Half way through the year and the June sales numbers for plug-in electric vehicles are beginning to roll in with the Chevrolet Volt range-extended electric car moving 1,760 units in the month, a relatively strong showing, and Nissan selling a paltry 535 Leafs.

These sales bring the calendar year’s first half totals to 3,148 for the Leaf and 8,817 for the Volt. This second number is especially impressive, since if this trend continues it will mean that Chevy will more than double the number of Leafs it sold last year, 7,671. After a troubling, sputtering start, Chevy and its Volt may finally be finding some purchase.

Mitsubishi meanwhile sold a Larry-Bird-like 33 ‘I’ electric minicars in the month.
