EV Sales Stats


While we wait for China numbers, the most anticipated market of the season (Will Kandi and BYD continue to grow indefinitely, how will Tesla and Zotye behave, will there be any new model arriving?), i've decided to share with you some of EV Sales statistics, which show a stable growth in views since Day One, for which i am thankful to all of you guys (And girls), and it gives me the drive to continue with this project, 265.000 views later.

As you can see, there are a couple of surprises here, if France and the US doesn't surprise anybody for being on top, Germany is a rather surprising Number Three, just like Japan in #4, i don't have much feedback coming from those parts, but it's nice to see that EVS has a following there (By the way, does anyone there knows the sales numbers of the Accord Plug-In there?).

But the biggest surprise to me is the Fifth Place of South Korea, their home market isn't that big and it wasn't been much mentioned here, but nevertheless it is rewarding to know that they keep following us. By the way, does any of you have the SK numbers? It seems that my source there had dried out...

Finally, Russia. Despite a symbolic (To say the most) market, there are many followers there of electric cars scene in general, and EV Sales in particular, with much feedback coming from there, i must thank our Russian followers for their enthusiasm, especially considering that it must not be easy to EVangelize (Joke intended) their compatriots to plug-in cars.

Looking by most popular articles, China (#1 and #8) proves to be the "IT" thing of the moment, with many stock websites citing EV Sales in Tesla and Kandi articles. Yes, something important is happening in this market...

Next in #2 we have the sales history of plug-ins in Norway, back from the 90's until today, this is something that i will look up to do something similar to other markets in the future.

The Norway and Europe articles are also popular, with the first one being analyzed by many like a case study for the future in other EV markets.

Switzerland August 2014

BMW Shines

In an average sales month (123 sales), BMW was the star of the month, with the i3 again Best Selling EV of the month, with 41 units, allowing it to leave behind the Renault Zoe and reach #2 in the YTD ranking, while the i8 sports car had a brilliant performance, selling 10 units, enough for a Fourth Place in August and pushing it to #9 in the YTD ranking, surpassing McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 in the plug-in sports car ranking, although, truth be told, it is a bit unfair to compare seven-figure-priced cars with six-figure-ones...Even in Switzerland.

As for the rest of the ranking, there weren't that many sales to mention, with the Nissan Leaf selling 7 units and winning the isolated #5 place.


Looking at the manufacturers ranking, the top three are running for Number One, with the leader Renault (29%) losing ground to Tesla (27% share), and BMW (23%).

France August 2014 (Updated with LCV's)

Vacances II Edition

The French EV market declined yet again to 774 units sold, and there's nothing new here, as August is usually the worst selling month in France, due to holiday periods. What is a bit concerning, is that in the same month of 2013, sales surpassed 800 units, this trend also happened in the French global auto market, with last month being the worst in decades...When will the dark clouds disappear over the auto french market?

Speaking of the Models ranking, the leader Renault Zoe was down (167 units), just like most of the competition, which must have gone to the Cote D'Azur to enjoy the sun. The workhorse Kangoo ZE, instead, stayed at full speed, registering 232 units and winning the Best Selling title at the same time.

In the midst of this Laissez-Faire, there were two important introductions to the ranking, the VW e-Golf landed with 51 units and jumped right away to #5 in the monthly ranking, promising to be one tough cookie for the rest of the competition, will we see the german car fighting for the leadership soon? The other new addition is the Kia Soul EV, registering its first 11 units, if the korean brand starts to be as agressive in the EV market as it is in the regular car market, we should see the Soul EV slowly but surely climbing positions over time.
