With gas prices through the roof these days, many people are considering purchasing electric vehicles. While newer EVs have a better range and newer technology, they can cost a pretty penny! So, if you’re in the market for an EV, but are trying to keep things within a
tight budget, you might want to consider a
used electric car.
To help sift through all the used EV options,
Jerry will take a look at the top five best-selling EVs from 2014 with some help from
MotorBiscuit. Is your next used EV on this list?
5. Ford Fusion Energi
With the looks of the standard Ford Fusion, but in a
hybrid form, this EV had an electric range of 20 miles, an mpg equivalent of 88 miles, and a total range of 550 miles. The Fusion Energi sold 11,550 units in 2014—not bad numbers for a car that seems to have slipped under the radar.
4. Toyota Prius Plug-in
The Prius started 2014 strong in sales but ended the year on a steep downturn. The total units sold that year were 13,264, which was still more than the prior year. This is still a popular choice for drivers today. Prius sales are still going strong, and have been considered reliable, practical cars for many years.
3. Tesla Model S
According to Motor Biscuit, Tesla likes to keep its actual sales figures under wraps, so EV reporters had to do some estimating. Tesla posted varying reports, but the best estimate is that 17,300 Teslas were sold that year. As a hybrid, the 2014 Model S had an electric range of 208 miles and 95 combined mpg. Teslas have become more and more popular in the years since, and are one of the
best-selling EVs of all time.
2. Chevrolet Volt
The Chevy Volt sold an average of around 1,500 cars per month in 2014 with a final total of 18,805 units sold that year. The popular Volt could run completely on electric power with a 38-mile range on pure electricity until switching to gas power, on which it got a combined 98 mpg. Chevy dropped production of its hugely popular Volt in 2019 to concentrate on the fully-electric
1. Nissan Leaf
The Nissan Leaf blew all the other EVs out of the water in 2014 in terms of sales numbers. The Leaf sold 30,200 units that year. This was a record in the United States at this time. The 2014 Leaf got 114 mpg combined and an electric range of 84 miles. The Nissan Leaf is one of the only non-Tesla EVs to break into the list of best-selling EVs of all time. The Leaf was a standout in 2014 and beyond.
