American Electric Automobiles

A Car and details of American Electric Automobiles

The American Electric was a U.S. automobile produced in Chicago from 1899 to 1902, and later in Hoboken, New Jersey in 1902. Established by Clinton Edgar Woods in 1895 as the American Electric Vehicle Co. in Chicago merged with the Indiana Bicycle Co. in 1898, evolving into Waverly, and subsequently Pope-Waverley.

The company crafted various electric carriages, including some with an unconventional, tall dos-a-dos four-seater design. These vehicles were purportedly capable of covering distances ranging from 35 miles (56 km) to 50 miles (80 km). However, the manufacturer acknowledged that “very few private carriages would ever be subjected to such a test.” In 1902, the company relocated to New Jersey to attract wealthier customers, but regrettably, it ceased operations within the same year, as stated in a company announcement.

As of December 2023, the combined sales of roadworthy electric cars in the United States hit an impressive 4,684,128 units since 2010. In 2023 alone, 1,402,371 units were sold, claiming a 9.1% market share—a historic milestone, marking the first time the American market surpassed the 1 million sales mark. California stands out as the leading regional market for plug-in vehicles in the country, boasting 1 million registered plug-in cars by November 2021, constituting 46% of the national stock. Additionally, the other nine states adhering to the California Air Resources Board’s Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) regulations contributed another 10% to the overall American stock.

California, spearheading the plug-in market, witnessed substantial growth in sales, reaching 237,618 units in 2021, up from 132,742 in 2020—an impressive increase of 79.0%. The state’s plug-in segment market share demonstrated a steady climb from 4.9% in 2017 to 8.1% in 2020, ultimately reaching an impressive 12.8% in 2021.

In 2017, the plug-in segment in America claimed a modest market share of 1.13%, rising from 0.90% in 2016.

In 2018

Before 2018, the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid held the title of the all-time best-selling plug-in electric car, boasting 152,144 units across both generations. However, in 2019, the Tesla Model 3, an all-electric car, surpassed the discontinued Chevrolet Volt, becoming the all-time best-selling plug-in car in U.S. history with approximately 300,471 units delivered since its inception. Following closely were the Tesla Model S with about 157,992 units and the Chevrolet Volt with 157,054 units. The Tesla Model S dominated sales for three consecutive years from 2015 to 2017, while the Model 3 continued the trend, topping sales for three consecutive years from 2018 to 2020.

In 2021

By April 2021, three U.S. states had introduced government mandates to prohibit the sale of gasoline-powered cars, aiming to drive the transition to electric vehicles. Washington State proposed legislation to ban the sales and registrations of gasoline-powered light vehicles made for or after their 2030 model year. California planned to prohibit the sale of all new fuel-burning cars by 2035, and Massachusetts aimed to do the same by 2035.

In December 2021, the Biden administration implemented Executive Order 14057, a nationwide federal government mandate set to ban new fossil fuel vehicles across all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and all U.S. territories by 2035. This order would restrict new fossil-fuel-powered government-owned vehicles by 2027, new fossil-fuel buses by 2030, and new privately owned and commercial-owned vehicles by 2035, contributing to the push for the widespread adoption of electric vehicles.
