The purpose of this monthly report is to track U.S. electric vehicle (EV) sales and EV charging station installation trends and growth. Level-1, Level-2, and DC-Fast charging stations are tracked in the report for the U.S. overall, by state, ownership type, charging network, and by facility type.


Analysis and data for this report is done by Zpryme using the U.S. Department of Energy and Argonne National Lab (ANL) EV data set and the U.S. Alternative Fuel Data Center electric vehicle charging station data set. Zpryme monthly tracking for U.S. EV sales started in January of 202 and monthly tracking for EV charging stations started in April of 2021.
