles, CA to Portland, ME and back in my +Dodge #naturalgas van, visiting dozens of #CleanCities coalitions enroute. Tomorrow I'll be talking with my local coalition, #STCHawaii, about their #WeAre100 project. Still lots to be done... http://www.altfuels.org/cleannbk.shtml

Automakers are no longer as forthcoming as they used to be about #EV #PHEV sales, but InsideEVs ferrets out the numbers each month (many thanks!). I updated my USA sales charts at www.altfuels.org/misc/evsales.shtml using their June data. Almost one in every four plug-in vehicles sold this month was a +Tesla #Model3; I expect that next quarter +Tesla will deliver more plug-ins than all other automakers combined!

I updated my webpage on US #EVs #PHEV sales at www.altfuels.org/misc/evsales.shtml with March data from InsideEVs. +Tesla has overtaken +General Motors in cumulative number of plug-in vehicles delivered in US! GM had a dozen-year head start with the #EV1, but they seem to have misunderstood what was meant by #crushingit.

A slightly belated webpage with pictures and comments on the state of the #electricvehicle and #PHEV market in #Hawaii from the Electric Island Drive, which was the Oahu observance of National Drive Electric Week in September 2017: www.altfuels.org/events/otherafv/ndew2017.shtml

I detoured to the #LAAutoShow on the way to +American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting in #NewOrleans and posted a report at http://www.altfuels.org/events/autoshow/laas17.shtml on the many new #EVs & #PHEVs I saw there. Exciting times! I also finally posted a page of pointers for new and prospective #EV drivers at http://www.altfuels.org/general/newleaf.shtml, based on 8 months' experience with our +Nissan USA #LEAF from #KingWindwardNissan.

A little late with the updates again. I added my usual monthly update to my webpage on cumulative #EVs, #PHEV, and #fuelcell vehicles sold and leased in the USA, with September data from #InsideEVs, at http://www.altfuels.org/misc/evsales.shtml. Also added a fifth year of data to my webpage discussing performance of our +SunPower #PV system (installed by +RevoluSun Smart Home) at http://www.altfuels.org/misc/pv.shtml. Saw a bit of a spike in usage in April, since we bought a +Nissan USA #LEAF on #EarthDay2017! Gonna need more panels.

Haven't posted the last couple of months' updates, but I just added June InsideEVs data to my charts of #EVs #PHEV and #fuelcell vehicle sales in U.S. Looking forward to adding #Tesla #Model3 in July! http://www.altfuels.org/misc/evsales.shtml

Also, my family added one to the +Nissan USA #LEAF tally on #EarthDay2017 in April. That meant I missed the #MarchForScience, but I figured it was a pretty good excuse. This #TLDR essay would have been my #whywemarch testament: http://www.altfuels.org/misc/science.shtml

Slightly belated updates: report on #alternativefuels vehicles at #HawaiiAutoShow, with first +BYD #electricvehicles I've seen. Also, update to my cumulative #EVs (including #PHEV) sales charts for US with March data from InsideEVs.

Belated update of my cumulative #EVs (#electricvehicles and #PHEV) sales charts for US for February, with InsideEVs data. +Toyota USA #PriusPrime and +Chevrolet #BoltEV immediately jumped into the top five fastest-selling vehicles! +Honda #ClarityFCV initial pace is comparable with that of the +Toyota USA #Mirai a year earlier.

January update of my cumulative #EVs sales charts for US market, with InsideEVs data. +Toyota USA #PriusPrime and Chevrolet #BoltEV are off to very strong starts! The +Honda #ClarityFCV entered the market, so I added it to the #FuelCell charts alongside the +Toyota USA #Mirai. I'm also going to start providing tables for these vehicles like the ones that I crib from at InsideEVs (I have only found one number for the +HyundaiUSA Tucson Fuel Cell).
