Dave Evanson, Senior Domain Broker at Sedo, announced that he brokered the sale of the ElectricCar.com domain name for $180,000. The sale announcement was posted on Dave’s Twitter account this morning:

Whois records show that the domain name is currently registered to Sedo’s escrow and transfer account, so the buyer is unknown at this time. With such a high sale price, I would not be surprised if a major electric car manufacturer or well-funded startup acquired the domain name.
The seller appears to be a business called QualityNames.com. ElectricCar.com forwards to a DAN landing page with the “make offer” option showing. I do not see any historical sales records for ElectricCar.com in NameBio, nor do I see any other sale listings advertising the domain name for sale.
Barring any larger publicly reported sales in the next few days, this sale will rank as one of the ten largest domain name sales of the year to date in the DNJournal sales report. This is the fifth largest publicly reported sale of the year closed via Sedo. It will also be the largest two word .com domain name sale of the year, beating out the $150,000 sale of BettingTips.com, a domain name that was also sold by Sedo.
