There Are Now More Electric Vehicles Sold Than Cars With Manual Transmissions

Tesla

According to research done by J.D. Power, in the third quarter of 2019, more Americans bought electric vehicles than they did cars with manual transmissions. Gearheads everywhere are hanging their heads.

Basically, you are more likely to find an electric vehicle on a dealership lot than one with a manual transmission.

As of last quarter, electric vehicles like Teslas, Nissan Leafs, Chevy Bolts, and others accounted for 1.9 percent of all cars sold in the U.S. compared to vehicles with a stick that accounted for just 1.1 percent. J.D. Power’s Tyson Jominy is recommending people to get their hands on those stick shift vehicles while they still can, as they will be in short supply in the coming years most likely.
