167 for December ... makes it #3 highest selling EV

December 2013 Plug-In Electric Vehicle Sales Report Card

"SMART ForTwo Electric Drive: Despite only being available regionally, the smart ED continues to put up strong numbers (relatively speaking) – for December 167 were sold.

Quirky fact of the 2nd half? The smart ED was the 3rd best selling pure electric vehicle for the last 6 months of 2013 with 750 units sold."

Looks like total U.S. Smart ED sales in 2013 was just under 1000
Smart-all models-sold about 11,000 units in the U.S. in 2013, the only mfg's that sold less were companies like Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini.

In comparison, Mercedes Benz had about 335,000 total sales in the U.S.
That sounds like a lot, and it is, until you see some figures like

734,000 Ford F-150's were sold in the USA in 2013,
Over 400,000 Camry's sold. LOL, more Camrys sold than the total of all Mercedes models combined.

We are not making a big dent in the fossil-fuel transportation marketplace.
But we are unusual little fishies in a very big pond.

How big is the pond? 15.6 million new automobiles sold in the USA in 2013

So us Smart drivers in the USA make up about 7/100ths of a percent of the new vehicles on the road. If you see 1500 one-year old or newer cars today, one of them is likely to be a Smart. You will have to see at least 15,000 new cars for the odds to be that one of them is a Smart ED. The good news is that it is easy to pick us out from the crowd...

The way I see this is that Smart is an exclusive car. I realize that it's price is not exclusive, that anyone could buy one and that it's only a two-seater. But even sports cars only have two seats.

The Camry and the F150 are for "normal" or "average" people. The Smart is for eccentric, practical, people who want to save money and have the best maneuverability this side of a motor bike. We're an elite club.
