The electric car movement is stronger than ever in California. Sales in 2018 spiked over the summer—driven by deliveries of Tesla’s Model 3—and by December, California was home to more than a half-million electric cars. And if you consider electric trucks, buses, bikes, scooters and other modes of transportation, the number is higher. Automakers are announcing new electric models, including trucks and SUVs, and more jobs are being created with increased investment in the electric car industry. In 2018, total California electric car sales increased 84 percent compared to 2017 sales. Monthly sales of electric cars are near 10 percent of all new cars sold. That is something to celebrate.
