In the YTD table, good news also for Ford's SUV Kuga PHEV, that shooted to #6, and the Korean Hyundai Ioniq PHEV, that came out of the dark into #12, being the two major changes to the table.
A reference also to the DS 7 PHEV, that climbed to #9, making 3 PSA models in the 9 top positions, while the Porsche Cayenne PHEV joined the ranking, in #20.
Outside the Top 20, besides the aforementioned Peugeot 2008 EV, the BMW X3 PHEV and Volvo XC40 PHEV also shined, by delivering 26 and 44 units, respectively, with the Swedish model poised to join the Top 20 soon.
