When you look up the answer, note that market share peaked in 2014, and then fell in 2015.
The reason I bring this up is because there are folks who feel that "we" need to levy taxes/fees on miles driven rather than on gasoline consumed. Assuming those taxes/fees would not be an increase in gasoline taxes already paid, I was curious to what extent EVs contributed to highway traffic.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota Calls It Quits; Cites Huge Losses
Remember "MNsure"? If not, see this post. LOL. It looks like things just got worse. The AP is reporting:
Minnesota's largest health insurer will pull the bulk of its plans off the individual market due to heavy financial losses.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota said late Thursday will affect approximately 103,000 residents who buy coverage through MNsure, with an agent or directly from the company.
The company cited heavy losses in the individual market for their exit, though it will continue offering a smaller number of plans through a subsidiary.
Governor Mark Dayton says his administration will work with people affected by the decision to ensure they can transition to new coverage for 2017 when their current plans expire.
I don't know why Governor Dayton doesn't simply use other people's money (OPM) to provide insurance for these 103,000 residents. The state has a population of 5.5 million. 103,000 represents only 2% of the entire population. If everyone in Minnesota kicked in $1,000/year, these 103,000 residents would be adequately covered, one would assume. That would work out to about $54,000/newly uninsured -- that should be more than enough for annual health care insurance in Minnesota.It's the second major shakeup in Minnesota's individual health care market. PreferredOne stopped selling its plan on MNsure in 2015.
In addition, giving those folks a check for $54,000 up-front would be like winning the lottery. Many of the recipients would probably vote to re-elect Governor Dayton and isn't this what it's all about in the first place, anyway?
iPad may auto-correct "MNsure" to "Manure." The latter may be the preferred spelling for all I know in St Paul.
