Austria April 2013

A couple of white Renault Twizies (?)

Nissan Leaf Superstar - Austrian Edition

April saw the Austrian EV market showing some pulse, with 45 sales, the best month of the year but still far from the near hundred sales/month it used to register last year. As consequence of this, the EV share is down to 0,09% when last year it ended at 0,30%.

Looking at the models chart, three models stand out: like in 2012, the Renault Twizy is #1 YTD but in the April chart the Nissan Leaf won the top spot  for the first time and with it climbed four positions, regarding last year, to a brilliant #2 YTD.  The Opel Ampera secures a brilliant third place, up 8(!) positions comparing with last year chart and already selling more units than in the whole year of 2012 (10 units), this is a rare bright spot for the Opel Plug-In, which is watching their sales go down everywhere.

Stumbling Dropping in the chart are the Kangoo ZE and Fluence ZE, both tied in number 9, when last year they were much higher (#3 and #4 respectively), but despite these weak points, Renault is still the #1 brand here, with 36% share.
