The sales numbers highlighted a woeful disparity between what Americans say in polls, and what they will actually buy.</p><p>To be sure, the EV sales numbers are rising.

So there may be light at the end of the tunnel. </p><p>Here, we’ve collected photos of the top-ten-selling electric vehicles in the US. The numbers and photos tell a story about the hard realities of the automotive market. They show that the best of those EVs – all from Tesla – are making in-roads. But beyond the market’s hearty support for Tesla, EV sales figures are still lackluster.</p><p>We invite you to click through the following slides and tell us what you think.
