General Motors Co (GM.N) said on Tuesday it will stop reporting monthly U.S. vehicle sales ...
 
Tesla Model 3 .. 3820
Prius Prime .....2922
Model S ...........3375
Model X ...........2825
Bolt ..................1774
Volt ..................1782
LEAF ................1500
Honda Clarity PHEV 1061
BMW i3 .............992
 
None of those numbers are a surprise to me. I fully expect the Model 3 to maintain the #1 spot every month this year. In fact, I don't expect it to be de-throned until something like the Model Y comes along.

What will be interesting to see is the Model 3's effect on EVs like the Bolt. It could have no effect, and GM simply controls Bolt sales via production and distribution. It could hurt Bolt sales, as the queue shortens and more people are willing to wait for the Model 3. Or it could have a "rising tide raises all ships" effect, and help all EV sales by increasing awareness. 2018 will be an exciting year for EV sales, whichever way it goes.

I really hope it's the "Or" portion of your post. Every person I've talked to who owns an EV, every person I've talked to about the benefits of EV ownership, every friend who has test driven my Tesla all have the same types of reactions. They are a combination of impressed and speechless.
