Moneyshake  just completed an interesting and compelling study about today's global electric car production and sales.

The data looks at which automakers produce and sell the most electric and gas cars per minute. However, arguably much more important is which EV makers sell the most cars per hour by brand and country.

  5. Ford---12.2 per minute
