|Renault Zoe Taxi|
Italians love small cars, so it's no surprise that the Renault Twizy is the great responsible for the takeoff of EV's there. In 2012 the french quadricycle sold 1.545 units sold, achieving a enormous 66% share of the market, distancing itself from the runner-up, the Kangoo ZE, which sold just at 234 units.
The first passenger vehicles come in third, with the Nissan Leaf posting a record sale of 44 cars in December, enough to reach the third place tied with the Citröen C-Zero at 146 units.
Italy is still a BEV haven, with the best performance from a Plug-In Hybrid being a #6 by the Opel Ampera and just 3% share.
2013 will see the arrival of the Renault Zoe, which impact will help to determine the growth rate of this market.
