Electric cars continue to sell well in spite of lower gas prices. Why? Because it is still an order of magnitude less expensive to fill up an electric vehicle. And that’s if you pay for your electricity rather than get it from solar panels or free EV chargers. I expect Tesla’s Model X launch, the rise of solar panels and continuing education of car buyers to accelerate this trend for the second half of 2015. Five more graphs below:

The graph with the map of the U.S. appears to measure the wrong metric. There are always going to be more widgets (here, Chargers) in California because it has 1/10th of the U.S. Population. Maybe a better metric is chargers per 10,000 residents?
